Shelby Hood Questions

Is there a difference between the Shelby GT500 hood with horizontal hood vent rather than the stock GT hood with the two vertical vents?

Which one cools better?

Are there any aerodynamic benfits compared to the stock GT hood?

Or, is the hood just something to cosmetically tell the difference between the GT500 and GT?

Thanks!

Both are the same dimensions for 2013. No aerodynamic advantage to either one.

Any idea which one would provide more cooling?

Neither has a big advantage. Most people have removed the rubber strip on the cowl that meets the rear egde of the hood. This allows hot air to rise and exit.
