Do you actually gain any clearance? In one of the reviewers pic the reinforcement bars look to be stock hight. Can the center reinforcing bars be removed with out effecting the strength of the hood? I use a carb and need the room my current 2.5 fiberglass hood offers.
I can't say I have had anyone remove the reinforcements, but I would not recommend it. That is taking away critical structuring that could cause the hood to easily bend. If you are needing additional clearance, a fiberglass hood is going to be the recommended option.
