I wouldn't suggest using struts with a cf hood. You may encounter issues with the fiberglass core not holding up over time. If it's dry carbon, I'm not too sure.

I would suggest using the standard hood prop.

We have had the Z1 hood struts installed on several carbon fiber hoods with no complaints. We use a lower pressure than most on the market to avoid hood bulge and also keep it from flying up too fast.
