You have to understand, this hood is all fiberglass and doesn't have the reinforcements on theunderside like the stock ones do. I THINK, not for sure, that it has the factory mounting holes but I definitely know that it does NOT have any place to fasten the stock hood latch. Thus, the need for hood pins. You definitely need the pins unless you want your hood to fly up whenever it catches a draft....

I got this information about 1 month ago when I Spoke to Eric in Erebuni. I don't know if the hood has changed since then. Good luck!

what...

Hey all, why is their that little hole on the top right side of the hood? Isn't that where the intake is on a civic or something like that? Is that hood just a modified hood from another import?
Just curious...

According to Erebuni, you do need hood pins but there are holes for the stock hinges in the rear. Check out superprobe's website and email Henry (the dude with the tricked out mx-6 under the fiberglass hood topic). He has a similar hood and probably knows the whole story.

Lastly, that hood costs a total $500 shipped so don't pay more!
