Thanks man! There is a pretty good savings in weight. I did not weigh it but I would guess the stocker to weigh about 30-35lbs and the carbon one to weigh in around 15-20lbs

edit: what front lip is that and does it match the hood perfectly?
Blakelocati,
Thank you, I appreciate the feedback.

Hood Install:
I installed both the hood and pins myself. You will most likely need someone to help lift the old one off and new one on though.

Hood Pins:

They look and function great. Install was a bit of a !@#$ but it was well worth it. If your not comfortable with cutting on your new hood you might want to have someone install them for you.

Lip:
I used this SLEK knockoff lip.

My friend went with the SLEK and they are almost identical.
