Yeah shipping to me is a killer, not looking forward to buying a new hood and paying the shipping on it thatís for sure.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

I've been working every day on the truck. Stuck the transmission back in it yesterday. I pulled the pan and everything looked good. I'm waiting on a few fuel fittings and line that I will have by the end of the week. Plan on firing it up by Sunday! Yay. Still a bunch of work to do but I'm getting there.

Thank you Sir! That's the plan. I did get it running Sunday, I was trying to get a video up but PBucket isn't cooperating. Imagine that.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

I wonder if one of these would be junk? Was thinking just for the track if a guy runs open carb to keep small rocks kicked up by the front tires from going into the carb.

Its interesting that he claims to have picked up horsepower and torque. Might be worth a try at $30 each...

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

That one looks like a nice piece, just not sure how I’d like the vents exposed though.

Another option but maybe too high a guy on YB posted up when I asked about screens.

I think a marine Flame Arrestor would be pretty restrictive. I remember on my old 565 i tried a tall K&N with the filter top. I lost 30 hp on the dyno.

Thatís what Iím scared of is losing power, I have K&N with a filter top, some say run it dry, engine builder said to lean up the air bleed some of running a filter.

Trouble with no filter is main track I go to doesnít have paved pits itís sand and gravel so they get pretty dusty, so an actual filter would be nice.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

I picked up a set of these for my truck, not sure if you are still running the stock hinges as past pictures showed, but these would be a nice touch under your hood, just saying
