I saw an SRT owner with one at the ledgewood meet here in Jersey. It was pretty sick.

I sorta remember that some people had issues with this hood at high speeds . Perhaps that issue was exaggerated , or fixed . That was years ago .

details on the issues?

also, any chance they may produce another set of them for a group buy? i'm sure there is some demand on some of the other srt boards as well.

cool looking hood for shows and whatnot, but unless you have a silver I think it looks a little strange, even painted.

Also, rainstorm = no no and have fun recleaning your engine every few days. I didn't notice a huge difference with high speed drag or whatnot, but it has been a few years since I had it. I think the holes are small enough that air at higher speeds just flows over them for the most part as if the hood was solid. The cooling factor was kind of nice though, I think my car idled maybe 10* cooler with the Grip hood on it.
