how are these fitting now a days? did they ever get the dimensions right and the scoops the right way? Im thinking about buying on when i get the FMIC installed. if it isnt right dimensions ill just go USDM alltrac Carbon Fiber Hood.

Vent is still about 1 1/2 smaller than original But it's still a lot lighter and the vent still lets heat out. You can check my profile or homepage I got some pics of it there.

Ihave the seibon, and love it. I believer both are the same Hood. Seibon makes around 90% of all Carbon Fiber hoods on the market, they just have a lot of distibutors under other names. I got mine from AFS Motorsports.

Due to it being woven shouldn't be much stress at all.
Nice Sig by the way
