Ok im looking for a new hood for my 02 grand am gt. I would like to go with a carbon fiber hood but i donít exactly know were to find one. So does anyone know were i could find a good carbon fiber hood.

Also im just curious would a carbon fiber hood look good on an all black car?

Thanks thats allot nicer than the hoods i was finding.

And i have one more question how strong would a carbon fiber hood be? Im wondering because the reason i need a new hood in the first place is because someone jumped on mine in the school parking lot.

That hood from cerious hasnt been available for a loooong time. Theres only the oem style and the one with the small scoop from zspec. You can buy the jsp one from andysautosport.com as well.

Ok I think im going to go with the jsp hood but im wondering if i got the jsp hood with the drivers side scoop would their be some kind of intake i could install that would take in air from the scoop. Also if i did add some kind of intake like that would it be effective performance wise?

You could make a box that seals off from the engine bay but will let in air from the scoop. I couldnt see it being any more effective than just a cold air intake.

The only thing any hood is going to do performance wise is help dissipate heat. The scoops would have to stick up around 5-6 inches to start getting some air down into the engine bay.

Ok I have another question does anyone have the carbon fiber jsp hood and if you do does this hood fit good? Are their any problems i might have installing it?

Also i would need hood pins right?

i recently had the carbon fiber with scoop on it. some fit perfect some dont. when i got mine i had to do some mods to it like move my fender in a little and move my hood latch down to make it fit perfect. for the price its a nice hood.
