So $775+200(shipping) for a fiberglass hood that just redirects airflow to the stock air filter location? From the what it shows in the pics it doesn't look like it allows much air flow through it's "vent" either. I'd rather just get a OTRCAI and take out the cutouts in the factory hood. Saves some $ and seems to have better effect.

If you're looking for weight reduction then you should try another site/brand. I know you can find Duraflex fiberglass hoods for less than $400 or a VIS carbon fiber hood for 1100 if $ isn't an option. I've even seen a CBK carbon fiber hood for 639. Bottom line is shop around and do some comparisons. Don't fall for gimmincks like the "redirected" air vent. Especially since a OTRCAI makes the stock vent locations functional.

It might be something to consider if you have to replace a hood for some reason. The cheezy mesh is negative points, though.

That always turns me away unless I have a specific reason to buy from that certain company. I cannot stand it when a car parts company is that stupid to not proof read the listing before posting it lolz.

I'm having issues with my carbon by design hood. First, there were visible waves in the carbon itself. Some places even look like something tried to poke through the carbon. I'm having to paint it now because of that. My other major issue is the threaded hole in the hood for the hood strut nipple. It's the wrong size for the oem part. Has anyone else had these issues? I've been trying to deal with CBD directly but getting very little response other than the usual salesguy BS.
