Engine clearance...

You're sporting a 6 inch body drop, and that engine is coming through the hood. What do you do? Easy, get yourself a cowl induction hood. There are functional ones, and stick on ones. If you want to go cheap with the stick on one, just cut out the portion of your hood that the engine needs for clearance, and stick it on. You will not fool people with these. They look cheap, you can see the seam of the cowl on the hood unless you get it molded into the hood, but that defeats the purpose of going cheap. The functional type is usually a whole hood that replaces the stock one. It isn't cheap but looks much more professional. Plus they are functional, meaning they allow air to come in to the engine bay. Some people even cut out there own cowl and fabricate the hood themselves. It has a custom appeal to it.
