Any one know what hood is needed to clear a 351w with a spyder intake. I have a 21/2" cowl and its hitting the CAI pipe. Just barely but enough to keep it from closing. I have the energy suspension convert motor mounts on it now, will 351w solid drop mounts lower it enough to clear????Its a 88GT

Time to get ya one of these! I love my 4" H.O. Fibertrends.


But honestly... I really dunno what to tell you without being able to be there and see it:confused:

the problem I am having is that where the "power pipe" makes its 90 degree bend out of the throttle body towards the front of the car, my 21/2" cowl rests on it right there, it almost closes. I am tempted to put a couple washers inbetween the hinge and the hood

i think the drop mounts are about 3/4"
Lay something across the fenders, like a 2x4 and see how much clearance you need or have to play with
