I should be able to tell you about the clearance on the hood by the end of next week... I will also be making an airbox, similair to the Skunk 2 and the Accord touring car set-ups for my car... Hopefully it works well...
You might be able to clear the hood if you run a really short trumpet....

TWM produce them with the short trumpets on them, I am going to try tuning mine with different lengthed trumpets to see what power difference they make..
The skunk 2 airbox looks like fibreglass so it will be custom made... Would be to hard to make for a different car, you just need some of the fibreglass's polystyrene and make the shape then the just lay the glass around it and then melt the poly out.. I'd be interested in seeing how it is attached to the ITB's (other than the tape)..

keep me informed on how the itb tuning comes out, i been hearing that with the hondata they dont work to well with itbs, iam not sure if thats tru since everyone is using a k-pro to do the swap, but i would like to see what kinda numbers people gettin with the short stack and long stack..... my bro has a set of twm short stack 50mm on his b series, its for drag and thats the reason he went with the short stack...... i heard the longer stack usually makes better mid to top end power for track use and thats the kinda numbers and set up iam going for with the k swap....... the airbox iam gonna try to fab one up my self i will take some pics and let everyone kno how it works out...... peace
