This new hood is full Ram Air functional when used with the optional air box. It is constructed from hand-laid fiberglass and high quality "ISO" resin. The hood comes in a white gelcoat ready to be prepped, primed and painted from us. Also included is a black metal mesh vent grille. If you would like the Each hood comes with a one year warranty.
Our ram air hoods are constructed of hand-laid fiberglass, using high quality "ISO resin" to give you the best possible quality in a fiberglass hood. It comes with a smooth gel-coat finish, on both top and underside surfaces.
All hinge and latch mountings are reinforced with steel plates. All bolt holes are pre-drilled and tapped for easy installation. To install these hoods, all you need to do is transfer your stock hardware onto it and bolt it on to the factory hinges for final alignment.
ISO resins are a higher quality, low shrink resin that allows the part to withstand more heat and prevent distortion.
The Power Hood ram air system is like no other. It is a true ram air hood system that force feeds cold air into the engine?s intake through the hood vents. The Power Hood ram air system forcefully delivers more cold air to the engine which produces more horsepower, and in turn delivers greater fuel efficiency than a simple cold air intake.
With the Power Hood ram air system, the hood intake system forces cold air into the throttle body under pressure through a completely sealed system. With this system, your engine builds more HP the faster you go. The faster you go, the more pressure you build into the system. You will see the most power gain starting at around 50mph. The Ram Air Power Hood is a sealed system that delivers pressurized cold air. Air is denser when cooled, which means more oxygen is available for combustion in the engine. Better combustion means more power.
Most aftermarket hoods feed into a standard aftermarket cold air intake off to the side of the fender. These systems are not pressurized. The standard cold air intake is open to the fender housing which allows any air pressure from the hood to be forced out at the fender and not into the intake. Under those conditions, the engine has to work harder to passively suck in the air. The Ram Air Power Hood system forces the air into the intake and takes the work off the engine. As a direct result of receiving the pressurized cold air, this allows your engine to build more horsepower and increase fuel efficiency. A larger supply of cold air forced into the engine when the throttle is open increases power and improves throttle response.
To compare the different air intake systems, you might compare:
A: A stock factory air intake to drinking a liquid from a glass through a small straw (very restrictive).
B: An aftermarket cold air system to drinking from a glass through a larger straw (less restrictive).
C: The power hood system to drinking straight from the glass with no straw (not restrictive at all)
D: Pours the air into the intake with no restriction while the other two suck it in.
