Default Fiberglass hood

I want a functional ram hood, but I can only find fiberglass and no steel. What are the pros and cons of fiberglass hoods?

Pro's are it's lighter, so you shave a few pounds. I don't know of any cons but I'd say if it's a cheapo it might flex a bit more with wind.

Pros: Lighter, easy to work on the material for mods.

Cons: Flimsy, gel coat fading, cracking, poor fitment.

If or when I do this hood, I have one question. I already have a mopar cai. Will the functional hood simply fit over the cai making the only airflow coming directly from the hood? If that makes sense?

No, you'll probably have to configure some connections.
