My Hood

Hey whats up guys, i just bought this new cowl induction piece for my hood and i wanted everyones opinion on it since my girlfreind hates it and i love it and i havent seen anyone doing much with their hoods. i just got it yesterday it was about 80 bucks and will be painted the same color as the car, im also painting my rear center reflector bar the vent shades and the light covers the same color as the car as soon as i get the money from the insurance company to fix the fender bender the car was in a few days ago. so tell me what you think, thanks.

HOOD

It looks good, that is, except for the fake RT badges.

Yeah, then we will be able to just call it a fake R/T, a poorly executed one at that.

BTW, that isn't a cowl induction hood. It is a "ram air" type. Cowl induction has the "scoop" at the rear of the hood facing the window. It draws air through the vacuum created there when air passes over the hood at speed.

I think they look pretty good. Post some pics when you get them painted and installed. I'm guessing you just sat them on your hood to take the picture?

Are they going to be functional?

I like the rear wing... looks much better than the stock RT wing and I like the ES rims better than RT.

In the looks department your car blows away an RT. In the speed dept... ah it's only 20hp diff... that's not much.

I believe he has to repaint his hood anyways to fix the body damage. Seems like a good time to have it all done.

To be honest, you should try to make them functional....now that would be cool.

thanks

well thanks for the positive remarks and the negetive ones help too. those scoops will be put on with 3m tape and the hood will be repainted as well as the front nose peice, the fenders and the doors. id race a 1 gen lhs any day of the week and twice on sunday, my parents had a beige 94 lhs and it wasnt too bad but i would hesitate to race it lol. the car will also be sporting some 18 inch momos real soon so it should look sweet but i suppose certain people will have something negetive to say about it. as for engine mods im gonna go with some type of custom cold air set up, better plugs and wires and whatever else i can find so briing it on lhser lol.
