I’m wanting to order the VIS Racing AMS style hood for my 2013 3.8 Track, but I was wondering if there will be any fitment issues since I have the 3point8 performance manifold riser already installed?

Also, what should I do for the hood prop? I’ve read that with carbon hoods, you should remove the OEM hood shock and use a stick to prop open the hood moving forward. Any thoughts/recommendations?

I had a CF hood like that, don't recall the brand but the same 6 vents. I think I saved 25-30 lbs. I used my mom's (may she RIP) adjustable aluminum cane to prop up the hood. I think I put the rubber bottom end somewhere in the front of the engine an the rubber handgrip on the hood. You'd see what what what I mean. Worked well. There are CF hood props around also. These CF hoods won't hold up to using the stock hood strut.
