Stock hood clearance

I bought the Trick Flow street burner intake and plan on using an intake spacer. I'll be using taller valve covers, so I assume I will need a spacer. With this 1" spacer, can I keep my stock hood on my 89 fox? If not, would the smaller 3/8" spacer allow for stock hood clearance? Thanks

Accepted Answer
That intake will clear a factory hood, however with a spacer, some have had luck clearancing the hood reinforcement brace to clear, while others will not fit at all. It will depend on the condition of the motor mounts. To play it safe, we recommend a cowl hood when using that intake and a spacer.
