hoods 101

you have several different types of hoods.

carbon fiber
kevlar
fiberglass
and metal

each has their own characteristics and pro's and con's.

this thread is to point out the majority of hoods and where to find them.




kaminari full and half carbon fiber

can be found at www.kaminari.com




wings west evo carbon fiber hood

can be found at www.namotorsports.net





vis invader carbon fiber hood

can be found at www.namotorsports.net for a great price






apc carbon fiber hoods

can be found pretty much anywhere... www.slickcar.com is a decent site



cervinis hood *also called the mach 5 hood

can be found at www.cervinis.com




ford primium fiberglass hood

can be found at www.focusperformance.com







if you have any qeustions at all, please feel free to ask. i will put some more when i find them, but some are hard to locate.. i know i am missing the cobra hood.. but havent found a decent website with it for sale.



i would also like to add that there are several different type of companies that make carbon fiber oem hoods. type in ford focus oem carbon fiber hoods in a google search and you shouldnt have a problem at all.

sure. i would also like to add that the SLP hood located in the last photo is a ram air hood, the scoop leads to your volant, or open filter.

And the mach 5 and kaminari arent "ram air". They just have open "slits". They dont lead to your filter.

Those are some crazy prices for any of those hoods! Sorry I don't I'll buy something like that for that price.
