Is the hood fiberglass or aluminu? Also were you able to have the ram air route into the air box

It's metal. Yes I have a cold air intake so It worked out.

Thank you for sharing this information. Is it basically installing a hood from a 2500 on to a 1500? If so, is the fit the same or is there some modification required?

What does the vent do for the engine? Added HP or torque? Can you post a pic of what's under the hood?

I'm not sure I didn't check I went with chrome because of my grill.

Yes that's what it is. And the only thing that was changed was the hinges and springs from a 2500. Other than that nothing else.

I mainly did it just for looks but I am sure it should help the engine get more air and more power. I don't have any pictures of mine from under the hood but this is what it looks like under the insulator.

This should help I found it in FB I just don't know what part numbers are for the springs and hinges. Also the part number here for the duct on gmc is incorrect.
