I picked up this fiber glass hood from RKsport for $600 but had to spend another $100 to have it re gel coated. It was kinda rough when it came in. They offer the same hood in a partial carbon fiber for $700. I didn't really care for the side gills but at the time (last year) it was the only functional ram air hood I could find.

Re: Carbon Fiber hood.

consider hood pins with most aftermarket hoods, its not pretty when they fly up.

some pins you cant see when installed FYI

VIS Racing and hood pins are a must.

You can also check out seibon carbon fiber products. Some of their hoods look gaudy but they are made well.

The quality of VIS is good. I had both of mine for about 5 years. Right now you can see a slight yellowing of the clear but a sand and new clear will fix that.
