Re: Stinger hood scoops on chevelles?

I prefer an L88 hood or 68-69 ss hood over the stinger.

Does the opening clear a 14" filter? Hood clearance and airflow on the 68-69 with stock hood (flat hood or SS hood makes no difference) is terrible. That was an unanswered question when I was looking.

You can make the insert functional by cutting it out and getting air directly inside but I'm sure there's more room underneath for a larger filter element.

I don't see the chrome insert (from the 'vette Stinger Hood) on your car. IMHO the insert is kind of a nice finishing touch.

If you blow up this pic you should be able to see insert.
