Did you change to some long tube headers.
I would be very very interested in the results of a Lt4 hot cam swap.
If you are going to go with the hot cam all youneed is the cam and roller rockers the zz4 already comes with the right springs.

Also the 395 hp number was produced using a Edlebrock performer rpm intake and a mech secondary carb according to the old Sally chevy sight.

You know I dont think they used a air gap manifold.
I had to have a 4 inch L 88 style scoop bonded to my stock hood the Edlebrock performer RPM is about 3/4 of an inch taller than stock.
Can you shut your stock hood with the zz4 manifold and carb and air cleaner if so add about 3/4 of a inch.
On my zz4 based engine I have tried to use every trick to maintain as much power as possible under drive surpitine pulleys,153 25 pound steel flywheel.,No P/S A/C or mech fan,long tubes and true duals.

well after cutting the stud on the air cleaner. seems i have a lot of room under the hood.. but what about a drop base air cleaner ? wouldnt that make it so you can fit under stock hood.. ? ?

There must be a considerable amount of space between cars and years because Like you I have heard of people being able to close there stock hood over a stock zz4 with only a drop base air cleaner.
On my car using a Edlebrock performer RPM,,half inch spacer,2 carb gaskets,Holley 770 and 2 and 3/4 drop base air cleaner there is only about 1/4 of an inch left under the 4 inch scoop.

I have it on my list of things to do today is to see how much room i have under there... When the mechanic did my motor install they didnt cut the stud and they cekp slamming my hood and couldnt figure out why....well the stud was hitting.. so now i have a nice little mark on my hood... heck if i could find a different hood i may even go that route,,,

That little mark will make a good point to measure off of to cut your hood
