Hey man long time no type. I was wondering what size cowl do you have? I'm needing a cowl to compensate for my new combo. I hate to get rid of my SS hood it's brand new!

The hood is by Glasstek and has a 4" rise; and that just does clear the FI unit. I would think with a drop top air cleaner you should be able to get your Edelbrock under a stock hood (?). Might have to fool with the linkage and get a 90 degree fuel connection, but Edelbrock has those. If not, probably a 2" would suffice.

Glasstek (630-978-9897) are the only ones making a glass hood currently for a 67 that's any good. I hear Goodmark is but there's no pricing or availability yet - I think they're fishing.

Car's looking real good - how do you like your B&M?

ShannonT, you got any pics of those aftermarket headlights? I haven't seen any and might consider some for my '72 around tax refund time next year.

That's good! Aftermarket Headlights? I looked at Chad's signature and thought, wait a minute, Chad does not have a 72! So I had to go have a look at ShannonT's post again. Laughed till the tears came I did!
I must say though, I have more respect for women that go the other way and have a reduction done. The reason being is there is not one man on this site that would have a 1/16th of an inch removed from his "you know what",no matter how much his back hurt!

I laugh every single time I see that, in every single thread.

I like your car Shannon. Takes me back to when I was 16.

They were in the neighbor hood of $3400.00 with all the extra hardware for installation. They were PROFESSIONALLY built right there in Baton, Rouge. I have a bunch of friends (Hooters, Strippers) who had good luck with this particular installer. BEST money ever spent, almost important as my LASIX. They will be on display on the Cruise the Coast in Oct. Brady's 74' has a great set not OEM, that will be on display also www.turbocharged.net Haven't got around to posting any pics on my site......but there in the near future. Hope to see you guys there!

Dale I love my B&M. I hated the fact that I had to lose the console to fit it, but once it was gone, I felt there was less clutter in the car.
Well my drop down Edelbrock does fit under the SS hood. My new combo is a Merlin 509ci built by Bill Mitchell's team (I know my combo has nothing more than a cam breakin on it, I've been hooked on forced induction since riding in Bradys TT Z-28). The link at the bottom will give you the specs on the 509. Due to funds I will be installing the Merlin with the carb set up for a while. I'm still deciding on the EFI system right now. I like the Super Ram set up, just not sure it will handle the 1600hp air and fuel system that's in the near future (well, I wouldn't say near)
