Hi Guys!
We are happy to announce the start of a new Group Purchase on our products!

Unfortunately due to many price increases in raw materials, we will be forced to increase our prices within the next few months....this will be the last opportunity to jump on these prices.
Of course we still offer Group Purchases, but due to the pricing increases, the hoods will not have the same type of discount. We have been trying our best to hold off on price increases, but unfortunately with several increases over the last several weeks, we are no longer able to do so.

This GP will start today (6.25) and run until Tuesday (7.8).

No further discount applies to these prices EXCEPT you can earn your "Fiberbucks".
Our Fiberbuck program is a 5% discount you earn when you make a purchase through our NEW Performance shop. We offer name brand items at the lowest possible prices, Free Shipping (in most cases), hard to find items, and most items ship within 24 hours. :D And you will still receive our great customer service support.
The Fiberbuck amount will vary depending on your purchase - for example: a purchase of $300.00 in our Performance store will earn you an additional discount of $15.00 off our fiberglass parts and can be used IN ADDITION to the GP discounts below. Or if you like, you can redeem your Fiberbucks at a later time, you have a full year to use them!
So not only can you get the performance parts you need at the lowest possible prices, but you can earn additional savings on the fiberglass parts you want:D
One place to find everything. Finish your car up in 1/2 the time.
For our Performance Site: you can visit here: http://performance.vfnfiberglass.com/Shop/index.php
or pm me for pricing information or questions you may have.

The prices below do not include crating, shipping and tax (if applicable). Please pm me for information in regards to these costs with your location.
Most parts are made to order, and production times will run between 2-5 weeks depending on where you are in line on the Group Purchase.

If you don't see what you're looking for please pm me and I'll shoot you a price on it. All of our parts are on sale through this GP. :D

can I use stock hood struts on a 98-02 Sunoco bolt on hood and would it be cheaper to pick it up and pay sales tax or have it shipped to 61701?

Thanks!

1insanegto - We do have plans to produce a hood for the newer GTO's but unfortunately with so many projects going on at this time, we've been unable to set aside time to work on it. We are planning on making one, and will be working with Phantomzero on this project.

Sending out pm's - Thanks!

Hi Guys - Thanks for your interest!!

I unfortunately only have one picture of the wide sunoco mounted on a car at this time. I will find it this afternoon and get it posted - it was on the last gp we offered. It's a new hood, and we have only sold a very small handful, so I do not have a supply of customer pics at this point. The pic I do have is of the hood as it was initially mounted - it is not painted. It is only available on the lt1...I don't have any on the ls1 at this point.
The wide sunoco is similar to our extended version. We had many requests for the scoop that came on the extended without the additional height and with the option of the hood to bolt on. The "wide" version is the same width as the extended (28"), but instead of 6" in height, the height is 4 1/2, but at the crown (tallest portion of the scoop) it is 6".

I'll send everyone who requested a pm...and try to dig up those pics.
Thanks!
Jeanie

jeanie, your killing me, i really really want that ws9 outlaw hood!!!!

I almost got it the last GP, and i swore that i would get it on the next one.

Anyone with the ws9, do the heat extractors help??? i have some high under hood temps due to the procharger, and am curious if they actually help get rid of some of that heat??

Debating...

Hey Guys:D

ProjectCamaro, Pewter and AngryChicken - Thank you so much for the awesome feedback!! :cheers: Thank YOU!:headbang:

DcVingv6 - Sorry! Not trying to kill ya:jest: hmmm...decisions. decisions...just kidding :D

Chevyls1 - Turn around is 2-5 weeks depending on where you are in line. I'm very sorry, but we do not accept paypal at this time. We do however, accept all major credit/debit cards by phone, or if you prefer, you can mail in a check or money order. The extended hoods do go all the way back to the windshield (hood and scoop) - just please let us know if you have a stock or extended wheelbase - we now have 2 molds to accommodate both and eliminate most of the trim work on the stock sized version.

