    Has anyone ordered a cowl hood from Fibre Images for an 89 civic? Does it have clearance. What other carbon fibre hoods will fit an EF with a B18C and Hasport Mount kit??

    I have a CF ZC from VIS racing at home, but it doesn't fit. the hump provides clearance for the timing belt cover but not the whole valve cover or distributor cap.

    Can you cut out any of the underskeleton of the hood to fit the valve cover. If not, are you interested in selling the hood if you have to buy a new one?

    I decided to order a SIR cowl hood from Fibre Images. I didn't want to have to cut anything off a beautiful hood like this one! I was going to just trade it in when my SIR hood shows up in 10-15 days and just pay the differance (too long to wait though). I paid just over seven bills for it. You can probably get a better deal else where. Let me know, maybe its better if I trade up??

    If you paid $700 for a hood, you got RAPED!!

    I could get a full fiberglass front end for right around that price.

    Good luck with your car though. :thumbsup:

    The Fiber Images hood provides plenty of clearance.

    The Fibre Images SIR Cowl hood does evidently fit US front ends. I'm still waiting for mine because they are made after they are ordered, but I have been re-assured of its quality. Although I'm getting "raped" in Canadian funds apparently, I cant wait for it to arrive. It sucks driving with an open hood!!

    My buddies stock hood fit his GSR swap in his CRX, we had to remove a small piece of the hood webbing, but then we just removed it all, and the hood weighs less than my buddies new VIS carbon hood.
