How Good is the Quality of Cervinis Hoods?

I am looking for a good aftermarket hood for my 2006 that isn't going to cost me as much as the car did to get it fit and preped for paint on top of initial cost of the hood. I am leaning towards the Cervinis concept ram air hood. Is there anyone here that has a Cervinis hood? If so, How was the fit and how much prep was needed for paint?

That's a 4 inch cowl by Cervini, on the Avitar you see on the left. Excellent quality, Mike.

Mine fits great, but the customer service was poopy, prep was easy a couple of coats of primer and sanding and the paint layed down nice. I think you can also get them painted from cervini... and they are quite a bit heavier than the stock alum one.

cervinis hood

Just got my cervinis ram air hood. There was hardly no prep work. Just had to even one of the corners some. Been up to 85 mph and no hood shake. The cervinis hood is a little heavier than the stock one. I had hood struts, and they still hold the hood up, but Advance Auto sells a strut helper that I installed to keep the wind from blowing the hood down when open at shows.

I've only heard good things about the quality of their hoods as well as their other body parts

I have had the Cervini's Concept hood for two years now and no problems. Not much prep work and quality and fit are excellant. It is definately heavier than stock. I like it also because the underside is finished and easy to paint.

Had a Cervini 4 inch cowel on the car until this build in progress. Changing to a much much lighter hood (forget what it's made of?). You can see from the pic, car is launching pretty violently and no need for hood pins going 135+ in the 1/4.....excellent fit.

Do NOT get a 4 inch cowel for street use, limits vision.

any update?

I'm considering getting their C-series hood for my car and having them pre-paint it. Their price to paint is about $100 cheaper than our local body shop but then again, the body shop would get it mounted and installed so..

only other hood that I like for the 2010+ cars is the comically overpriced Saleen hood.
