Default Cutting Hood for 3.4 Whipple Question

Any body got a pic of where they cut the under side of their hood to make room for the 3.4? Not wanting to put spacers between the K Member.

Just get a wax crayon or clay and put it on the highest part of the blower. Close the hood gently, and cut where the the marks are left.

I would never cut my hood based on someone elses pictures.

No I would never cut my hood based on what some one else did. I just wanted to see how it looks before I did it. Breaks my heart to have to do it.
Thanks.

I would rather space the K member down than cut my hood... Just my .02

Does the 2000 Cobra R hood fit a 3.4 whipple under? I like the R hood vs the cowl, IMO.

Get GT hood and cut the hole, the blower will be under the scoop.

Pretty sure that with a 3.4 sitting on top of your engine nobody is going to be looking at your fucking hood. JMO
