Around 2013, Chrysler created a concept called the Dodge Dart GTS. It was a Dodge Dart that was lowered, had some cool aero stuff including a viper style inspired carbon fiber hood.

Well, unfortunately for Dart enthusiasts this car was never built.

Fast forward to 2014, and Modern Performance decided to take the initiative to create a GTS style hood for all the Dart owners! This hood is made with a 3k carbon fiber twill, has fiberglass underside for maximum strength and uses the factory latch and hinges. The scoop is open and allows air in just like a viper style hood.

Quick notes on this product:

Carbon Fiber
Carbon fiber is a hand laid product, and because of that, all hoods can have minor imperfections. These can be very small and not normally noticed things like a slight twist in the cf weave, very small dimples, etc. Most people would never notice this, but if you are searching for imperfections and looking very closely you might see some.

Installing the hood
This hood is designed to install with the factory hinges, and use the factory latch. Please note that you will need to transfer your oem latch from your factory hood to this hood. This is very easy to do, as the latch is held in place with two bolts.

NOTE: The factory hood has a rubber weatherstripping on the bottom of the hood to seal to the body of the car. The GTS tribute hood does not have the oem weatherstripping on it, but you could transfer your oem one to this hood if you wish. You would either need to glue the weatherstripping to the bottom of the GTS hood, or drill holes and then use the oem clips to secure the molding to the GTS hood.
If you want to buy new weatherstripping and clips, here is the Mopar part number:
Mopar Part Number 68082830AE.

Also, windshield washer squirter holes are cut so you can transfer your existing squirters and lines. Please keep in mind when installing a hood it can take a good amount of time to get it to be perfectly lined up, to install the washer squirters, washer lines, etc.

Caring for your hood
The more time your hood is exposed to UV, the more likely it can have a haze on the clear coat, or the clear coat even turn brown. So, keep a good coat of wax on the hood to protect it from uv rays, and every few years you should have a professional body shop sand and re-clear coat the hood to keep it looking fantastic and very glossy.

      Will the Mopar Performance Ram Air Duct function with this GTS Tribute Hood?

        This hood will not work with the Mopar duct unless you do some custom cutting/installation. The underside of the hood around the duct area is different than the oem hood.

      Hey so I live in rainy Oregon. I was wondering if I install this hood will I have to cover the hole up if it rains? I have a CAI system and I'm worried about sucking up water.

        The hood has a small vent, and rain will not pour into the engine bay or anything. Remember, there are plenty of cars with open hoods from the factory and its ok! Neon SRT4's, Vipers, heck, even Nissan GTR's have open holes that funnel air directly on top of the turbos, etc. Engine bays are water tight, and very small amounts of moisture, even rain drops are not going to cause a problem.

      Can you paint this hood to match the body color?
      1 Answer
      • customer service rep

        You could, but we dont understand why you would do that when we have a fiberglass hood thats meant to be painted to match. If your goal is to paint the hood, then get the cheaper, made to be painted fiberglass hood.

      Will my insulater from my old hood work or will I need a new one?
      1 Answer
      • Customer Service Rep

        If you are talking about the foam like insulation on the bottom side of the hood, because this hood is molded after a stock hood on the bottom side it could be custom installed by yourself. You'd just have to cut around the scoop area and find a way to fasten/secure the insulation around the scoop area somehow.
