it shouldnt matter on what hood you use since you have a fmic....i think the only mod you have to do with that is the bumper reinforcement..

i know about the bumper but the gt4 hood is much higher in the middle. has anybody tried it yet.

the only reason its higher is because of the factory top mount intercooler...

you can swap the front body parts between models.

If you have the Alltrac hood you should use it. It allows heat to escape through the two vents on the side as presure increases as you drive or while the sits. If you don't like the hood scoop why not get try an RC hood?

Get a new alltrac hood or RC hood, because of the boner-factor.

Yeah he had. The fiberimages cf rc hood only made like 10 total hoods. Then the company stoped makin them and never gave the one who funded the project the mold back

that sucks. Glad to hear you are going to stick it out and resurrect her though.

What caused the break in the fuel line? an you share so none of us experience this problem also

just dont ever use rubber lines. no matter how good review they got they're still rubber.

also instal shut off switches on on all fuel lines. i had fuel line in but the return line didn't have anything on it.
i had my battery shut off as soon as i saw the fire and 20 min later when fireman cut off the return line and the fuel was still coming out.
fuel kept feeding the fire. if not for that the fire would have never been so bad.
