Default Hood for supercharger

Iím planning to run a supercharger sooner than later and would like to get the hood now to facilitate the future installation of either a Kenne Belle or Magnuson. I LOVE the look of the Kenne Belle high rise hood but canít locate one. I did find one that looks very similar made by J&D Corvettes (https://www.jdcorvette.com/97-04-HOO...SS_p_2293.html) but I donít know if it would fit a KB Supercharger under it.

Has as anyone used a J&D Hood? Reviews? Do you see any differences between the KB Hood and the J&D Hood? Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

That looks like the kenne belle supercharger hood, it says in description it fits a magnuson .
The Lingenfelter hood I have on mine was made for the old mp112 Maggie, when installed over my tvs 2300,
it had to be cut to clear the back of the blower, as the newer blower is longer.

I think the KB Hood and the J&D Hood look very similar as well.

Does anyone know how much larger the KB is compared to the Magnuson TVS 2300?

Look into VFN Fiberglass as well. They make a number of different cowl hoods for the C5 and I'm sure atleast one of them will do the trick.

looks a good deal like my KB hood.
it fit my 2300 without cutting... it was the body lines that needed massaging (like most other hoods)

and i spent about a year stiff-arming naysayers on the Kenne Bell blower, but i'm sure glad i ended up buying a TVS - especially now that i'm turning it up.
