After the first TS was damaged during shipment, the second one, weeks later made it to it's new home. I adjusted the latch and and ran it up to 105mph and it never wobbled, but I guess the vented ones don't have that much turbulence.

Thanks, Seibon uses one sheet to do the entire hood, an oem type latch bar, and a support skeleton. My black tail lights are supposed to be here by Friday.

Yup our hood rocks man, I have got mine up to 118 and it didnt wooble either.
I stopped at 105 because I'm on Essenzas (Goodyear made) tires that came with my wheels, and they aren't rated for what I used to do on my last tires. Maybe you can enlighten me. I guess I was misinformed, but I was told that the TS had vent hole caps/covers you could remove? Mine just has mesh.

how hard was the install? Did you run into any problems after you finally got it?

How much for the cowl hood and how did it turn out? is it nice and straight?
It's straight, and turned out fine. Left it black primer. Was supposed to get $250 for it. I'll let any of the track nuts have it for $150 just to get it out of the garage. 3" rise. I mounted it the right way; one layer of glass between the scoop and the hood, extra rivets all the way around, molded with fiberglass, and very, very little bondo so it won't crack.

I had filed and dremeled the bottom of the 4 holes in the latch to slide it up high enough to secure it tightly w/o stressing the hood. I'm using one stock hood shock for now until I replace them with 15-20lb shocks. That's about it.
