    Both will look good but I'd go with the 1 1/2 because it seems like it would flow better with your car.

    I agree...the 1.5" would look real clean and subtle on your car :thumb:

    I agree with the 1 1/2", imo it's hard to beat a Cobra R hood.

    I say 2.5... just because it would look pimp.

    i say 2.5 might as well make it noticeiable i have a 2.5 on my fox and its really not that big at all i think the 1.5 would be the equivalent to the rise fo the stock hood hahah

    Ya dude at least 2.5 personally the 3 inchers look the best. I think the 1.5 would barely be more then the stocker. Go bigger.

    I think that site is confusing and it depends where you measure from. The real Cobra R hood is 2.5" but they call it 1.5", maybe because its 1.5" over the stock hood?
