Personally, I prefer the Cobra R. The cowl has very straight, flat sides. It still looks good, but the Cobra hood seems classier, yet still radical.

Here is a picture I took when we had like a 7500 pollen count. It gives you an idea of how it looks from the inside. I'm just used to it now. My grandmother rode in it this past weekend she's 5'1 and couldn't see that great over the hood. I'm 5'10 5'11 and have no issues.

yeah the Cobra R doesn't get as much attention at first but people will turn around twice sometimes.

Sometimes I hardly notice it haha

Here's the site: Trucarbon 2010-2013 Mustang GT500 Carbon Fiber Hood (also fits 2013 V6/GT)

It's expensive.

They make this one though. The Saleen Powerflow hood. Adding the vents wouldn't be difficult.

You could always go with the 4" cowl. I like the way the stalker looks, though. Plus, it's functional.

Are you not interested in some of the other ram air hoods? The Mach 1 hood looks pretty sweet.

If you get one more "wow check me out" item on that car it's going to look like a circus car. Flashy hoods look best when the rest of the car doesn't scream at you. My advice would be to take all of the blue off if you get that hood.
