different companies do measure the R hoods differently, I have an OEM Cobra R hood and it's listed as 1.5"

lol how does a hood like that open though? or maybe u have to just take it off LOL

I had one on a Fox a few years ago because apparently I liked being a poser. It was a lift off. I never really installed the Zeus fasteners required for the rear so it didn't stay on long.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but the photo I posted is Cervini's 3.5". Been advertised that way for years. Not sure where the second is listed but it may be the 5" listed on American Muscle's site, definitely more than 3.5".....


Lets clear up the confusion here. Cervini's does not list their Cobra R hood as a 3.5" rise. They do however list their cowl hood as 3.5".

And here's the best compare pictures I could find to help you out.

Maybe I measured mine wrong. It reads 3.5" but doesn't look nearly that big.

*edit* I take that back. after staring at both of them I think the picture looks bigger because it's painted and mine's black, plus mine is shaped a little differently. So I'm definitely interested in the 3.5"

is it possible that one is measuring the space under the hood, another measure how high the outside of the hood rises?

I sent a pm to my first vendor to try for this so hopefully we will hear good news back.

I measured from the cowl to the top of the hood. It would be interesting to find our if other manufacturers measured them differently.
