im a lil worried bout that being as close as it is im going to take it on a few easy runs if it doesnt hit im going to run it hard and hit some bumps and if that doesnt hit im going to leave it alone if it does hit then im just going to cut out few peices of the skeleton with will make more then enough room, either way you do not have to cut a hole in your hood

thats really good to know that we will clear the stock hood, manufacturers should really get their facts straight before hand
