ie what hood you used oem SiR, VIS USDM SiR style, VIS JDM or Fiber images, if you cut the webbing etc, the dipstick and oilcap seems like they might sit highest, input would be greatly appreciated. I have a VIS JDM hood.

I know Ryan you cut yours out but i dont i wont the full hood i know fiber images makes skinless hoods underneth but also i dont wont carbonfiber i wont some weight on the front end when i go turbo.... so far on the hood for me im fucked im to damn picky :p ...
The front end of the car will be heavy enought with the swap and the turbo kit..a cf hood isnt necessary but either way just cut the under portion

Yea but i Dont wont a CF Hood and i Don't wont to cut a stock hood out im trying to find an alternative way thers gotta be a hood somewhere that will close completly... has anyone tryed the ZC Hood??? Cutting a SIR Hood will be my last resort if i cant find something thats works...
you wont be finding another way, you need a hood thats raised, if u have a usdm front end u will need to either cut it or buy a CF hood made for a usdm car that is SiR style.........ZC hood has its bump on the opposite side anyways.

Stock USDM hood fits with some modifications and ep3 idler pulley being used... I should have some pics soon...
I find that very hard to believe, if you look at swaps from the front and side angle it appears as though no hood with any dips whatsoever would fit
