As I don't have the bolts, I was thinking of purchasing one of these kits :http://m.summitracing.com/parts/tfs-51520019/overview/
Will this fit or will there be Clearance issues with the bonnet?

It will clear. I have the same thickness on my TFS intake and it's fine.

IIRC, the 1" spacer hits the bonnet bracing slightly.

I put a big blue tack blob on the TPS (mine is auto so TPS is taller) and I got a clearance of just over 1 inch but maybe the manifold will foul on the bonnet towards the front of the car where it tappers down.
