Hey, Rob!  How about a cowl-induction scoop with a box under it leading air from the cowl to the carbs?

 
No way. Cowl induction is way too overused, I try to avoid typical like the plague. I think Eelco has an excellent point though.

Please explain what you mean by Kustom Kulture. Like hot rod, street rod, rat rod, custom, they mean different things to different people.

Rob, sign me up for the shaker scoop. What do you think of mounting it on the carbs and inserting a cool looking mesh screen?

 

I'm not sure how much a real live Allison shakes though.  You might wanna' put in some monster rubber motor mounts. You know, like the kind they "earthquake proof" a skyscraper foundation with.  :P

 

I am kicking around that very thing with the shaker, but for a drag car I want something that pulls more air. So I'm still looking at options.

 

Due to space considerations there's not much room for motor mount bushings. I cant really raise the engine much and I'm too far along to lower it. It is what it is.

 

Thanks much for the compliments guys. More soon.

Averages range for left handedness from 6-9% of the global populations. That's an awful lot of backwards people.  :lol:

Yep. I think Tom's on the right track.
