    I drive it in the winter, but not so much when it snows. The car does sit in a garage for a lot of the winter. I will drive the Tahoe in the winter most likely. Probably not a great hood for a 24/7 outdoor car.

    It's fine in rain. I've left it out in rain quite a bit. The only thing that gets wet is the intake tube really. The rest drips right out the bottom. Keep in mind I do not have the waterboxes though either. You can get those for a cool 400 dollars more from Spectre. I said no thanks.

    Dang, I don't think I had to pay any extra for the water boxes...and I got a free upgrade to the carbon fiber version (either by mistake, or because the hood took 2 weeks longer to make than was explicitly promised to me and they felt bad, I don't know for sure). I about crapped my knickers when I finally realized that I did indeed have a cf hood and not the heavy fiberglass version.

    I wonder what the weight difference is?

    I don't know...but the cf heat extractor absolutely feels lighter than the extremely light stock aluminum hood. I bet the whole thing is only 15-20 lbs.

    I have the "heavy fiberglass one" and I don't think it's that much heavier than stock. Maybe a few pounds? I've had them side by side. I think it's safe to say it's negligible. The fact that you got a CF one for the price of a fiberglass one is pretty awesome though

    Spectre Werkes went out of business about 18 months ago. And the Extreme Composites hood weighs 26 lbs, versus the stock hood @ 23 lbs.

    Fuzzy is right, I opted for the Extreme Composites (EC) hood and I couldn't be happier with the quality. As many of you techs know, aftermarket fiberglass body panels are a crap shoot and almost always NEVER fit properly. The EC hood that I ordered, arrived in quick time (although FedEx put a small crack in the center of the hood, which was paid for by them ) It was a toss up between SW and EC, but either way I love both looks, nice job!!!

    I've seen the extreme composite just looking for something without a cowl, because in the pics it looks like a fairly large cowl( not a mammoth but noticeable. Im looking for something as close to stock with heat extractor vents

    Hmm, the cowl on the EC is definitely noticable, but I beleive it's 1.5-2" high, nothing too crazy. You may want to go with the SW hood instead.
