Great hoods...if your close (Ohio) they are cheaper to pick them up.

Do research on hoods before you buy...not saying Abc is ****, I don't know their quality. But there is a lot of good reviews about h.o.fiber trends. Prices are very similar.

Sonicblue11,

I'm not exactly sure what he specs are on this hood, but can tell you this is not our 3" Cobra R hood. The picture you posted looks like a 4 or 4.5" rise with just a single cowl (not a step up like the Cobra R). I think it looks wicked though. You should definitely rock this on your Mustang!

The "cowl" hoods are for looks, to fit taller engines and such under, and can have vents in the back to help with heat in the engine bay.

Look up pics and you decide. IMO 4 is too big unless you have something under the hood

4 is HUGE! IMO 3 is the best had a 3 Cobra R on my 87' I loved it but the wife didn't lol
Had an S351 on my first 85 GT.. Was only 1.5" or so.. Always wished it was a little higher.

I think 2.5" by HO fiber trends will work just fine for you
Also keep in mind that diff companies measures diff angles so some maybe taller than others
f.e. ho fibertrends 2.5 looks taller than cervinis 3"

Cruizin concepts, not sure if they still have the 4, but you would have to check.

It is a carbon fiber hood also. That is why the hood does not look black
