I like the look of the K&N better .

And will the Filter Lid not let in more Cooler Air from the Cowl Induction !?

I would think the K&N would give me a boost in performance. I painted the other one black and it looks really nice on there now too, so I can swap em out from time to time.

Re: Engine bay pictures

I would go as close to OEM on the air cleaner as possible. You did a nice job cleaning up the engine bay. Mine looks like a circus came to town a parked in my engine bay.

Re: Engine bay pictures

Liking your detail alot ! Great taste all around. I am doing a similar look and hope it comes out as nice. Yes the air breather, what to do. I'm not there yet either. The K&N looks pretty non, I like it. The other idea to powder coat the alum and leave the strips polished might do it too...

I agree the contrast with everything else looked real nice

Re: Engine bay pictures

Thanks for posting photos of your engine bay. I like having mine set up so when I open the hood I get a nice little extra buzz..

I went with a vintage look... That's a 454 by the way.

I'm trying that air cleaner heat shield, its suppose to route the hot radiator air away from the air cleaner. Probably nothing but snake oil.. I remember Smokey making something like that for his Chevelle or one of his Pontiacs..


Very cool thread thanks!!

I Like the vintage look too Is that a shutoff valve for the heater core ?
Does it keep the temps down inside and do you need one on the return line as well ?

Yes that's for the heater core. I had to removed the whole factory heater and AC when I first got my car, it was shot and frankly took up too much room for what it did. Thank you!
