Generally,but not always the case,you get what you pay for! With that said, I like the saleen hood lines better,they are not as pronounced as on the other hood,and in most cases,less is more!
I also noticed this:

Disclaimer: Saleen hoods are shipped unfinished and require prep-work before painting.
and that's all good and fine,but just factor the additional costs... while you're talking to your autobody painter,mention that you would like a couple of extra passes with the clear coat,stock clear coat is way too thin and chips easily from flying debris...

you're starting with a new UNPAINTED hood, so take the inititive and have it done right.
Don't be surprised if you're closer to $2,000,or slightly higher with all said and done.

One last observation; a good paint job starts with good/excellent prepwork,the slightest imperfection left behind in the prep WILL become more pronunced with the finished product... so deal with a very good and reputable body shop.
