Does ford have the new KR hood available yet. What is it made of? and of course anyone got a price?? I've see a fiberglass hood, but i don't think it was OEM.

The real KR hood is carbon fibre. The cost is supposed to be around 8 grand I believe.

That makes the KR hood very valuable for a simple bolt on item. Another reason to not leave one unattended.
That hood could be off like a Prom dress.

I don't believe the carbon fiber KR hood will be for sale from Ford or SAI.
yep - that's what Amy (SAI Prez) posted. something about "never", but we know "never" isn't as long as it used to be. :rolleyes:

Ahh... off faster than a prom dress... Next they'll be selling hood-lock bolts with a special design cut into the bolt head....

Speaking of Carbon Fiber, Fiberglass, and Aluminum - how much does each hood weigh? I understand Carbon fiber is probably the lightest, followed by aluminum, then FIberglass would be what I expect. Difference has got to be neglibile (no more than 20 pounds variance ??)

What's a flywheel damper ?::p
You know what I meant. I've called it that all along, pretty much knowing it was wrong. What does the "unofficial" engine book call it?
