HOODS

what do you guys think about carbon fiber hoods? I'm looking at one that is a 3 inch cowl hood for $875.

Had one on my 05, I liked the way it looked but they are really flimsy. You will definitely need some hood pins. You also need to be really careful who you buy from not all company's turn out a good product. Try to see if the hood has rolled edges, if it doesn't , then don't buy it. Also when installing the hood pins you have to be real careful not to crack the clear, and if its an outside car have someone put some additional clear coat on it before install so it won't yellow in 3 years. Hope that helps. By the way I speak from experience, 2 hoods, 2 trunks and a full engine bay of carbon fiber.

As you can tell by my previous cars I think if you do the hood then you have to do the trunk, and that gets really expensive. A ram air fiberglass hood will be heavier obviously buy if your not racing and just going for looks they are good. Cervinis has the best quality in most people's opinion. Advantage with the fiberglass is yo ain't it and then don't have to worry about it in most cases. Some fiberglass hoods need pins but most Cervinis don't. personally my favorite other than the cow, is the Cervinis stalker hood but I don't know if they make that for the 13.

Bolt on goes on your stock hinges, lift off is only secured by hood pins on each corner. The lift off is what you see on drag cars where they pull the whole hood off to work on the car. You want bolt on
