Re: 4 inch cowl or higher?

i honestly dont think theres a real point for that hood, unless you have a supercharger under it. other than for space, i wouldnt use it. looks oversized imo

Re: 4 inch cowl or higher?

after looking at your car though, it would look kinda cool, it looks more like a hood to fit stuff under, than a stylish hood. I know for a fact i wouldnt like it on my car, but my cars black, yours is silver, that hood looks pretty good in silver

1" to 2.5" looks good for street driving.. higher than that are good for drag racing it's for aerodynamics.
