its 10.85 inches tall. it should fit. Reference the below post

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showpo...6&postcount=40

If the hood barely clears 11 inches @ the latch with the hood insulation, without the insulation and skeleton surely it will fit. We will see this weekend

Fancy valve covers would detract from funding to make the car go faster

Wife might get me some for XMas though... we'll see.

Thanks to Jason (lsxchevelle) and Derek (mayberryss) for the help.

Welp, it doesn't fit, but it hits the cowl, not the hood. Fairly certain after eyeballing it that it will clear the hood. At least the engine's in the car
Sawzall time

Success mother@%^ers. Fits under the cowl plastic, AND under the hood. Barely.

Every little bit of weight reduction helps.

You're blazing freakin' trails with this install! Me and a 4th gen buddy were talking fuel hat installs and lamenting how it's unlikely that a 5th gen'er would be caught dead with a sawzall, but in this one thread you've shown there's at least ONE willing soul out there. I think I see a Holley hi-rise in my SS's future.

The holley WILL need a hood. It's 1.5 inches taller then this intake, and I have about 1/8" of clearance.

Thanks for the info! Looking to get another hood before next summer, so this shouldn't be a problem.

Only thing left up top is getting the oil dipstick in, and mounting the coils.



Transmission time.

D.Coke, If you've got an 1/8th inch of clearance and a monster block, won't the torque from your engine flex and kick up into the hood when you go for a pass at the strip? Curious to see what you learn from this build once everything is buttoned up.

Its possible, but unlikely. Wouldnt hurt anything at any rate, other then a scuff (at which point I'd know obv its no bueno). We'll see.
