STYLIN: Heat Extractor Hood vs Cervinis Cowl Hood

So what are ya'lls thoughts? Which one looks better? Which one do you think functions better? If you have one, pros/cons of the hood? I know that the heat extractor hood is fiberglass, and the cervinis one is steel. I like the Cervinis cowl hood over other cowl hoods, because it doesn't have that "dip/crevice" in the middle of the hood like some others have. The cowl also doesn't come to a point in the front/center of the hood. Both the Cervinis Cowl hood and the heat extractor hood are about $600 BEFORE shipping. Anyway, here are some pics so others will know what I'm talking about...

The Cervinis is awesome. I wanted one but couldn't justify spending over $600 for just a hood. I ended up getting this one. I've got @ $750 in it after paint...

I personally like Eric's cowl hood better than the Cervini but that is just a personal taste thing. I really like the Cervini heat extractor though, not so much for looks but for function. It'll get the hot air out of the engine bay better than a cowl hood will.

I don't think you can go wrong either way but I like the Cervini a little more.

I like the cervini's over the heat extractor, but definitely like Eric's better than the cervini's.

Does anyone else feel like the heat extractor makes your truck look like it has boobs? Especially in that first pic

The cervini's hood is metal? I have had 3 Different hoods from them and they were all fiberglass... anyway for function I like the heat extractor hood but looks wise I like the way the cervini's cowl looks. Every time I see the cowl hoods with the dips in the middle all I can think is that they were to cheap to buy a cervini's
