Hey kj, that hood is a replacememnt hood, nto just a scoop. It is very similar to the CF hood mentioned by stlwagon. It is an imitation CD hood, the differenc ebeing it looks like you have a 3-4" cowl as opposed to the 2" cowl on the CD hood. Again, this is not jsut a scoop to add on, but an actual fiberglass hood.
Yes, on my first hood, I did have a few issues, most of which we repairable. The front fenders did to be adjusted inward for a proper fit on the first hood. The fiberglass was not perfect so unless you blocked the top of the hood, after painting it black you would have seen the imperfections. The screens were not attached.
The biggest issue was the raised corner, wshich the RKSport hood did the same thing. It was my car that was defectrive in that area. My RKSport hood did need prepping, but fender adjustment was minimal if any. I did have to enlarge the hinge holes for a perfect fit. Once I fixed the defect int eh cowl, it was all good.
