Howdy all, after installing the new engine, the top of the carb was flush with the stock hood, so I installed a 4" cowl: I cut grooves into the sides of the scoop, creating something like "tabs", where it flattens out on the side of the scoop for about 3 inches and slid the scoop side tabs in between the metal of the hood on both sides. Then I resined it into place and a few layers of fiber cloth, it's going nowhere. I hope that it explains it, a pic: And the engine is installed and running: Started right up and after fixing a major fuel leak it ran great, until... My temp gauge steadily rose to about 200 degrees in about 3 mins of running, so I shut it off. Checked the water in the radiator and it was dead still and just about room temp. The heads and intake were hot to the touch. They seemed hot enough that the thermostat would have opened. I think I might pull the thermostat and run without it to see if I get a different reading. Or possibly the water pump I installed is wrong? I'm going to check it out as soon as I can find the receipt. Other problems I see: Since I removed 2 or 300 lbs off the front, the wheel wells rose about and inch from where they were stock. The 13" wheels look even dinkier now I installed the quietest magnaflow mufflers temporarily directly to the headers with some slip on clamps. It's loud as hell! The deep rumble at 800 RPM was vibrating **** off of my washer. Will running the mufflers further back make much of a difference? So much for my sneaky sleaper hopes. I'm running a TFS stage 1 cam, a touch more than an E303. the loping seems more like a stage 2 or F303 and the idle quality is very noticeable. Vacuum? I have no idea, I see a gauge in the future...Maybe some tuning can get under control. So much for my sneaky sleaper hopes. Overall I'm still real happy with the setup so far, it's just gonna take a lot of tweaking to get it how i want it.
