How do you have it mounted to the throttle bodies? What did you do with the air temp sensor?

i made a plate to mount to the body and i drilled a hole out for the sensor and mounted it to the back side of the plate.

Got any part number guy? That looks better than alot of these high dollar Hyper charger thingy's and Barrons I see. What did you make the plate out of? Was-is it something easily procureable?

This gives me ideas. Can you give us some more details on the plate and installation? I was thinking of using a K&N with a chrome top that looks similar to that.....

Can we see pics of the mounting plate? Do you have a lathe or something or is this a ******* fab job?

Vulcan Acehole I think the PC statment would be "southern engineering". lol I'm with you all though. If I spend say $60 or 80 to do this and I can wash the element to me its a bounus. I'm not particularly worried about HP gains.

That's a really nice looking job! Did you add any fuel control like a TFI or PC III? If not you're prolly gonna be running really lean with all that new air & might start pinging a little. I put the Caddman system on my 1600 w/K&N filters & added a TFI to richen the fuel mix. The fuel & air gave a nice little boost to the giddyup! :biggrin:
