Some are reporting the oem is lighter. But I lifted this thing with my pinky finger. Also, I released the hood and forgot it was open. Drove off and before I hit 5mph it blew up. Infact every time the wind blew, it flew up like cardboard. On the highway it moves like a wave. I can't go over 120mph because I'm for certain it will rip away from the hood latch and fly off.

So double check its closed after oil changes or any service.

Nice. I ask because I see how your filter is open to the elements. And it may be time for some hood pins, Lil.
