2005-'08 C6 Corvette Hood with Functional Scoop

Monday, February 11, 2008 - 00:00
Toms River, NJ — SLP now offers an all-new C6 composite hood with functional scoop to fit 2005-08 Corvettes. This OEM quality C6 hood is manufactured using the same RTM process that SLP used when manufacturing over 52,000 hoods for the Camaro SS, Firehawk and WS-6 specialty vehicles for GM and its dealers.

This aggressive, functional hood will set your Corvette apart from the rest. The hood is designed to force cold fresh air into the engine compartment, forcing out hot under-hood air. Manufactured using an OEM-quality resin transfer molding (RTM) process, providing a stronger, more durable hood.

An internal water control system is built in to the hood, preventing rain and snow from getting onto critical engine components. OEM-style crush initiators are also molded into the hood, typically not found in aftermarket fiberglass hoods.

The hood is shipped ready to prep, prime and paint. All necessary hardware, detailed instructions and a serial numbered authenticity plate are included.

In the near future, we'll have this hood design available in aircraft quality Carbon Fiber material that is half the weight of our composite hood that weighs the same as the stock hood.

OEM styling, safety and performance benefits typically not found in aftermarket fiberglass hoods

OEM style molded-in crush initiators
