Carbon fiber hood owners

A few questions for those of you with carbon fiber hoods, more specifically the VIS hood. Do you have hood pins of just the OEM striker setup? Also does anyone with an aftermarket BOV and CF hood notice a difference, such as a louder more distinct whoosh? Or is my hearing increasing its range of sensitivity? Possibly a mutant power?

I used to have the VIS on my old WRX and did not need to use hoodpins on it. Looks alot cleaner IMO without them. And the VIS is crafted pretty well so it fit up pretty smooth. The CF will transmit sounds a bit better than the aluminum hood but I also had the TXS RFL so you could here it a mile away anyways. So you are not a mutant I have the vis on my evo aswell and love it. Cant be the fitment when it comes to VIS.
