    I just got a cf hood and was wondering if I can use hood pins that use poprivets or screws through the hood or the ones where you drill one hole that have the locks I dont know if one is better than the other ?thanx in advance

    use the lock ones if for some reason u dont have a factory hood latch (like the si i just bought). but if you do regular ones are good. the pins should come with mounting hardware. if not use pop rivits i think they make a cleaner look

    shitty cf hood?? Poor fitment? are there any gaps? That could be causing air to get under your hood and make it shake a little bit. I dunno bout you, but i wouldnt feel comfortable drilling a hole into my brand new cf hood..
