I was wondering if you guys know if the cowl hood made by CincySHO.com for a Gen II SHO will work for a Gen II Taurus GL? Also if it doesn't do you know anybody that makes one that does? Thanks much!

I believe that all Gen II Taurus hoods are identical, so they should. Your best bet would be to email cincysho.com and find out!

Gen I and II SHO used a Sable hood which didn't have the depression in the center. It gave a little extra engine clearance.

I did e-mail them, they havn't gotten back to me yet. And as with them using a sable hood, are the dimensions the same and mounting?

The SHO, SLO and Sable hoods are all different. The SHO hood was designed without the creases for aesthetic reasons. A Sable hood has different bracing on the underside than a SHO hood, and it will cause clearance issues on the SHO. Some SHOwners have used the SLO hood on a SHO with some very minor tweaking of the hood strut tab on the passenger side.
