    just as the title says ................ let's see how you guys are sealing your carbs to the hood for cold air with either a cold air pan or box .i've got some ideas after walking thru the pits at the PSCA race like using thick piece of lexan or sheet metal

    i'm going to be pulling the t/ram and installing a old holley 750dp and holley strip dominator and use it for right now . eventually might step up in carb size some since my motor can easily handle 1320cfm from the dual 660's

    .

    I have a ugly home made one I can take a picture of next time I'm at shop.

    Just a thought, do not think that a dual carb total cfm and a single carb will be the same.
    On my little Camaro motor I run dual 1050's, but when I had the single, it ran best with a 1150.
    The 1300 was way too much and it didn't like it.

    do you have any other pics with different angles of that set up ?? ........... it looks like the air pan is feeding the K&N extreme top only ,correct ??

    Here are a couple more pic's. All the pan is some scrap alumium with a carb bell attached, and moroso airpan foam(supposedly fire proof). I don't have enough hood clearence for a filter so I just use the top, when I'm towing or storing the car.

    I had that pan sitting under a Harwood scoop on my old dragster. Filter may sit a little too deep in the pan so take that into consideration. I think that pan is at least 6" deep.
