Default 40th GP hood extractors.......

barring an E-bay auction ...or bone yard scouring...does anyone know
if a fiberglass repro has been made of these..or in the making??
I like the GTA vent look here on the board ( and will do it eventually), but
would prefer these. $267 each @ GM parts direct! OUCH!!!
2001 Grand Prix 500 special and 2002 40th anniversary GP...
I know I`m not the only one that wants these.....subtle, but mean.

I put those on a GP I had years ago. Plastic, but looked nice. I'm sure someone has a set laying around... got mine off ebay. Be prepared to cut the hood though.

Very hard to find, ebay or clubgp is probably your best bet. I always said those would look good on a Bonneville (just not as good as they do on my GTP ). Good luck!

You know how sometimes when your looking for something and cant find it but then one day you find a pile of them?
Well if you find a pile of them I wouldn't mind a set too

That there is funny and made me chuckle.

Good luck with the hunt.

I think it'd LOOK good, but from a 'work good' standpoint, that'* not much of an opening.

There'* a complete hood on ebay with them for $449 in rochester, ny...

Seems a little pricy if you only want the extractors.

Agreed willwren.... more for show than go!
I`ll do a set-up like your ram air write up.
Fantastic engineering and tech data by the way...keep it up.
I like numbers that prove or disprove a the benefits of a mod.
thanks for the input guys...
