  1. 33' Hot Rod louvers

    Always liked the old look of louvers and I notice the NEW generation hot rod has louvers on the hood sides. I like that,,, have been searching, not real hard, for a way to add them to my 33' hood sides. Maybe even the hood and could even do the trunk. My 1st thought was just cosmetic non functional and was thinking fiberglass to make an easier install. But it looks like the new gen louvers are actually functional. I know there is a huge amount of talent out there,,, has anybody done this and have ...

  3. Any recomendations for a supercharger

    The one I am leaning towards is the Weiand 174.

    Do any members have any experience with this make, installation tips or are there other super chargers out there ...

    It will never be right down onto the frame as one of the vertical variables is how you install the firewall relative to the frame. Regardless, what I had done with mine based on conversations with Tony Zullo and others is #1-
