About This Item

Are you sick of the ugly OEM hood prop obscuring the gorgeous FA20 boxer engine? Ever wished to use just a few fingertips to open your feather-light hood? Getting frustrated with the hood prop constantly getting in the way of your engine bay work? GrimmSpeed comes to the aid. This kit is the result of tight cooperation between GrimmSpeed and FT86Club.com members and delivers in a huge way. Although we detest the word "perfect," it was necessary to build this kit with perfect balance in mind. There is a sizable neutral zone when you lift the hood halfway. Give your local auto show a slick look by leaving your hood here. Alternatively, all it takes is a flick of the wrist to force your hood all the way open. Simply hold the hood below its neutral zone and release it to close. No need to force your hood closed and run the danger of scratches or deformation.

DESIGN

This kit was designed using our in-house FARO Arm and an accompanying suite of CAD software. We began by mapping the BRZ/FR-S hood and engine bay in 3D CAD (see one of our engineers in action below). From there, a lifting linkage was designed, analyzed, prototyped, and tested. After months of testing and revisions, the brackets went into production using the latest in laser cutting and CNC bending equipment. What that means for you is a system that will fit and operate correctly, every single time, for years to come. What about the struts, you ask? They're beefy. Custom built to our exacting specifications, these struts feature a large diameter body that provides excellent opening force without sacrificing smoothness and control. Rounding it all out is a heavy-duty textured black DuPont powder coat and black zinc hardware.

MATERIALS

With the use and exposure that a hood strut kit will see on a regular basis, material selection and finishing options are critically important. All brackets are produced from a mild steel alloy that maintains its integrity after laser cutting and bending. After a thorough cleaning, the parts are all powder-coated with a durable DuPont texture black. The next key component is the struts themselves. More specifically, these are referred to as gas springs. Manufactured in the USA, these are of the highest quality and are used by OEMs around the world. These custom valved units (to perfectly match the weight of the BRZ/FRS hood) are paired with clear zinc hardware and a quick-release ball and socket. Last, but certainly not least, is the included hardware. All hardware is grade 8.8 or higher and zinc coated for longevity.
