NASA hood clearance
Does anybody know how much hood clearance can be gained by going to a ram air hood?

I have a standard hood with a boss 429 scoop and I would like to switch.

73 conv. 460, D0VE large valve heads, Performer RPM manifold, Voodoo 227/233 cam, Holley 950 HP carb, C6 trans, 3.25 trak-loc.
I don't know the exact amount of difference but you should be ok.You might need a drop base air cleaner,I could just see the top of my air cleaner through the scoops.Now that's with a drop base air cleaner and a torker intake.I know your performer rpm is taller,but I have seen people using the stealth manifold and it fit and it's a little taller than your performer,not much,but a little taller.

73 mach1
it's about 2" additional space you gain. Not to mention it looks a lot better.

73 Convertible - 351C/4V CC heads/4bolt/forged flat tops/comp 270/rhodes/mallory unilite/tri-power/hookers/glasspacks/c6/3.50 limited slip/Gear Vendors/Global West sub frames, strut rods and shelby style traction bars/ Rear sway bar/tilt steering (not original)
