    If you can isolate the intake air from under hood air, IMHO, heat extraction becomes less of an issue especially with the StealthV tune.

    But at this point I'd be happy with the STS-V look. For my taste our hood is too flat.

    I like the STS-V hood also. It would be realy hard not to get one if it were available.

    Its fiberglass. CF is too expensive. Any ideas on height? 2.0"? This is the outfit.

    CF is also totally unnecessary for a street application, IMHO. Weight savings minimal, and increase in strength not necessary witht he right FG layup. Besides, anymore CF seems a little too much like chinese take out (rice?)

    just checking to see if i can lose any more weight in my car without going through the rip sound dampening material, carpet, dash, passenger seats...

    I figured fiber glass is not that much heavier than cf.

    Re: CTS-CTS-V Hood

    I like the cowl & the one that on the stang, that extractor looks like it would move some heat,,

    Lastss, can they make one like that for a V with a maggie? maybe slightly raised in the middle, with the two extractors like on that GT or cobra? like this one, but i would go with slightly smaller extractors not much smallerbut enuff rrom in order to give more of a raised look or cowl in the middle to windshield?

    later blitzer

    Re: CTS-CTS-V Hood

    one problem that I see is that a cowl induction takes advantage of the high pressure area at the base of the windshield. if you are thinking aboout using a cowl hood to vent hot underhood air , you would be doing the oposite. the base of the windshield is a high pressuer area. the low pressure used to "suck" the hot under hood air would be the center part of the hood. look at the road race hoods such as the CTS-V race car. if the windshield was the low pressure area it would make for a much cleaner design, but it is not. Cowl induction hoods are used in drag racing and the carb is sealed to the hood because it provised high pressure to the carb. NASCAR also uses the cowl to seal the carbs to because of teh high pressure. if you are looking to vent hot underhood air, you are looking in the wrong spot.

    For heat extraction from the front exchangers; the deeper the better. Take the hood off the V, place a 1" layer of foam over the Maggied engine compartment. Cover with a fiberglass sheet; apply the resin and lift off the buck.
