To my understanding, a small block will fit with the stock hood, no? I mean, if the hood is there, you might as well throw in a blown 454...

Especially when every single one has the same issue, and they refuse to fix it. They just keep sending me another when I get fed up with each one.

Props to you handling criticism. We've had some issues here of others not taking that very well.

But yes for the most part I like your car.

If you happen to install a monster under there i guess the hood can slide

When you're done with your project be sure upload pics and videos!

It happens......

Mine came out when I made a hard stop instead of blowing through a dark yellow light. Didn't realize it until the light turned green and I took off again. Heard and felt something go under both left side wheels, looked up in the mirror and saw pieces of plastic on the road behind me. When I got home is when I saw the missing grill and "put the pieces together". Ran over my own effing kidney grill....
