http://home.comcast.net/~the_huntress/rksportvsmpdhood.htm

Went over to Speed Inc today to snap pics of cjlannoy's car since he has the MPD hood and I have the RKSport hood. The above link shows the side by side pics.

Additionally I had my car dyno'd before and after the install of the K&N Aircharger. The first run was my car stock, as this intake is my first mod. The stock run ran 283.2 and then it ran 302.1 <edit> correction, it was 302.9 jeez</edit> with the aircharger installed. While my stock run was lower than I had hoped, it was inline with other GTOs. The good news is that since this is a ram air system, I should get better numbers IRL, since a dyno can't get actual numbers for ram air. I am pleased.

I just added two more pics... forgot the top down from above the driver's side.

Holeshot... don't get either, you're too close to both Chris (Janesville) and I (Waukegan) :D

There you go! :D

Actually one more note... the RKSport hood is on sale for $476 through Friday, that's why I made it a point to get these pics up for those who needed more detailed pics of the differences. I do hope this helps.

Both hoods are very nice... subtle differences that basically bring it down to taste. I like both of them very much.

huntress, on your site you state that your hood is the mpd hood at the bottom of the page when you are talking about your dyno numbers.

I corrected my first post... I actually misquoted my 2nd dyno. It was 302.9, not 302.1

*SIGH*

Have to go find my scanner... gave mine good one to my daughter, and have hers somewhere around here.
