You might want to see if you can dremel off the bottom of the hood where it is making contact with the manifold, or potentially put some (non flammable) padding there. You should be able to file it down to gain enough clearance. The hood looks like it fits very well so I wouldn't adjust anything there alignment wise.

In terms of the hood open warning, the hood switch is in the upper left corner of the engine bay. Make sure that when the hood is closed the button is being pressed down.

Good luck with the fix!

Thanks for the advise. Actually right side of the hood pops up a little bit and when i try to push it down i can feel the manifold. Anyway i will try your way.

Unless it's a DCT equipped car, then there's switches built into the latches

Is it possible the manifold isn't seated all the way down?

Several aftermarket hoods have a thick inside layer that the OEM hood does not have. If this is the case you will need to cut the inside layer out to make room or adjust the hood bumpers up to make more room.

We had a chance to take a look at this yesterday for avex8.

The inside layer is already removed on the Arkym hoods, the vent protrudes downward on where the portion is usually bulged on the OEM powerdome.

There simply isn't any additional clearance for the supercharger manifold vs OEM intake box, even when cranking the height adjusters to max level. With an OEM hood, this wouldn't be an issue.

The hood is mad that you are granny shifting instead of double clutching.

Well the hood looks nice at least in these pics. The car is definitely sick looking.
