Group Buy For FUNCTIONAL RAM AIR Hood!!!
 
I know the Viper style hood is currently in the making. It looks really aggressive but not exactly what I'm looking for. What I'm looking for is a FUNCTIONAL RAM AIR HOOD (Charger SRT-8 style) that allows cool air from the outside channel to the open air box. Below are three links of the style hood that I have in mind.

If anyone looking for the same style hood and functionality then let me know. I want to write up a proposal to the three companies to get the hood produce :headbang::headbang:.

carhoods.com do the Viper style hoods which are functional.

They done one for the WJ which I was interested in but there were two problems, US shipping only and its no longer for sale...

No WK hoods either, but might be worth adding them to your contact list as I'm sure they could fabricate one.

CarHoods.com refused. I tried them already. They won't be doing a WK any time soon.

I've been working with Sarona lately. They're very willing, as long as you let them use your car and have a prototype for them to copy.

EDIT: Okay, looks like the reason CarHoods didn't wanna do it is because they're out of business. Their site is gone.

Probably not.

I'm working on a cowl and louver hood with Sarona. I've learned from the past that getting heat out does more good then a quasi Ram Air setup. Cooler components work better and last longer. Ram Air only works at high speeds and only if the box is sealed. Most "Ram Air" hoods are just Cool Air hoods, which does me no good since my IATs are normally only about 2-3 degrees over ambient.:thumbsup:
