I installed the quick lift kit this weekend. Im very happy with the product quality, fit and finish. The installation instructions are perfect, and full of color photos. I was surprised with how easily the lifter things lifted the heavy stock hood. It was easier than an intake to install, and didnt take me an hour to finish. Here's a pic.

yep, been around for a while...

RacerX had them before anyone i think.
He got his out of a Nissan 300zx 2+2 and then attached them to his car hood... he gave me all the details :)

but its a bit more complicated that these... which are already and set to go on the cougar - which makes life easier.

looks good. I'm thinking about ordering one, or maybe asking for it for x-mas...that stupid hood prop is always in my way.

Ya I read RacerX's how-to on these and contacted Redline. They already had them for a contour and thought it would be great for a Cougar.

Can these hold up the hood at various heights?

I got it off of Redline tuning. All you need to install it is a drill, 3/16 drill bit, masking tape, and a riveter. I got my craftsman riveter from sears for about 15 bucks.

It holds at two different points, one is all the way up; the other is at the balance point between gravity pulling it down, and the gas things pushing it up.

I'd like to see a pic of the hood at this "half-way point". I was looking at James' mini hood props for showing your car's engine bay, but I never liked the idea of not being able to hold the hood fully upright after installing it. But if this quick-lift kit can do both, I'm sold!

i would imagine its all in the installation...

if you dont want it to open as far up... adjust where you mount the thing. :shrug:
