Hey everyone. I know of a company that will make a good carbon fiber hood for us that will only be 400 bucks. All we need is 10 people that would buy these hoods. I am deffinatly in...all we need is 9 more people.
How much lighter is it than the stock hood?
Will the stock hinges and latches work?
Does it come primered for paint?
Do they guarantee fit, or warping? For how long?
What is the shipping cost?
If Im gonna get a custom hood, I want a scoop and/or
cosworth type vents in it like Ashley's for getting rid of some of that heat.
I can answer the weight question. Its probably going to be at least 50lbs lighter then the stock hood. I would like to add If we can't get a scoop some other form of airflow over the factory intake area. Heh this is going to be so cool.
Remember, this isn't the actual bulk buy, this is to see how many people will be interested in this hood. I am still waiting for them to reply to my email. If everyone can, email me ( [email protected] )pics of what they would want then we will all vote when we have 10 people. Then we will have the hood, it would be nice to have something made for the 1st gen mx6. For those that think they will get this hood after the bulk buy is done, good luck, its probably going to be a 1 time pressing. Even if you can buy them without the bulk buy, it wont be $400.
A hood like that pic would be very nice. I like the idea of cooling the TB and intake with fresh air. With the turbo already in front of the car, I doubt that there is much that could be done to cool it anymore.
