shaker hood scoop

It is do-able, but not cost justifiable. I did the work myself, thera re a few things to consider.

I'm Packing a windsor 408, so my deck height is litle high, so I have t cut the fiberglass air cleaner down to size.
You may find a conflict with the hood braces, I cut into them during mockup. Then had to relocate then further back.
I have a 4 degree rear slope to the engine, getting the shaker level, centered, and to fit under the hood was a a challange.

I'm out of paint now and got the engine running yesterday, I should have the hood on 'sometime' in the future. email if you have specific questions. RikFrey@comcast.net

Looks like some good work RIK.  You guys simply amaze me with your skills.

Thanks, It looks good. My project is at a standstill until some family matters get cleared up. It's sitting on jack stands patiently waiting on me to come back. I have a 302 in mine, I've looked at after market scoops and some are affordable, but I want to finish the back half of the car before I go back to the front. Thanks again and keep us posted on your project.

For those interested - here is the finished car...
