I have the BRS Hood on my Celi and the only Mod I had to do was bend the Hood latch a little bit so it would sit correctely. Other than that it fit perfect..

Yeah VIS is crap "imo" the fit to the fender's was off, And the inside of it rubbed on the valve cover and the throttle linkage. Not to mention the Hood latch was extremely weak (it flew up on my buddy's car).

Oh I will give the VIS raised hoodscoop a thumbsup though. Fiber image makes a really nice Hood but I'm not to happy with thier hoodscoop.

CID, did your friend buy it a while ago? It seems like people with bad fit bought them a while ago and the ones who have purchased VIS hoods more recently are happy with the fit (take the case of mukalicious, for example).

I just got my VIS Invader Hood over the weekend and I love the way it looks. Fit right over the latch. Minor problem, was that it is slightly shifted to the right, which I tried to pull the left with no luck, but it is hardly noticable. No1, except for me, seems to notice.
