FAQ's about RK SPORT Hoods

CAN I ORDER MY HOOD ALREADY PAINTED? RKSport does not offer paint services. We have found over the years that it is better to ship the hood 'paint ready'. This eliminates the possibility of paint damage during shipping and also allows you to pre-fit the hood prior to painting, which reduces the likelihood of scratching or marring the hood during final installation.

DO THE HOODS SHIP READY TO PAINT? The hood will arrive sealed in a premium quality, gray, gel coat. We recommend some sanding and possible finishing prior to applying primer and paint. Click HERE for detailed paint recommendations on all RKSport fiberglass hoods.

ARE THE HOODS DIFFICULT TO INSTALL? RKSport makes it easy! Disconnect the struts and wiper tubing. Unbolt the hood from the hinges and remove the hood from the vehicle. Remove all stock hardware from the stock hood and re-install onto the RKSport Hood. You vehicle has multiple adjustment points to assure a perfect fit. We strongly recommend pre-fitting your new hood prior to painting. This will greatly reduce the chance of marring the hood once it is painted.

WILL WATER GET INTO THE ENGINE THROUGH THE RAM AIR SCOOP? RKSport has developed an effective water management system for all our Ram Air and Heat Extractor hoods that prevents any water that enters the scoop from making it to the intake. The water is ultimately directed to weep holes where the water exits the hood away from your vehicle's intake and engine.

DO THE CARBON FIBER HOODS NEED TO BE CLEAR COATED? Our carbon fiber hoods ship ready to install, no painting required. We finish them in a marine grade, clear gel coat for superior gloss, depth and UV protection. Some customers choose to add an automotive clear coat to our finish for additional depth and gloss but it is not necessary from a protection point of view. The Carbon Fiber Hood is more expensive than the fiberglass version but since it does not need to be painted, the money you save on the paint job significantly minimizes the cost difference.

CAN I RE-INSTALL THE STOCK HOOD LINER ON THE NEW HOOD? It is possible but you would need to modify it to make it work. RKSport Hoods do not require a hood liner. The primary purpose of a hood liner is to protect the paint from engine heat. The double walled construction of our hoods, combined with the natural ability of fiberglass to dissipate heat, makes the hood liner unnecessary.

HOW MUCH DOES THE RK Sport HOOD WEIGH? We do not publish individual hood weights but in most cases fiberglass and carbon fiber hoods are 20-30% lighter than stock metal hoods.

ARE THE RKSPORT HOODS FUNCTIONAL? We define functional to mean that cool outside air is channeled through the hood, via a ram air scoop, and delivered directly over the factory intake box. all RKSport Ram Air Hoods are functional.

HOW DO THE HEAT EXTRACTION VENTS WORK? RKSport heat extraction vents allow a significant volume of otherwise trapped, hot air to rise through the extraction vents where it can be released from the engine compartment resulting in a cooler running, better performing engine.

This is the second fibreglass hood on the car in the pictures the first would almost fold in half when you tried to close it. The RKsports hood is built to last. It takes a little work to fit and adjust. Make sure you have a good body shop fit and adjust your hood. I absolutely love how the hood changed the look of the car. Very well built.

Cold air intake, mandrel bent air to air pipes, magna flow exhaust, and a little tune pushing about 24 lbs. boost. All running through a new Gen 3 ZZP performance 2.0
