Ya, I have my hood. 2 reasons I ask, first, I messed up on my headers and didn't acount for the offset between the banks. They cone ends are pretty much equal heights above the ground but because of that offset, the drivers side header hit my hood I'm not sure what to do about it yet. The second reason is that I like the way it looks with the hood off. I don't plan on driving in the rain intentionally but you get caught sometimes!

You might want a different air cleaner to drive in the rain.

Do you mean a different filter element and if so, any recommendations? Or are you thinking a covered style air cleaner rather than the open one I have on it? Again, I'm hoping to not drive in the rain, just thinking of getting caught when I drive it to work or something similar.
