Hood interchange options

Haven't posted in a good while. I come to the gurus that know their stuff about 4 gs.
I am needing a little more space above the engine under the hood. The factory hood for my 91 hatch dx or std is barely touching the ramhorn exhaust manifold. I would like to get a little more air space under the hood to help cool also. What is my option without a whole jdm front end conversion? Aftermarket carbon fiber is ok for me.

If you're not smashing into the hood, you could try cutting out some of the hood's skeletal structure in the problem spots. There's also those hood spacers you can wedge into the hinges.
