custom hood

ok let me start with some backstory
i'm thinking of doing a v8 swap on my focus and would like to put the engine in the cobra mustangs in the focus and was wondering how i could get a shaker hood made the fit over the engine
either that or i would like to find a way to put a cowl induction hood on so that i can supercharge the standard 4.6 or the new 5.0 and still fit it under my hood

that hood wont fit his 05. i guess if your going through doing a motor swap a front end swap isnt a big deal. You can just swap the fronts then it will fit

I have installed a ford racing shaker hood on a 2010 mustang, and it is pretty straight forward. The only issue will be the distance from the motor to the hood, as the shaker setup obviously bolts to the motor and sticks through a hole cut in the hood.
