Yes it does. This is my 1st Glasstek hood, way better than any other I have used for fit and finish.

Glasstek makes some quality stuff. Had one on my 67 very little bodywork to make it good for paint

Went out with the today with my son. It was 53 and sunny. Only problem was the side streets were wet from snow melting, car has dirt sling down the sides. 8 psi feels good and with the new rubber it hooked at 8 psi. Can't wait till spring!! and 15 psi

Finally got the car back together, been having a tough time with something, I can not post what yet until I speak to someone, I would like to give them a chance to redeem themselves. If they don't I let it fly.
Breaking in the motor now took it out a few times, tonight was the first time I had no issue's. I have not boosted it hard yet, rolled up on 5 psi motor feels real smooth.
I would like to hit track rental soon.

Just got back from a show tonight, boosted it for the 1st time since back together, feels so good!!! I miss that feeling. I must have answered 200 questions from people tonight. Pontiacs are rare around these parts.
The biggest question was "where do you get turbo headers for a Pontiac?" LMAO That's the pain when turbo charging a Pontiac, thinks its worth it.
I do have a big bug to work out but I will explain that soon.
