lol, yep agreed. The hood I have is an MPD functional cowl hood and is totally finished underside and are not made anymore. The guy (Eric) that made these passed a couple years ago, so I am having a hard time to want a different one because of how awesome it looks. Also you could get this intake!!! Made more ponies that the Holley in the GPI shootout.. Gained me 40 more.. lol.

Siebon, VIS, or Anderson are the go-to sources for CF, best quality and fit. My VIS Terminator Hood.

Yea it is a little pricey, but to me and how it performs and drives just like a stocker and the gains I got with it is well worth the money, in my book. Not to mention the attention it gets at the shows, just about every show I have attended since I installed it, 1 or 2 people ask me what brand of SUPER CHARGER is that?? lol.

Looking good! I am looking at the one WITHOUT the scoop, just the raised cowl and the vents.

Hood pins are a must. I've seen many carbon fiber hoods latch break and open under speed.

Carbon Fiber Hoods

I love my CF hood, but they dont come without things to consider
The biggest issue in these hoods:
1) The shippers dont pad these boxes as well as they should ( went through 3 hoods) until I got one that was damaged (VMS)
2) These dont do great under heavy sun, its just a fact
3) If you ever damage the CF you will have issues finding anyone to repair it for less than what you paid

I have the Hotchkiss hood pins, but had the holes professionally drilled, its a sketchy thing to do yourself
