Replacing air cleaner assembly, K&N?? HELP

Re: Replacing air cleaner assembly, K&N?? HELP
If your wondering about hood clearance, I would try to mock up the stock air cleaner to be the same height as the aftermarket options and put 1 or 2" pieces of clay on top of the cleaner to see how much they squash when you close the hood, of course closing it gently on the first try.
