Hood to clear a P51 intake?

Will any of the available custom hoods for a 96/97 T-Bird fit over a 4.6L with a P51 intake manifold? Anybody actually tried that combination yet?

VicRattlehead,

I don't have the P51 intake manifold yet. It came up in discussions with VT Engines about a future engine build for my T-Bird. I'm certain the stock hood won't fit over a P51, and I'm concerned tthat he vfn hood (which would be my preferred alternative) won't fit either.
