this has been covered already dude... you will need an SiR style hood to clear the k20a2 motor. and only if you run a 3-pulley setup...

otherwise, you will need to cut a hole in the hood or get a hood like what bmcrace offers....

from what ive read, they have the fastest Time Attack FF-drive car(or something like that), a CRX.
I think Top Fuel holds that record... :wink:

Here's the hood clearance scoop.

The kit was designed to be used with an SiR style hood. If you have a K24, it will not clear the hood. The other clearance issue is the p/s pump or EP idler. They will not clear the hood either. A lot of people have been omitting the idler and just using the alternator, water pump, crank pulleys and some spacers to get around the problem. We have a product that will be released in July to solve the problem a little better.

i wanted to say thanks for your help, somewhere on this site there is pics of a car (CRX orCIVIC) with the powersterring or the altanator sticking out by like four inches! now if this is in a EF why is there a power sterring pump? (unless they used a fourdoor p/s rack) again thanks for the help and the great motor mounts :)

i just wanted to make sure: will the fiber images SIR styleCF hood clear? and shut like stock?
