I know the interest is for the 00-04 Mk1, but I'm sure this may work on the Mk3 with the a majority of the intake kits for the Mk3 being short ram intake.

Dang, you would think that over the course of 3+ years something would have come through the pipeline by now. How much "interest" do the head honchos over @ ED need to get this thing pushed past the possibility of development phase and in to the R&D phase? You would think that the # of people that CRAVE a FC hood or even something very similar would be more than the # of people that are interested in a RS knock-off front bumper like the F-sport, especially if it has NO fitment issues.

Any way we could find out if this is farther along in the pipeline than just consideration. Even if it in the R&D phase, it can't be very hard to mock up a hood with a NACA duct molded in.

make one yourself. pick up a junk yard hood for $30 and start cutting. if you mess up then pick another spot on the hood and try again and repeat till you get it right and then try it on either another junk yard hood or the hood on your car. bondo it in and paint it. you might end up with $300 total wrapped up in your custom hood including paint.

i had alot of interest in ED doing this too but i waited so long that i went another way. screw them, make your own, which isnt terribly hard, or go another route

The RS bumper was doomed for failure. I think it had to do with the mold they used. They did not create their own mold of the RS bumper and instead used some other mold (an old RS mold maybe, I can't remember so don't go quoting me on that). The end result of products made with bad molds are bad products. From what I hear it takes a lot of modifications to make it fit right, and even then the duraflex exhibits a want to crack.
Provided ED were to get a hold of a still decent condition hood and make a quality mold from it, there is hope that the resultant product will be just as good as the original FC hood.

As for interest in an FC hood from ED, I still have the interest in it; although my interest IS waning. I understand people leave jobs and people that take over might not fully understand everything behind certain things, you would think that it would still be worthwhile for ED to give this one a shot. If I were the yes man at ED, I would green light it. However I would price it so that if they only made a limited run of say 25 they could at least recoup the costs of r&d, anything past that is profit. Alas I am not the green light man at ED, and alas this hood will probably never be made.
