i've had 2 VIS hoods in my time and i'll vouch for their quality and fit. the weaves, rolled edges, clearcoat are topnotch. one of the hoods i have is the invader hood, which is available for sale as my sig would suggest. hit me up if you're interest. it's vented if that's what you mean by "induction"

You can't get the best CF hoods cheaply, that's the point. The best are Wings West and Kaminari, but both will set you back $700. On the plus side, they have all the proper latches and connectors and they will work with the hood support bar.

I have a VIS CF hood an it was freakin flawless....perfect weave, perfect fit etc. I just found out a few weeks ago that FI is rolling the edges now....which means there hoods will look better. some have had bad experiences w/ both VIS/FI, so basically, I'd go w/ the cheaper one since you'll be gettin a great quality hood either way. FI was traditionally a little bit lighter, but not as good looking, whereas the VIS were a little heavier but looked better.

kaminari is good too, but I don't know if it's really worth the extra money compared to the VIS/FI hoods. I'm not big on the WW CF hood since it's got those two vents on them....looks strange. if they made an OEM style CF hood then I'd be down to buy one. from what I've heard, their fit an quality is perfect everytime :bigthumb:

VIS is ok... but I've had some problems with mine, so I don't know that I'd reccomend it. I think it has to do with the damn NE weather... but who knows.
what problems did you have with it.

I'm considering getting one so i just wanna make sure i'm amaking a good decision.
