LS3 / Maggie Clearance

I am looking to add a maggie to my LS3.
Any hood clearance issues to worry about?
I am running a stinger hood, which has a similar hole as the cowl. Has anyone had to cut into the hood structure to get their maggie or whipple to fit?

Magnuson's webpage has nothing on the size, just the wt of the shipping boxes.
The only thing I have read (from a 3rd party) is they are about 1 7/8" taller than the stock manifold.
I would be curious if the throttle body raises much, it could be an issue.
I figured somebody in here has gone this route already.

Re: LS3 / Maggie Clearance

I have the measurements somewhere. I had on on my 04 Vette. I'll dig them up

Nothing like a Roots style blower on an LS!

John, thanks ahead of time! I'm looking forward to kicking this thing in the butt.
Which Maggie is on your vette? The TVS2300 "Heartbeat" or their TVS2300?

John,
Is that the Magnuson Heartbeat style or their jackshaft style blower you had on your vet.
Either way, the measurements would be helpful, I'm not 100% sure which direction I am going yet.
