Carbon Fiber is AWESOME! I love it. Headers are good too. Do you notice any sound difference with them on?


Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

eyger i really didn't notice a sound difference since i got a loud ass exhaust now that theres no resonator grin as for roll edges? im not sure what your talking about, but the Hood is about 1/4 of the stock hoods weight, and it kinda feels like its gonna break but i slam it harder than stock since its so light and it does just fine.

I'm considering a VIS oem Hood as well. Yours looks nice - will you be getting Hood pins?

you need to slam your Carbon Fiber Hood? mine is VIS (the Invader style) and I just push it down gently and the latch clicks. haven't heard of anyone's VIS Hood coming off at highways speeds before either.

I got mine from IntenseMotorsport www.i-m-racing.com/celica
it came with the scoop and it was for 399, i waited about 2 1/2 weeks though and i had to jery rig my old rubber guard thingys on to the new Hood but they got in =), theres a latch on the Hood i really can't see this thing coming off on the highway since its just like the stock Hood with the bolts and latch, anyway stephen ya i tried softly putting it down and it doesn't go all the way lol, i gotta almost throw the thing since its so damn light. anyway i think this looks awesome on my car, and its gonna look good with my carbon fiber wing. Thanks for all your input guys. thumbsup
