    I'd go for it. As long as the 'glass will hold up to your driving style.

    I have always liked cowl hoods. Plus, this way you can run a taller air cleaner.

    Im going to get a steel cowl hood for mine when I get around to painting it. Of course, I have been accused of being bling from time to time. Check into if its the style that can use the stock hinge/springs. Some of them are bolt on, but you can only use a hinge without a spring, and then you have to use a prop rod. If you use the spring, you'll snap it in 2.

    I just bought a steel cowl hood for my sub to replace my hardwoods cowl hood that I have now. It cost me $65 to have the steel hood shipped cant believe it would be much more for a glass hood. has a few superfical cracks but passes the TFT (Ten Foot Test) you stand ten feet away and you cant see them. Make offer
