Well, I searched the forum and really didn't come up with much information on what hood i really need. Need some suggestions.

I have a 79 with complete Top-End Rebuild. Edelbrock RPM Intake Manifold with a Holley Carb. The Air cleaner is about 3.25''. The stock hood will obviously need to be replaced. What are my options? I have done some research and what interests me the most and think looks the best is this but is it to much clearance? Or where can I get it cheaper? I'm sure shipping rates are ridiculous with this item.
