I don't know. Adding a WS6 hood to a V6 is kinda rice. Enjoy the car as it is, don't try to make it look like something it's not.

When I bought my Vette, the previous owner had made mods, like air intake, exhaust, headers, etc..., and he put an LT4 decal on the car. It may have had extra HP, but it was no LT4. I don't understand that. I took it off as soon as I could.

Just my opinion, but dressing up a V6 to be a WS6 is kinda silly.

Otherwise, that's a good price, and a really good looking car. That would be a good car to have.

idk but i cant see the link.

but im guessing u have a bird n u want to put a ws6 hood on it.
and no offense, to the guy under me but theres nothing wrong with that.
it prob wont happen anymore bc of my situation but i planned on putting the ws6 hood on my car and the trans am spoiler on it as well. it just looks tons better.
but seriously, thats not rice. its perfectly fine.
its not like hes putting ws6 badges on it or like mustang fags who put cobra badges on a v6. he likes the hood bc it looks nice. and its very common.

But correct me if I'm wrong, but it's adding features that don't make a difference. That's how people have defined Rice. Does the WS6 hood have functionality on the factory car?

I guess rice isn't really if you add parts that are stock on one version of a model to another version of the model. The rear spoiler I can see, but the WS6 hood, I don't know. But, to each his own. I certainly don't have the best taste in the world, other than thinking the Camaro is the best thing since sliced bread.

ok, ws6 hood serves basically no purpose. its all for looks anyways.
and rice is, to me, is absurd cosmetic modding.
so is everryone who buys an ss spoiler for their z28s because it looks good considered rice? ur making it something its not. in my opinion, no.

Quoting myself again. I said the spoiler I could understand.

The hood, though, looks like it has intakes for something under the hood that is not on the regular cars. I was asking if it was or not, I don't know. Only seen one WS6 and they didn't raise the hood. If it's only for looks on the WS6, then I say sure, throw it on any other model you want.

it looks like a nice car...I say go for it.

I don't have a problem with putting a WS6 hood on it...I think they look cool. I don't think it's "rice"...it serves as much purpose as any other body mod. Personally though, I think if you plan on buying a 5th gen anyway, I'd save the money towards that and not spend it on a hood (or any other mods) on this one...you wont get that $$ back. If you need a DD car, just buy it, drive it and take care of it.

yes, but add in paint and prep...it adds up. Unless you can find a used one in the same color.
