hey guys,
i don't post much on the site (this is only my 2nd post), and haven't done any mods yet. But, I am looking forward to doing something that will look good and also help the car in terms of performance.
anyways....I was wondering if anyone knows how much a cf hood weighs, and how much the stock hood weighs, so that I can get an idea of how much weight i can save from the heavier nose of the IS.
i tried searching for the information already, but couldn't find the information.

thanx again for ur help! :D

There was a post on here last night about CF/Kevlar hoods with pics. I think the weights range from around 8 to 12 pounds. I think the CF/Kevlars were the lightest.

It helps to specify the thread where you think the info is. Also put your search words in and check the "all words" box.

You'll still get bad searches. I used "CF Hood" and nothing came up. Then when I used "Carbon Fiber Hood" I got a whole bunch of threads. Then you have go just kinda sort through the junk to find what you want. In this case I aleady knew what thread to search for. Searching is a trial and error, hit and miss deal.
