COPO Hood - Like or No Like

Quick test fit of the COPO hood....I think it looks good black and might even leave it that way. Like it or too much?

Same hood Ive had on my car for a while now. I had it painted matte black.

Why do you have that much hood on your car?

That was a serious question. I didnt know if you were changing to a taller intake/elbow and needed the room.

Gotcha...if I recall correctly, at the time I ordered it we were going to be running a MAST intake with an elbow (which is fairly tall) but now we are running a simple FAST 102 intake and don't really need the room but at the end of the day I still like it so I think I will keep it.

I'd like to experiment with a sheet metal intake to see if it picks up any but we'll see down the road.

No way the Mast with an elbow would fit. My Mast ls7 with the 102mm tb mounted to the intake has very little room.

It wouldnt fit with the VFN hood you have now. That would depend on the elbow you were planning on using.

I have the same hood as with the new nitrous system it will not fit under the stock hood and it also gives extra room for the F2.

I dont have an elbow on my intake. My tb is mounted vertical directly to the intake much like a carb would be.

Are you still running the intake you were with the elbow?

ahh....wasn't paying attention and missed that detail. A low profile elbow would work I bet....I guess end of day doesn't matter as if I change the intake it would be for a sheet metal intake but the FAST should work just fine. We'll see.

Did you buy the hood direct from VFN? I love this hood and looked at it over and over.. much cheaper than MPD1 cowl hood. fit and finish looks nice too.. How much did it cost you and did you buy the "Latch" version?

Yes it latches....the fit and finish is very nice. It's a solid and beefy hood....I forget how much it was but I got it through Vengeance, they could order you one.

A lil too much for my taste, but it is def not a bad look. If it makes you happy, then who cares what we think. I do admit, that look could wear on me though.

Question

Can you get us some side view pics and also from the back side by the windshield ? Is it open on the back of the cowl ?
I have been trying to pull the trigger on this hood but I keep getting the run around on it. Was told it would be 5 weeks to make it 5 weeks ago from the maker! Just dont see paying for it and then having to wait 5+ weeks for it. How long did it take to get yours?
Thanks.
