Newbie needs help with air cleaner question

Hi guys, glad to be a new member.
I just had my mechanic put a new 427 in my 1969 Camaro.
The old motor had a Weiand 7513 manifold and the new one has a Edelbrock Victor Jay which is close to 3/4" to 1" higher.
Problem is I have the Cowl induction Air Cleaner that sealed perfectly to my hood, now my hood won't close as it is sitting to high.
Rather than change manifolds or go to a different looking "dropped" air cleaner, is there a factory looking Cowl Induction snorkle aftermarket air cleaner with an additional drop to it available anywhere?
Thanks in advance.

Re: Newbie needs help with air cleaner question

If the air cleaner is off a small block with standard manifold, not a dual plane aluminum, there's a spacer you can remove to drop it several inches between the base of the air cleaner and the ring with the rubber seal.

There is no spacer on it at all, but thanks for the reply, I wish it was just that easy.

Useful? You dont have to lie to us
I see three fast 2 seaters. Those all serve the same purpose, some better then others.

Sorry I am no help on the air cleaner issue. If it was me I would probably just cut something down.
