Go for it! Ive just heard people were disappointed with the size of the vents compared to OEM.

I saw a seibon All-Trac hood and omg it sucked, it weighed the same as the all-trac hood did too so I dont see why you would get it other than you like the ricer look.

It shouldn't wiegh the same, unless they paint it CF.

They don't weight the same. Seibon is still fiberglass with a CF coat, it's not as light as pure carbon, but it'll be lighter than stock by at least a few pounds i'm sure.

You would be better off to buy the pure CF peice.

Ya, but they dont make a CS hood. They make the A/T hood which doesnt look bad IMO

Yeah, but you might want to note that the idiots put in the vent backwards in the VIS version.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v440/Playfortoday/Emoticons/aaatooth.gif

What suprised me was how much lighter the 6g GT4 hood is than the stock one. Craziness.

Dude, look closely at the picture in the link he posted to the VIS hood. That is why no alltrac guys jumped on it like four years ago. Apparently they never corrected their error.

looks like the 2 side vents are the issue play? one going toward the back, the other toward the front?

Holy shit balls. The side fins point forward just like the scoop does. They collect air rather than relieve pressure like they were designed to do.

... it's the same hood... just black... and a few lbs lighter. Not the same topic as a functional hood that has induction and ventilation for a top mount intercooler.

The only decent CF hood is a painted CF hood. FnF is over y0.
