Our GT500 hood for the factory GT500 was tooled from Ford's OE part. Our GT500 Style for the GT350 is approximately 1" taller in the center to clear the strut brace in the engine compartment. These two hoods are not interchangeable for either model car.

so in theory I could use this hood on my 350 with a cj manifold without using drop engine mounts

It kinda sounds like 1" taller means taller than the GT500 profile so that there's clearance for the GT350 strut brace, not necessarily 1" taller than the OEM GT350 hood.

No, we started with the GT350 OE hood that we make and increased the height for the vent to clear the strut brace. The vent is very similar in design as the GT500. The vents are not interchangeable.

Fundamentally, the question is whether you meant there's 1" additional clearance between strut tower brace and the underside of the hood as compared to an OEM GT350 hood.

I hope (and actually do expect) fitment on this GT5 GT500-STYLE hood to be spot. Ordered mine from MPR and they said it fit very good! BUT, I paid for it exactly 4wks ago and stilll awaiting shipment to leave AC! 😒

The bottom of the hood with the added vent required approximately 1" added to the center to clear the strut bar. So if you changed or added height to the engine intake system over stock, you would technically still have hood clearance issue. See backside image attached.

You will need to contact MPR regarding your order status.

Lead times for in-stock items is approximately 20 business days. GT350 Type OE hood image included here.

Yes sir. I did just that over 1 week ago. John @MPR carbon contacted you (AC) for an order status update. He advised me that my hood IS indeed STILL awaiting to be picked up from you by your shipping co. Was told there is backlog / issue with getting shipping co. to pick up parts. 4 WEEKS..........UGH! I have purchased MANY AC CF items thru MPR.
