    i just did a gsr swap and I just had to cut a little webbing from the stock hood and it works fine. use a dremel tool with a cutting wheel; it took me 30 sec.

    most aftermarket hoods should work... or just modify yours so it fits.

    LS's have a smaller head/valve cover that allows it to drop into an ED chassis.

    The GSR and Type R blocks are 9 mm taller than the b16a.
