Cowl hood materials
Carbon fiber hoods
This is a very hot item. Carbon fiber hoods are very lightweight, which helps in balancing out the weight of the entire vehicle and may even aid in boosting gas mileage. Carbon fiber hoods can also be easily painted, allowing you to enhance your ride's style even further. Carbon fiber is very durable and is actually the preferred material for aftermarket hoods. We recommend you get this material for its durability and budget0friendly price.
If your main concern is durability, then get a steel cowl hood. This hood material is by far the strongest. The downside, though, is that can weigh your ride down because they're very heavy. In addition to that, they're pricier and rather difficult to install. So don't buy this type unless you're willing to spend extra and put in more work to mount it.

The benefit of scoops is that they allow more air to enter the engine bay, which is sure to keep it cool. Fiberglass hood are also very easy to modify and are very light-in-weight. This is another recommended material that offers plenty of styling options.
