Default Teaser!!! 25mm raised cowl C7Z hood with side vents. 90% done!!

Solution for the heat problem and litmited cowl space for Whipple 2.9 or TSV2650.

Introduction Pricing is a go!
Price is set for $2000 shipped for Fiberglass, jell coated gloss black or white. $2700 shipped for carbon for the 48 States, carbon underside will be 700 extra.

06/07/18

Color matched hood win cowl left exposed.






03/09/18
3rd hood installed!! Side by side with mine.

View from the cabin, Driver POV, as requested.












Carbon Kevlar hood on! For the Yellow Z06s out there







01/10/18 Update
So here is the installed product. Still designing the optional split grill carbon add on piece to cover up the center radiator duct, for those that don’t want a large opening. This hood is good to go though. Even drove it in crazy SoCal storm from my manufacture shop home and it was good to go in the rain. All vent and ducts are for maximum heat extraction with minimal water exposure to the engine bay.

















01/14/18 update
Side by side with stock Z06 hood for comparison.

It looks good ! Are you putting some kind of leuver in the big opening (1) to split that up a bit and personally for me I think going with 2 side vents (remove forward one) wouldn't make it look as busy, but overall very nice job, congrats on your work.

Very SRT-ish, which is not a bad thing.

With the height of that hood would the Callaway supercharger fit under that hood?

1, the highlighted red part in the first pic is will be the bolt on vent to split up the huge radiator opening. Some mesh grill there go stop large objects from falling in too.

2. Passed on the info to my maker. Should be doable.

I donít see why not. This is 25mm higher than standard Z06 hood and the Callaway barely sticks out of the stock hood.

I think you will have a market for these, functionalable with a bit of flair and not over the top, good job !

Thanks the plan. Carbon, partial carbon, and fiberglass will all be available.

Talking over to have only two vents in each side, the car can use some extra heat extraction (especially right above the headers)

Two vents per side would look better - and angle them a bit.

Didnít use it. Removing the under cover plus 25mm more in height should be plenty for Whipple 2.9 or TSV 2650

Hood is stock Z06 chopped up for a mould. Underside will be like stock.

Yes hood is fragile because of all the bonding and cutting. So we are making one as is first. Revision can be made on the more solid new hood.
