Default Alternative GTO Hoods

I'm looking to buy an aftermarket hood for my gto because I have the 5.7 hood. I like the 6.0 hood but I'm wondering what sort of other hoods there are for it.

If you like cowl hoods I know there is one out there but I forgot what company makes them. I'm not sure if they are a sponsor here, but check gravana tuning they have a bunch of different hoods listed there.

There are very few aftermarket hoods that look good for the GTO, imo. In fact, there's only one, the Banshee Hood.

On certain cars, I actually like the the '04 hood the most.

Gravana makes a stock looking 05/06 hood out of glass or c/f.
I like the dominant motorsports shaker hood.

MPD has the best looking hood out for the GTO IMO.



It has distinctly GTO throwback styling while blending in with the lines of the car. It visually balances out the factory spoiler nicely too. In fact I think it looks better than the hood GM came up with themselves. Having seen a few in person I can also attest that the quality is very good.

You can also get their airbox so the scoops on the hood feed the intake directly.

...not bad, but we all know that Gravana's Type-W is clearly the winner here!

just keep the one you have taylor. you got alot of other mods to get done before throwing on a new hood. besides, the 6.0 hood looks the best anyway lol

My car is in the process of having the dominant motorsports cowl hood installed. Really nice piece. Here's a pic from the gravana site. I'll post pics of my hood installed one I get my car back if anyone wants to see it.

I like the way that looks. Maybe just a little bit lower profile cowl. Are the pins part of the look or funtional and did the hood come that way?
Nevermid: I see the pins are gone in the store pic.

That DMS cowl-induction hood looks sweet, but hands down, the best looing hood IMO is the CF Banshee. That is why mine is on the way here now.
