    I haven't heard this discussed, but I've only frequented here since mid October. Are the standard hoods stamped steel? The build configurator also says "with Functional Vents". Does the standard hood not have functional vents?

    huggytree, You are correct. I just placed a advertising magnet on my 2014 SRT hood and it is not magnetic. Thanks!

    If there's anything I can't figure out, I'm pretty sure the rep won't know either, haha. But I bet Google does!

    Seriously,,I have read, everything and seen everything, and talked about all most everything that has to do with this car... I was at the Woodward dream cruise and talking with random people, and they thought I was one of the people that designed the car.....

    They go faster with black hoods, something causes them to develop more horse power.

    Look it up its true I read it on the internet.
