    Couldn't find a list of OEM or aftermarket component weights so I'm posting here. Bought an Anderson Composites CF hood from a friend. Weighed it an the OEM aluminum, stripped bare.

    OEM 32#
    Anderson CF hood 22.4#
    So 9.6# difference.

    Nice. I didn't know anyone was making a CF hood for the GT350.

    Speedkore also makes one, 20# according to their sales staff.

    A vacuum bagged, high-modulus dry carbon piece would probably weigh a third of that. Street guys tend to want glossy flawless finished (heavy) not lumpy dull race car parts (light).
