It looks pretty nice, until you notice the screws on the vents. :redcard:

Wouldn't the fiberglass be heavier than the oem aluminum?

It would be heavier but I cant find a super snake hood available for the 2010, I did ask they are supposed to come out with carbon fiber inserts as I do not care for the chrome.

I'm not so sure about the vent screws either, but I imagine anybody willing to paint theirs to match wouldn't balk at filling the screw holes before painting the inserts and using an industrial adhesive to mount them. I suspect the design was made to accommodate the chrome inserts which may be more aesthetically consistent with contrasting screw heads. Lord knows people have done far less tasteful things to their Mustangs.

I otherwise like the look very much, particularly the forward aperture.

I will probably order one in the next couple weeks. I believe you can get the fiberglass vent and they don't come predrilled, so you can mount them how you want. I may get the Shelby heat extractors and graft them in. I personally think the flat vents are a little boring.

Thanks!

If the maker is advertising them for sale through eBay without actually being available - especially while explicitly advertising a 2-day fulfillment interval, it would be more than enough reason for me to be very leery of what may or may not actually arrive. Subjecting people to a $2,000 outlay that ultimately may not be fulfilled in a timely manner would be bad faith business - pure and simple.

Does anybody know with certainty if this seller is the actual manufacturer?

I have to admit to loving the name, however. It sounds like something straight out of a '70s porn movie.

Thanks! Definently a much more aggressive look than the stock hood and even easier to hear the supercharger whine ;)

Very nice. Although the lack of contrast makes it hard to tell in the image, is it the entire hood, or just the elevated scoop that's been added? Are you going to carry the OE stripe onto it?
