Its machined from nothing on the top, to half think on the bottom flange... I havent tested it yet, but people are getting it to work with washers on the mounts, and hood hinged... so i think a inch lower plenum will be good enough... and I have to cut the hood a bit more:up: Ill post if it closes soon enough.

i've been wondering what the effect on power would be from changing the angle of the airflow by doing that

I plan to cut the hood a bit more (webbing), and worst case put a washer under the mounts... whats your backup plan?

instead of washers, since your you, can you have someone make a billet spacer for under the mount? you know like a traced version of the mount?
