Can someone with a 4.7 somehow measure the clearance between your TB and the hood?
 
Thanks...really important! My 5.1 needs a new intake manifold and I'm looking into many options....but most will not clear the stock hood. Maybe Pauly knows or someone can measure somehow? LOL

I believe you would need a midget for this job to get under the vehicle and measure with the hood closed. LOL

When i needed good measurements front under the hood, i would use clay sprayed with WD-40 to keep it from sticking to the hood, best and sure measurements.

not getting a medic hood.....I dont think it would work with the manifold I want to use. I will probably have to make my own-----

so scott, I am having trouble measuring with the medic hood on. I can tell you its at least 5 inches. i put a box about 5 inshes high on top of my strut bar, taped it on. then i put a big mess of old car wax on top of the box and closed the hood down , when i reopened it. none of the wax was on the hood and it closed fine.
