Hood extractors on a V6?

Has anyone performed a GT hood swap so they now have extractors? Would love to see some!

I'll bet it would look just like a GT with hood extractors.

Concern has been expressed by guys that have them about water getting into the engine bay, and intake.

I won't do GT things to my car.

By 'hood extractors', are you referring to the heat extractors in their hoods?

I have heat extractors from my aftermarket hood:



I've had no issues through heavy rain and snow.

I know it's a little off topic since mine are molded into my hood, but I love the head extractors in my 302S hood

/\ Technically it forces cooler air in to mix with the hot air to provide cooling.

It's not a GT hood extractor hood but it looks pretty good on my V6. There's a big problem with water draining into the extractor and then "sneezing" all over the hood and windshield when you get some speed up on car. The GT500 has extractors with no problems of leaking into the engine compartment or "sneezing" on the windshield.
