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

    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.

    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.

    I would prefer to use the stock latch. leaning towards the shorter one.
