    :D Ok, hoping to see how many different types of engine compartment setup's people have come up with. To keep it stock, clear up space, make it perty!! After your pic's, list a quick description of car and engine setup.

    Drop a pic of your engine setup and let's see what's out there.

    Note to self, cleaning the engine bay with fire extinguisher isn't very effective...

    thermostat housing

    if you look in the first picture posted, the location of the thermostat housing neck is straight up into my monte carlo bar.....anybody have suggestions, with the serpentine setup and monte carlo bar in mind ( I can always just loose the monte carlo bar but I don't want to! hehe), as to what I can do to clear this? I really want to use the cool flex hose but don't think it will clear with the current setup. Thanks.

    Move the bar forward or get a adjustable housing on a 45 degree. The Adjustables rotate and use a O-Ring to seal.

    I can't move the bar due to the closeness of the A/C compressor. I would like to get a different housing but don't know of any that would fit. I even think the forty five straight forward T-stat will hit the bar for the alternator on the serpentine setup. I have been looking, not hard, but haven't seen any yet. Know of any multipositional ones?

    CSR Performance makes one. I think they make a 45* one. I know for a fact they make a 90* one.

    Where did you get the bars that mount from the shock tower to your firewall, and fender well to fender well? Awesome looking engine setup too!

    That's one of the nice things about a MII conversion. I also hid the wires in the fenders so that cleans it up some too.

    Easy plug access.
