FINAL PRODUCTION PHASE!!! New "SHOWSTOPPER" Heat Extractor Hood

We are in the final production phase of our new Showstopper heat extractor hood. The cowl is 1" taller than stock and allows heat to escape from the rear of the hood. Each scoop on the top of the hood can function as heat extractors as well. Each vent is finished off with a machined billet vent to really set it a part from the rest. Here are a couple teaser photos. We hope to have some installed photos soon.

I'm not trying to be an asshole, because the quality of the hood looks really good and I know your company does fantastic work, but why make a hood that basically already exists in a few different fashions (I'm thinking of a similar VIS hood, I believe)? What sets this apart?

I like it! But where does the water go when it rains? It looks like it will be on top of my CAI

I don't know, but the vents look like just throwen in there. They don't follow the radius of hood line.

You have the option of not cutting the vents open if you have a daily driver. The open vents are more for people who don't drive their car everyday or in inclement weather.

Loved the prototype... I think it was the vents (too bad they changed)... need to see one finished (painted and on)

Ended up not being physically possible. I know, we were disappointed as well.

was there any consideration to making a provision to plug the vents? (something like the GTOs have) they have a rubber plug that can be easily installed/removed so the hood can be used on a daily driver too
