Something was missing....
I knew Black Betty was mean, 37s, supercharged, but I didnt get the "stop the presses" attention i thought she deserved.
Enter the RKsport Carbon Fiber Ram Air Hood.
1. Its their carbon fiber model, wich is good because you wouldnt paint it, and its marine carbon fiber so it wont yellow over time.
2. The look is very agressive. Makes the truck look like its snarling at you.
3. FUNCTION - this should probably number one. Its a ram air hood, so my RIPP supercharger breaths cold air while the channels inside the hood keep the air moving and water out of the engine bay.
Im very impressed with it so far. The packaging was the sprayed in foam, so it was locked in place, and the finish on the hood was fantastic.
The underside of the hood is fiberglass, so its very rigid, but not a whole lot lighter than the stock hood, about 8 lbs. Thats the cost of the excellent design.
Carbon Fiber hoods are really normally very light, but also flimsy. This is more of a carbon fiber shell top on top of the channel system thats made of fiberglass.
