I have a 16 Challenger Scatpak and would like to get a carbon fiber Hellcat hood for it. Anyone have experience with any of the brands/sites that offer these?? My fear is the fitment being off.

I’d go with the OE hellcat hood. I’ve seen CF hoods made by several companies up close at several shows and I was disappointed in quality. You’ll be surprised how light the OE aluminum hellcat hood is.

I put one on my 2009 for several reasons I had to work around. Pic enclosed. I saw a few CF hoods and the fit and finish wasn't real impressing, but I went with Carbon Creations CF Hellcat hood and while it took quite a while to fit it just right the look is sweet and changed the whole look of the car. All of the vents in the hood are great for the 426 stroker under it to keep cool.

Thanks for the input guys, I think I will probably go with the Steve White OE Hellcat Hood.

THE BEST HOOD is from the dealership. IMHO, You cannot beat OEM quality. I just purchased a Hellcat hood for my 2010 R/T Classic. The only issue you will have is that the windshield squirters are on the bottom on the latest gen cars, vs. on the top for the 09-13 cars. The plastic cowling on the dr. side blocks the squirter path. So, it will have to be notched or replaced as well. I will get squirters and the cowling soon. Another plus is if you buy from your local dealer, shipping to the dealer is free. Just pick it up. A minus was that the dealer told me that the isolator mat had to be purchased before FCA would sell me the hood. I'm guessing for safety, but IDK. Finally, if you have a T/A style CAI, the upper cover bolted to the hood blocks the dr. side heat vent. I have not done CAI yet, so it is just FYI. BTW, my stock hood is for sale. It is on the parts for sale forum. It is flawless, but in furious fuchsia. I bet it would look great as is on a lime green or yellow jacket car. :)
