Someone will come along with the dimencions you require I am shore.
The BMW engions are quite tall so I am resurving judgment on scuttle, nose and bonet hight untill engion is in.
Mabey we will need to redesign the intake manifold so it does not sit ontop of the rockercover to make it fit.

Do you intend modaling the engion?

The rear of the bonnet is 230 mm above the rails, see page 94.

Depends on scuttle and nose cone used as the heights will vary if they are placed direct to chassis and not on original design for metal scuttle.

Running ITB's will lower the height significantly. As it gets rid of the inlet manifold sitting on top of the engine.

Out of interest what engine are you using?
