Why Our Hoods Are Superior :
We use a process called Vacuum Infusion with a closed molding process, consisting of a male mold and a female mold. We also use better resin called Vinylester Resin. With this process, all air is vacuumed out of the mold and the resin is pulled through the mold cavity and through the infusion matt fiberglass. As this occurs, all air and air bubbles are drawn out of the mold, leaving no voids that later expand called soft spots. As the part is drawing the resin in, it also compresses the mold, producing a very uniform and consistent part in thickness.
Our competitors make their hoods using a single-sided mold with inexpensive polyester resin and cheap fiberglass. They roll out the air bubbles with paint rollers by hand. This method makes for many air voids and uneven thickness, which leads to blisters or bubbles under the paint and warping as the part is exposed to the elements over time.
How Do Functional Ram Air Hoods Work And Add Performance? :
A Ram Air Intake is an intake design which uses the dynamic air pressure, created by vehicle motion, to increase the static air pressure, inside of the intake manifold, on an internal combustion engine. This allows for greater force through the engine and increases engine power. At higher road speeds, a Ram Air Intake can increase the speed and pressure of the air entering the engine's intake, creating a resonance supercharging effect.
With our Functional Ram Air Hoods, air is forced into the hood scoops and channeled through the hood. The air then exits the hood directly above the air box, injecting fresh cold air. When utilizing a cold air intake, the intake will receive the cold air to increase horsepower, and also produce a higher quality, aggressive engine sound.
PLEASE NOTE : Do NOT guess your paint color! The only accurate way to obtain the correct color is to get your paint code from your vehicle. Some paint codes have multiple names, but the code is always the same. CLICK HERE to find your vehicle's paint code. Unsure of your paint code? Call the parts department at any dealership relating to your vehicle (If you have a Ford, call a Ford dealership) and give them your VIN#. They will be able to tell you the correct color code once they look up your VIN#. Alternatively, you can enter "Gloss Black" into the paint code box for a high-gloss black finish, or enter "Matte Black" into the paint code box for a flat black finish.
COLD AIR INTAKE INQUIRIES : For added performance and horsepower, we recommend using a cold air intake. We recommend S&B Filters part number 75-5085, which is available for the 6.7L Power Stroke models, and will provide a 47.62% airflow improvement. At this time, we do not sell this cold air intake, you would need to purchase it separately from their website. Cold air intakes are illegal to purchase in the State of California, and may not be street legal in your state. Cold air intakes will only work with this Ram Air Hood if you have the 2017 - 2019 Diesel Models. For any other engine type, the cold air intake will not line up with the cutout on the underside of this Ram Air Hood. We apologize about this inconvenience!
