Drove to the dealership and got my hood swapped out!! They did a fantastic job, color matches perfect. I'm loving it.

Just need to decide to keep or take off the under padding (they forgot that I asked them to not reinstall, but it's on there..). Will prob take it off and need to install rubber bumpers for where the ducts touch the engine cover.

I'm pumped. :banana:

Catch can ordered yesterday and I should be done modding.:D

Thanks to all that helped talk me into it and for answering q's.

Hood was $750 off Craigslist (used OEM one)

Prep, painting (both sides), and reinstall was $350 plus tax.. they listed it as $250 labor, $100 supplies. They filled a few rock chips as well.

Thanks for the comments everyone.. It may not be faster, but for some reason it feels faster.. and in the short time I've driven it, I seem to get more heads swinging.

I've been watching the "agenda" and this week was Bike night, not really my thing. I'll have to see what's up this week.. keep me posted if you're headed there.

As for Nat's, I'll be golfing in PA all weekend (and drive right by..). Bummed I'll miss it, but I'll still be having fun.

Catch can shipped. We'll get that in soon as well.

TTL,

JK

Not happening.. Helps to protect the doors in the garage (if you accidentally tap the wall).. and other door dings (not that it hasn't been discussed before..lol) Plus it's a matter of personal choice.

But thanks for the suggestion!
