one of the nicer ones that i have seen yet, and i like the tach too. reminds me of the old school look. You guys are lucky to have all the fun putting all these cool ass parts on the car.

Hope that it is an oil pressure gage. If it is, Howie and I need to talk. :D

OH YES! Now that is BAD A** looking! I am not a "hood scoop" fanatic. Didn't bother me at all that my '04 didn't have them. But THAT HOOD IS AWESOME. Wicked looking. Seeing that in your rearview mirror would scare the pee out of every ricer driver and a few Mustang drivers, too!

OK, Howie, we DO have to talk. :)

I second Warrens comment - hope it is an oil pressure gauge. The lines of the hood look great.

Hrm, I like the concept, but I think it's too pointy. Doesn't follow the lines
of the car too well with such a sharp angle on it. Just my opinion though.

Gauge pod is universal. It will hold any 2 1/16" gauge. We are putting a boost gauge in ours, but you could run any 2 /16" gauge you'd like in it: N20 pressure, air/ fuel ratio, fuel pressure, oil pressure, you get the idea.

Beautiful Man!!! That is the hood to have!! What will the price be? Will it be functional hood scoop?
Hood will be functional with an airbox that will work with a n/a motor or a Magnacharged one. This paticular hood has closed scoops as it is just a prototype for show, regular production hood will all have open scoops! Pricing is yet to be determined but our goal is under $800 w/o the airbox.

This seems to be one of the nicest looking "agressive" GTO hoods I've seen, including a lot of Photochops. Interesting contrast with the SLP hood, which is more in line with the subtle, European styling of the Monaro. Different strokes. :)

The gauge pod is NOT molded to the hood. It is a bolt on unit just like the old hood tachs. The hood comes w/o out the pod. The pod will be able to bolt onto any hood, factory of aftermarket. So if you like your factory hood or someone else's aftermarket hood and wanted to add the pod with your favorite gauge, you could do just that!
