Post High Rise Cowl Hood for '81 to '87 Chevy Truck

The highest cowl I can find is about 2 inches above the normal hood line, I need to fit in a 454 topped with a blower and try to avoid running a hood scoop type set-up. Are there any manufacturers who sell higher cowls off the shelf?

Try Goodmark. I've used some of their metal hoods and they fit good, not sure how tall they make them.

OOOOOH NNNNNNOOOOOOOOO HOODSCOOPS ON TRUCKS AHHHHHHHH...... I had to say that... anyway.. if you are good with metal you could make your own. it sounds beater but I made a hood scoop for my camaro by cutting the body line and lifting it 3 inches (you would have to lift alot more) then I cut some metal off another hood and added it to the back to give it overhang. It ends up giving you a nice wide cowl scoop that follows the origional body line (sounds beater to say you made it yourself though)

I tried www.up22.com for my hood but they said 4-6 weeks for delivery.I went with a Harwood hood from jegs they had it in stock and i had it within three days.The other good part is it is almost perfect with only a few dips in the fiberglass.