I know I might be a little late but I ordered a hood last week and never got to see this thread, If I did, I would have waited until now to order. Is it too late for me to get the discount since I am a LS1tech member? :)

Tim - Very sorry to hear that... I got your email, and responded - so we can see if we can't make you a happy customer.

Chevyls1 & Pippen - Thank YOU!!:cheers:

Tacklebox - got your pm and sent one back:D

NameSS - I am very sorry, but currently we do not have an Ultra Z in stock for immediate shipping. Normally our production time is 4-5 weeks for our normal customers, but with the gp, we are able to cut the production time down to 2-5 weeks depending on where you are in line and what hoods are on order.

Thanks!

Are you still not making carbon fiber hoods? Been waiting forever for them to come back.

vfntech
07-08-2008, 11:36 AM
Sounds Great - Z28 Thanks!!!

I'm sorry Alex...still no c/f at this point. The prices have come down a bit, but they are still extremely expensive to purchase...another problem we're running into now is our very swamped production area. We only have one guy who is trained to work with the c/f (these are much more difficult and longer to work with), and he also happens to be our Production guy, web guy, etc....with the amount of work we have in the back, unfortunately we are not able to start digging into c/f at this point as it will slow down our production.
What type of part are you interested in? Many times, upon request...we can cut down some of the weight of the fiberglass to get it as light as possible.

vfntech
07-09-2008, 11:12 AM
Hey Guys~

Alex - Generally on a bolt on hood, c/f will shave off around 8-10lbs from the fiberglass hood - so instead of 25lbs, it would be 15-17lb. We can still knock off some additional weight for you on the glass hood - and get it around 20 (or a little under), upon request. There is no additional charge for this option, so it would save you $$ as well over what it would have been in c/f.

Stealth - checked on your order. It should be ready for shipping either the end of this week or early next.:D

LT1Formula - lol. If I had a Camaro, I'd run a Sunoco too - or the 3" SS - we have the 3" SS on the hubby's truck and it looks awesome!

Jeanie my sunoco looks awesome right out of the box. My question is you posted awhile back that you guys beefed up the sunoco's hinge area so I should be ok with my stock struts? it's the Z28 stuts also don't know if that matters. If you can respond soon I would appreciate it before I mount it next week. Thanks Jeanie.

Hi Guys.
Sorry for the delay in responding...was out of the office on Friday.

Because of this, I can hold over the gp until today - if you haven't had a chance to jump on yet.

Blwn1 - I'll send you a pm in a few minutes:D

Z28/2002 - We can knock some weight off the pin on, but because they're pretty light to begin with, it wouldn't be as much as a bolt on...but give or take 3-5lbs.

02Beast - Thanks for your order! You should be okay running the stock shocks. We have beefed them up to accept them, and install them on customers hoods when we do an install here at the shop.
However, there has been a small handful of customers that I have heard from that were concerned about the tension on their factory shocks. Because of this, I recommend "feeling" out the shocks and if there is too much pressure, sometimes a small hole can be drilled into the shock to release some of the pressure.
There was a great article Pontiac Hi Performance did about our ws6 hood and covered the entire install - right down to the shocks, but they do not have it on their website...but it was from last months issue, if you can pick it up:D

3.8 - Thank YOU for both orders!! Awesome!

Chevyls1 - we generally call our customers when the order is complete. But I will also make a note on the order to send you a pm so you won't miss anything.

Thanks guys!!
Jeanie

Anything the same to the 98-02 SS hood but with very subtle rise? How much is stock and whats the least amount of rise in a similar hood?

vfntech
07-15-2008, 11:58 AM
Hi Guys~

Matt, just sent you a pm:D

99blanco - I am sorry but we do not offer a stock SS style hood. There are quite a few companies that do, we wanted something that was completely different...so we worked with members on the forum to design the 3" SS.

99blancoSS
07-15-2008, 12:10 PM
How much higher is the 3" from stock? tough to get a good profile comparison, its good a looking hood but I cant really tell how high it sticks up over my stock ss hood from the photos I've found.
