    "Ok here is the best bet to fit under the stock hood, no guarantee's but it may work as you can tell in this pic. You WILL have to run a box upper intake which will kill your torque down low, however it MAY fit."
    This will not work with the stock hood.I have the Downs upper and gt40 lower, and I have a cowl hood and it still rubs at the back closest to the windshield. As soon as i get my heads finished and get it all back together i will try to post some pic's.

    Wasn't there a topic on this just a while ago, and somebody mentioned that there are lower poly motor mounts available, like Saleen used and this would make the 351 with a normal intake (non box) fit under the stock hood? Or a 96-98 cobra hood since you guys don't like cowls. Just a thought, but maybe I have missed something.

    Ive already got the 96 cobra hood going on. But there is no stock intake for a 351. You have to go with some aftermarket choices. Even mix and matching for the cobra or gt-40 intakes. Im just wondering who the people are that have done it. Ive seen many threads where people talk about a guy they knew. But does anyone know anyone for sure. I have lots of questions about their install and fitment.

    I've just come to the conclusion that I'm going to have to run a Cobra R hood. :shrug:

    I've only seen 351s clear the stock hood in fox body stangs. But I haven't seen too many 351s in 94-95s so I can't really comment about it.

    My thoughts exactly. If I don't end up with a turbo next year, it will be because I decide to stay N/A and do a 408W. The 351 weighs quite a bit more than a 302, so I'd want every last cube out of it :D. The other consideration for me personally is if I can get a 408W to run well and still squeak through emissions (have to pass an actual sniff test here in Orygun). That may force the issue, a turbo should be easy to get through the sniff test.
