Check out this link for the BA style bulge. Have fun fitting it though, it's a lot of work and $ if you do it yourself and $$$$ if you get someone else to do it. It's not a simple paint and stick on job, you have to graft it into your existing bonnet. Unfortunately they don't make complete E series bonnets like they do for the AU and BA's :(

Check out details and pics in these threads

How much clearance do you need ? If it's only just not quite shutting properly you may be able to get away with a different sort of stick on scoop that'll be alot cheaper and easier to fit. If it's not a radical intake chances are it's only the thickness of the bonnet itself or a mm or 2 above that it's missing out by so you may not need a huge scoop. If it need a hole cut then do it, and then see what you need to cover it. Personally, I'd look at something like an EL GT scoop, and I'm not just saying that because I'm selling one ;)

I would go EL GT scoop, but the manifold isnt rubbing in the centr, its more to the drivers side which is why i am considering the bulge, will talk to my spray painter/panel beater about it

Ah...
well, again depending on how big it is, you may even be able to get away with fitting a stick on vent (like EB GT style) over the hole.

I'd be interesting to hear the panel beaters quote on grafting the BA bulge.
You'd have to cut a pretty small hole if you were going to do that as the fibreglass is pretty thin and you'd take some of the structural support out of the bonnet if you cut a hole the size of the the scoop (aside from being illegal)
