Fiberglass hoods are "thicker" than Factory Hoods, it may be necessary to adjust all rubber stoppers. Some may need to be trimmed or removed completely. FRP Hoods are stiffer than factory steel/aluminum hoods, which factory hoods can actually twist to follow the fender line, even if one fender is lower than the other. Fender alignment may need to be adjusted for proper alignment.
Type-E functional ram air hood for Chevrolet Silverado 2500 is a perfect replacement for the ordinary factory hood. Direct cold intake air to work with performance air intake systems by major manufacturers such as Air Raid and K&N. Also features two vented heat extractor vents to draw hot air from the engine bay. AmeriHood utilized factory hinges and striker for easier installation, a smooth gel coat finishes on top and underside for easy prep, and shorten work time for that perfect finish.
A few of the benefits of aftermarket fiberglass hoods are that they are lightweight and allow you to alter the look of your vehicle without investing in high paint and labor costs. Some of the more popular styles of fiberglass hoods also offer improved engine cooling thanks to strategically placed vents that will either vent cool air to the engine bay or extract hot air out of the engine bay. Some applications actually direct cold air directly to the air intake system in a ram air or shaker-style hood.
