    i would be alittle too worried about running lean with the stock injectors but 24s would probably cover it and i got a friend that offered me a set of 24s and a pro m for 200 bucks

    You probably should get a muffler shop to get a smooth bent intake tube, all those notchy turns are probably gonna be restrictive to the flow.

    True, I honestly don't know how long I'll keep this setup so for the time being it will stay as it is. For looks and flow I'd rather have a larger tube that doesn't bend so much.... however I might totally change the setup and add an intercooler.... :shrug:

    I should add that the hood hasn't been painted.... maybe I should have it painted black this winter? :shrug:

    The black hood on a red car really grew on me.


    Anyhow, what kind of pic would you like? A side view?

    Very Nice setup Jim!:nice:

    I am a fan of Eaton myself. Soon to be Whipple. :D

    I had a Harwood hood on my old 88 GT. It fit very well after a little sanding here and there.

    Here are a few shots of it if you are interested in it.
