      Yes, the hood is slightly lifted so it clears just enough to close. I'm running it w out the cover but might change it up a bit.

      Does anyone have pics of what they have done to mod there hood to allow for a mk4 intake? I am going that route for my turbo setup and just wanna see what has been done to give room.

      Mine is raised a bit to give it clearance. Not sure if you can see the little gap.

      we talked about that in an old thread. someone verified that you don't need to modify the hood for the MK4 intake to fit

      i think it can vary from car to car, also engine mount condition/ configuration affect it too
