the motec one would be my vote as there is a good chance the harness wouldn't have to go back 3 times for fixing stuff..

Yah it is a toss up of local support, vs Gspeed.

Plus Tony is trained and awesome with Motecs so that is a plus.

After ordering hood in October, getting a damaged one, sending it back, finally got a new hood. Looks good.

Sucks that it takes six months to clear up **** like that, but at least it wasn't holding up your build per se.

New hood is super thick. Heavy as hell. Way more than a stock hood.

The new hood looks good. How much is the center section raised? How wide is the underside raised (any supports taking internal room)? Asking to see if a roots style (Magnusom) super charger could fit under that hood.

Maybe 2". No supports or anything. Should fit a maggie.

What was the model and brand of the hood? I know it had issues but I might need some under hood clearance and the lines of that hood look nice and clean.

New crankshaft getting balanced. Hopefully a bunch of good motor assembly photos next week.

Other than that put wire harness/fuse box back in. Probably start mocking up fuel rails/lines/etc if possible since that will be a chore once motor arrives. Got a black aeromotive FPR to replace the red one, just for looks.
