Mecham Design, Performance
(623) 486-3144

Brief Description: The Mecham DuMans Multi-port Extractor Hood is a full-function hood utilizing dynamic, natural airflow to remove hot underhood air, while reducing front-end lift. This hood features an underhood plenum that feeds the extraction ports while properly directing drainage onto the ground, away from the engine and suspension. The DuMans styling is aggressive form following function, providing the driver with an exciting, unobstructed view. The hood is hand-laid composite construction with metal-reinforced attachment points, predrilled and tapped for easy bolt-on installation using OE hardware. Each extractor opening is screened with expanded aluminum.
