I know the old Allen was supposed to fit under the stock 96-97 T-bird hood without chopping a hole in it. Are there any other superchargers that fit without visibly damaging the hood or requiring its replacement?

SVO, centrifugals like Vortechs and prochargers though some bracing tends to need to be cut away
 
The Cobra blower for the 4v is very tight. But it actually clears better than the mach 1 intake.
I mocked it up, but I never came up with the basket/intercooler assembly.
 
They're now at $600 on ebay, down from 900.

How were you able to mock it up without the basket?

I wouldn’t be surprised if the overall height was the same since the Mach intake has some annoying protrusions but I guarantee there will be major hood clearance issues at the pulley/snout area where the hood is significantly sloped down
