Considering hood for our car...Opinions please

There are more and more options coming out for our cars and thus far I think these two hoods look the best. I do not like ram air hood but not with the SS scoop. Both hoods will be painted to match the car with a tad of Carbon.

RK Sports


Carbon Creations


If you think something else would look good or you know of something else is coming out soon feel free to speak up..

I think there are better hoods out there and certainly more to come. If you're asking for opinions I think neither is right for you.

Thats fine. I really like the Leno hood as most people do but no reason to wait 2 years if/when it ever comes out if it even does.

See that concerns me. I also know this is an aftermarket nose which had alignment issues.

That was the car for SEMA that was not put together right. There is a thread on here where the owner was talking about the crappy job the shop did. Its not the hood, its the shop that customized the car lol.

Go with the RK Sport one, thats the one I am getting.

I don't care much for either. Of the two I would have to say RK. Mine is staying stock as is the rest of the car appearance wise. All of my mods are performance related.

Def. RK for me. I'm not a fan of carbon fiber at all. But even the style of the other one is not appealing to me.

I had that problem, so I ordered the KITT light to fill the 1st scoop. Hopefully it turns out the way I picture it with my custom paint. As hard as it was to get rev's hood I still like it the best so far.

Yeah, it's been bugging us.

Is that a shaker hood?

Love the RK, but I'm holding my breath for the Leno one.
