Just out of curiousity, how much does a regualr hood on an is 300 weigh. How much does a carbon fiber or KEVLAR hood weigh? I know it varies, but an approximation of what they weigh if the hoods are of the same styling will suffice, thanx.

carbon fiber weighs 20 lbs

Hey 187.
I know you're new...so here's some tips.

Try and post in the right forum. The hood topic should be in the inside/out forum rather than the go-fast. There are go-fast people and then there are inside/out people. Posting the hood thread in this forum is like going for the fergina but ending up in the ass. Some of the speed freaks won't necessarily have too much to offer for inside/out topics.

And for questions like the hood weight, it's likely that it's already been discussed in detail. It seems as if you searched and found the answer already. Next time, try searching if you think it's a topic that may have already been discussed.
CF hood roughly 9-15 lbs
Stock hood roughly 40-45 lbs





how's that for nice mofo's?
