basically...the hood latch on the CF hood isnt as strong as the stock hood. ive seen CF hoods fly up at high speeds. depending on the brand of hood you got also, the lighter ones tend to rattle as opposed to the heavier fiberglass reinforced ones. my hood weighs about 12 lbs so i definately didnt want to take chances.

in terms of cost and installation, sparco hoodpins cost about 50-60 bucks and you can easily do the install with a dremel.
