I want a hood that doesn't melt in the Texas heat. I'm currently looking into having one fabricated out of aluminum because the carbon fiber and fiberglass hoods just don't handle the extreme heat here. The estimate for having one fabricated is $3000-$5000...ouch!

My hood is fiberglass but they make it in carbon fiber too. I've done some research and neither material does extreme heat well. I really love my hood but it is fluctuating with the heat so I'm looking for a long term solution. So the aluminum hood would take care of that problem without adding a lot of weight.
I want the hood to look exactly like the one I already have but the fabricator wants to design a one-of-a-kind for me. Decisions, decisions...

not that I have a supercharger yet....but how about a boost gauge that fits into the console gauge pack? or a cool looking gauge pod that fits where the center speaker is in the dash?

Items for the Synergy Editions. Maybe emblems, name plates, and etc. Also would like to see kit for ambit led pipe for the dash. Like on the doors.
