Anybody have any pics of a G-body Malibu with a 9" cowl hood? Is there any companies other than Unlimited that make a hood bigger than 6" for these cars?

i think at this point, a forward facing scoop stacked and done nicely (tastefully) is acceptable.

I believe that VFN and Glasstek either one will do a custom height cowl for an additional charge. Either of those companies you can trust will be high quality product, just like the stuff you guys sell.

Instead of deepening the oil pan, widen it and drop that engine down enough to use a respectable cowl height. Nine inches on anything other than a porn star is just gawdy.

Impossible. It's a dry sump motor. The oil pan is already 3 1/2" away from the ground and we still have the car at stock ride height and we already have the motor lowered almost 3" from stock. That's just how tall the motor is.

My car has a 10.2" deck 632 with a Profiler intake and Dominators. This motor is 3" taller than mine and we have his crank centerline only 1/16" higher than mine. The motor is a monster.

The customer doesn't want a scoop. He absolutely refuses. I think a 9" hood could look decent as long as it went all the way to the windshield. But I'm sure we'll have to make our own hood for that.

We have a 4" hood laying around, I'm trying to talk him into doing that and a plexi scoop like your car has.
