    Gotta be the STS V hood - all the way...That was the first thing i noticed about that car...and the only reason I like it's styling better than our cts'.

    Re: CTS-CTS-V Hood

    Well,lets see what we get for response. Im thinking STS cowl induction hood. Two versions. One for the six banger and one for the V. Top is the same with a different underside. If you look at the lightning hood underside they have a very nice underhood duct set up that would mate with a Stealth designed airbox. ( I have volunteered him, he hasnt accepted)

    Re: CTS-CTS-V Hood

    I posted this in the CTS forums but i figured i'd post it here to since someone wanted to see a chop...i just started messing with Paint Shop Pro like a week ago so its not that great. And it started as a base CTS in the color iam getting.

    I've got a maggie, and I apologize if this comes out sounding selfish, but I am not doing this for purely aesthetic/esthetic value. I am attempting to keep the engine as cool as possible. Maybe we need to consider more than one hood type from the selected vendor, as I am sure the GB members will be varied in what they hope to accomplish. Just my .02

    I have the maggie, a cowl hood will create more air space above the engine, also I am sure that it can be contoured to let air go thru the grill and exit at the base of the windshield or vent at the rear top of the cowl hood. I will discuss with the manufacturer next week. Also///
    Im looking at a price point of $700. In the realm of reality for a hood.

    Re: CTS-CTS-V Hood

    A cowl hood would actually push air into the engine compartment from the back of the hood at the base of the windshield. That is how they work. There is quite a bit of pressure there at speed.

    I don't think so much air space as opposed to air flow.
    Especially when the car is sitting even after the fans shut off.
    However, the fan mod with any hood that can help dump the hot air is good.
    I am not into a raised hood, but if it is the "only way to go" as it is with the Vette then no brainer.

    Re: CTS-CTS-V Hood

    Here is a sketch. It might be possible to change from cowl induction to extraction by having a surface vent that bypasses between the two. Pressure at the base of the glass is high, that is correct. But if we top vent at a standstill and cowl/ram under throttle (can be done by manifold vacuum) it could work.

    Re: CTS-CTS-V Hood

    love it...that would work on the V6 CTS too since the box is in the same spot. I REALLLLLY hope this gets done. Might take me till the end of next month to have the money but i'd be in for sure.

    Now you have a business plan. You should capitalize on your idea because it is a good one. Lastss Cowl induction Heat extraction Hoods. Pat pending.
