thanks Dylan. Do the two scoops feed to one centerline section that leads to the airbox? Thanks for the pic but I am confused how the two hood scoops tie to the airbox. Thank you.

I have the cervini hood and LOVE IT. though i must admit it only looks good with some colors. I also put on a roush bumper at the same time to "balance out" the big scoop, it gave it a much cleaner look in my opinion. I opted to not get the flow kit with the it, and do slightly regret it. It seems to take in quite a bit of air and i think would work quite nice along side a CAI. the only concern is if it were to rain and one had that installed it would literally dump water right onto you CAI filter.

That's what I would worry about too. But my main question is this: If ram-air worked so well compared to just having the CAI underneath, wouldn't you think that it would require a re-tune? Taking in more air will require more fuel in order to maintain that crucial A/F ratio. When was the last time you heard someone get new tunes because of their brand new ram-air kit? In fact, there's no such option in Bama's tune/CAI list to call for an aftermarket hood. Taking that into account, I'd have to say that the ram-air kit just isn't worth it. Just my two cents.

Yeah, I too worry about water intrusion. Regarding if it's worth the money or not, I can buy a Trufiber hood with built in ram air for $419 + $150 (shipping) = $469 or the Cervini hood without the ram air kit from AM for $596 (which is $130 more and does not include the ram air kit).

Are there any other Trufiber hood owners out there? Any feedback about the product would be great. How much prep work was required prior to painting?
