Carbon fiber or fiberglass?

Looking for a functional ram air hood that would work with a standard Roush air box but also would work with the stage 3 supercharged version. From the looks of it the stage 3 has a closed air box and not open like the regular air box http://store.roushperformance.com/detail.aspx?ID=1287

I'm looking for a blonde doctor, with big boobs, killer legs, sweet personality, super athletic, and highly intelligent.

Well... I don't have a fancy 2011, but the guy at the body shop I use said that he painted and put on a fiberglass hood on a 98 like mine and it looked like s**t. So my advice would be either stick with metals, or Carbon Fiber.

Hope that helps!

That does. I'm sticking with fiberglass. Using the extra $$ for other mods.

depending on the brand you may be required to run hood pins, you may not care just FYI

I have had both fiber glass and carbon fiber. 2 out of 3 of my fiberglass hoods came from Cervinis and they were perfect. Minimal prep and easy to secure without pins. I have had 2 carbon fiver from vis racing, good quality but pins are essential because be carbon fiber is so flimsy
