You've got me looking at hoods now. I'm thinking a nice thin z28 style cowl. Was looking for some pictures good enough to Photoshop but no luck.

Your hood is sitting here waiting for you to decide on what you want on top.

Yep, I'm looking. As soon as I get the cash and find one I like I'll run it past you to get your opinion.

I was liking this one, only 2 1/2" high, so nothing crazy. Just trying to picture it on the car...

Is that a Jegs cowl? I think I looked at that one as well before deciding on the WS6.

Yep, I found it priced pretty cheap at Jegs and liked the look. I like yours more, but I was trying to be original = P

Plus, I figured that would cover the area of the hood I wanted to open up underneath to make room for the supercharger and IC.

That would do it. Keep in mind, a 3" cowl sticks up rather far and you may not like it, so look at a 2" or so.

Yea, exactly my thoughts. This one is 2 1/2, I didn't see a shorter one.

I think mines a 2.5" or 3", can't remember. Going to take a little getting used to.
