It has so many hoodpins because it's fiberglass (or optional carbon fiber) and if you don't have it secured like that it will flex, bend, and crack. I would personally use aerocatch latches, but a lot of guys still prefer the traditional pins.

ehh I like the aeocatch latches but also really like the traditional pins. I think the aerocatch latches look cleaner but the pins have that as you said traditional look that for me just says muscle car.

I am going to do one or the other when I get the cobra R hood, just haven't decided which.

I have yet to see a Ram Air hood on any S197 result in any real-world gains, and the stock '13 hood probably does as good as the Cervinis hood does at heat extraction. If you have links to any real world testing showing that these hoods are proven to reduce operating temperatures, I will gladly change my opinion of them as cosmetic modifications.

Even if they are just that, I don't really care what you put on your car. Many people spend many thousands of dollars on stuff that does nothing but look cool to them. I just get incredibly annoyed when people call proven parts on cars that are actually raced "ricey."

doesn't it only funnel air to the stock CAI location? so it really won't blow any air onto your SC at all.

Ik i dont have a new car but my old new edge sixxer and it should work on gt to, but my old hood on my sixxer was a stalker 1st gen ram air hood and it dramatically drop my engine bay temps by 3-4 bars so i believe cervinis product is very cosmetic but also a useful functional part of the car.. But stock hoods can produce the same gains and looks depending on the owners eye and vision for the car

So if I was to buy the stalker hood, it is not recommend to drive in the rain. It is my dd. and rain is something I could not avoid on some ocasions. I mean I understand that the water will go right into my engine area. So with that bring said, if I'm running a dd, it would be better to go cowl induction style hood correct? Or does it matter really?

Here is a quick pic of the hood open.



You can see the open grills to let heat out. From the drivers seat, it looks like you are looking over a bbq as you see the heat let itself out the bay. A friend on the east coast, who is in the fire dept. had access to a thermal camera and took a picture and you can see the heat coming out and the cooler color around the vents. I need to find that thread on another forum.
As far as the ram air, I had to retune the car, as it was getting forced more air to the blower and it was running off. Once retuned with new hood and accepting the more air, it ran right again and was good for a small HP bump, nothing to write home about but a gain none the less.

And again, I love the Tiger hood



and even thought about getting one at one time. But Im happy with what I have now and already on to the next project.

I'm not debating that it lets heat out, I just haven't seen any evidence that it's "better" at it than the stock hood. I've talked to a few '13 owners and they have said the same thing about heat waves coming out of the hood. I think that removing the sound deadening that covers about 60% of the louvers on the stock hood would accomplish almost the same goal.

The reality is that we could go back and forth about this forever, but to the best of my knowledge, nobody has done any empirical testing to determine which is more efficient at heat dissipation.

I also agree that the Tiger Racing hood isn't the best choice for a daily driver, but then again - is any fiberglass hood really a good choice for a daily driver? I don't really think so...

Not sure what you mean? The drawbacks to fiberglass hoods (and all body panels) are well known.

They're will not hold up as well in prolonged sunlight over time, they are lighter and more flexible, which makes them more prone to twisting and flexing at speed (that's why you see a lot of "ricey" hood pins on fiberglass hoods), and they are much more brittle than aluminum hoods so will not hold up as well to rock chips and minor impacts.

None of these things matter much on a track car or garage kept weekend warrior, but I consider all of the above to be significant drawbacks on a daily driven street car.

I don't know if it's the same, but my lightning has a fiberglass Mach 1 hood and I've had that truck upwards of 150+mph using nothing but the stock hood latch. I think fiberglass hoods are a little tougher than people give them credit for when they are installed properly. I think more damage is done while trying to shut and open them, than what is done at speed.

I personally know someone who has the Cervinis Stalker hood who bought hoodpins after her hood was flexing and lifting up at ~120MPH. (yes we were on a track)

I would imagine, since heat rises, that any vented hood would allow it to escape... Stock or otherwise. I'm personally a big fan of the cowl hoods on Mustangs. It just looks bad *** and "right".

I couldn't care less if you like it or not. The point is that this style hood was first done on the mustang GT500 on Shelby's '67 prototype vert and used in the '68 model year. NOT on challengers.

I care about your opinion just as much. Just because Shelby slapped it on there doesn't mean that it looks good, or like it belongs on a Mustang. Seriously, how petty are you to post garbage like this in a thread that was dead for two weeks? Get over it.

If garbage is proving u wrong then I'm guilty. Ur statement about the hood belonging on a challenger is unfounded. If u like it or not is irrelevant.

What is there to prove wrong? My opinion? I said it looked like it belonged on a Challenger, not a Mustang - that is still my opinion. I've got better things to do with my time than argue with people like you - so welcome to my ignore list. I'm sure you'll have some witty retort anyways ... have fun with it.

I think that hood would look better on a challenger than on a mustang. It's shape doesn't flow well with the new style body in my opinion.

Thx. I can b quite witty at times. Just pointing out your historical inaccuracy of the ram air hood on mustangs. I thought the op deserved the correct info and I find it hilarious to mess with know-it-alls. Hey, that WAS fun!

Not sure what historical inaccuracy you pointed out, he was stating his opinion, and I'm not sure why you're being so argumentative either. If you don't like his opinion, which he stated in a non-threatening kind of way, then fine, no reason to drag it out especially reviving an old thread to do so
