it wont be ****ed up. Its just some peeps opinions on the fitment look. Some say stock hoods dont look good with the cobra bumper but i think mine looks good. I think the cobra bumper is shorter that the gt hood. Not COMPLETELY sure though. Its just an opinion on the look.

I have a OEM 03 Cobra hood on my Roush. The only thing that I don't like about it, is how the GT bumper doesn't come all the way up to meet the hood. In the pic you can really see what I'm talking about, Really the only way you see it, is if you get down and look at it level like this pic was taken at, but still drives me crazy. Its like Baker said its like the cobra hood is a bit sorter??

As for it fitting, I know I didn't have any issues with the OEM hood Cobra hood.

try lowering your hood bumpers and it should close that gap. Not so uch that your hood shaks but try to play with it. The cobra hoods have the same fitment and dimensions as the GT so there should be no issues at all.

I looked at that hood for $299. I don't know..I try to stay away from non OEM body parts, but that's just me. Plus it looks like you will have to cut the holes out for the vents. For $300.00 you could just but a OEM cobra hood and know that it will fit with out issues.

Is this the same hood

yes that is the hood.....i was looking at the kaenen hood too, im wondering if itll have the gap like an oem will. i honestly think it looks fine, but if i were showing off my car and someone pointed it out id be pissed off lol

The two pillar pieces on the cobra bumper near the grille are slightly taller than the pillars on the GT bumper. There for you'll have the gap thats shown in the pictures above. When combing cobra bumper and GT hood you have to either: cut the tops of the pillars off, push them back and redrill the holes or fiddle with your latch assembly to make it fit (what I did).

I tried that also, it made my hood sit lower than the fenders. I'm just going to stick a 03/04 Cobra bumper on it and call it a day.

go to abcexclusive.com

They have the 03/04 cobra hood but is designed to fit 99-04 GTs

I Know a guy at blue oval industries they have some nice ass project cars there. Good place to find parts at a good price.

like some say OEM parts dont fit well like aftermarket oem parts.

I dont know anyone who has bought that hood from them. But alot of people buy the supercharger kits and exhaust systems from them.

but I hear good things about abcexlusive though. check out there site they show pics of the hood and latch. I believe they give a really nice warranty with it as well.

i have that exact hood from them.... it works best with a cobra bumper. the hoods kinda flimsy thought, not sure i'm 100% happy with it.
