New Ram Air Hood from Suncoast Creations....

Here are some pics of the new ram air hood from Suncoast creations in south Florida. http://www.suncoastramairhoods.com/index.htm

They will be releasing the hood in about two weeks and have not released a price point as of yet. I have purchased two hoods from them in the past and I assure you the quality is top notch.

Here is the copy of the email "These shots of our prototype will be going out in our press release in the next two to three weeks. I don't want to let too much out until we are ready to go into production since we have had several of our concepts stolen over the years. Even when they steal my designs they never match our quality or internal engineering for water management, structural rigidity, and crash worthiness. I plan on having this in production before the end of the month.

Best Regards,


Ric Schildwachter

Here are some pics of the hood on the CGM Camaro.

Can we assume that an intake hook up to the ram air comes with the hood??

If so I am sold!! Take it easy on the price.......please!

I agree with others about the need of a mail slot delete for the SS. Very nice looking hood though!

Yeah... the mail slot is too much with that scoop. But if the scoop is functional I would really consider this hood.

Put a Knight Rider Light in the Mail SLot and there will be a reason for it to be there!

I think all of Suncoast's Ram air hoods are functionable and usally have a vent at the rear to extract heat from the engine bay.

My husband & I bought a hood via you guys back in 01 (matter of fact the car went in to the shop 9/11/01 to get the hood on & painted)

people love the sound of the car, when it starts up & shuts down lol. Hood hasnt been damanged or anything like that, in all the years we have had it on the car.

Kind of disappointed you guys took the pics off cust, cars off the next.
(NO THAT IS NOT A TRANSAM HATCH its open for show lol)

Hood looks freakin' GREAT.

But....that damn mail slot just kills it. REALLY needs the mail slot delete for that to work, IMO.

Again....LOVE the hood!

I think it actually looks pretty good even with the mail slot.

btw. What is the hood made out of? Lighter than the factory hood?

Hood looks great, but I agree with the others looks wayyyy too busy for my taste with the mail slot.

i really don't think it looks terrible with the mail slot. at least they designed it in accordance with it. the lines all match up. i like it.

my worry comes with the paint matching. my CGM will be here shortly, but it looks like the paint doesn't match exactly...of course it could be the light.

but really how easy should it be to color-match CGM..?

THATS MY CAR!

he sent you pics before he sent them to me!? lol


i plan on getting a mail slot delete once i get the hood back on. i met Ric on friday - cool guy


and the vent on the back is just stuck on there for the pics, but it will be a functional heat extractor, the designer (tom) wants to put something similar to the gills on the side for the extractor vents
