cowl induction hood V.S. carb scoop

i am geting a new hood for my 79 camaro an was wondering wether to use a cowl hood or a carb scoop. the reason i ask is because my carb sticks about 4 inches out of my hood due to a spacer i have on it any input on this would be helpful.

Scoop or cowl either one if you need more than 4" to clear the carb and filter, you need to check your state laws on how tall you can go legally. Most states limit you to 4 inches. I would go with the cowl hood if posible. Clean lines and it works in bad weather where a scoop sucks it all in.
