    OK, Added some pics of the engine bay & meth injection in the spare tire area, But don't expect to much cause it's still dirty, haven't had time or weather to do any cleaning lately.

    Good use of AN lines. I may have to bite that style, though I think anodized black will be a better fit for my raven..

    That is just the greatest thing ever. Someday I dream of having the bankroll to do something similar myself

    Does anyone know what the weight savings of the EC hood is over stock? Thanks

    I knew you could take it. And since you have the ultimate in V badassery, you need a little ribbing now and then...

    I am fairly certain that all of the aftermarket hoods actually weigh more than the stock hood (stock is very light - aluminum). The only aftermarket hood that might be lighter than stock would be the Carbon Fiber Spectre Werkes Power Dome.

    Don't recall E/C or anyone saying they were lighter than the OEM Aluminum hood. But I would find it hard to believe the fiberglass is lighter than the stock aluminum one just by handling them.
    Of course I deleted the windshield washer nozzles, Maybe that will make it lighter "LoL"

    LOVE your hood rlj5, How has it been holding up over the time? I am getting ready to paint my V next month and I am thinking of changing the hoods prior to doing so.. Also did the hood come pre cut for your washer nozzles and you just didn't want to use them?
