Looking to add a more aggressive profile to your CTS V coupe, sedan, or wagon?  The V Power Extractor hood not only adds some muscle to the front of your car, but also provides superior cooling, and allows for more room for larger twin screw super chargers like the weapon X motorsports 3.4L twin screw!  This is the full carbon fiber inner and outer hood offered.  

The design
This hood was designed to keep the stock CTS lines unlike the rest on the market and also drastically improve air flow out of the engine bay to expel the massive amounts of heat the blower makes under boost. This is achieved through a large cowl induction vent along the back of the hood plus optional heat extractor vents on the sides of the cowl. It will also allow you to pack the big guns under there as well! I designed the hood in consulting 5Axis and the production renderings were firmed up and the after discussing production with a few manufacturers, I went with one that's been in business for decades in California.  The hood was modeled directly with the stock CTS V hood so it is a direct fit for the bolts, washer lines, nozzles etc.  It is very sturdy with a two part production of an inner and outer hood mold seaming the two halves together.  Fiberglass requires prepping and paint, but the carbon fiber hood is finished to leave exposed or can be painted as well.

The results
Engine temps have been about 5-8* cooler but I'm also amazed at how quickly the IAT1s and IAT2s drop down after being under heavy boost. While at low speeds, the cowl allows the heat to rise out of the back of the hood above the blower. Under faster speeds, this becomes a high pressure area forcing cool air into the engine bay. Also the optional heat extractor vents allow hot air to be drawn out of the bay at any speed or sitting still. You can see and feel the heat pouring out of these vents even after the car is shut off and the radiator fans aren't pushing air.
