Man that's a really nice intake. I wish they made one that was smaller!

Yeah that's why I made all my own stuff, but it's no where near as nice as the pro built stuff.

Mine will run up to 220 or so and stay there while cruising. I just run good full synthetic oil. I have just the one 96 pass cooler. No room for anything else!

I only have the 96 pass. My intake goes through the fan shroud where my stock cooler should be.

That should be just fine. I'd go that route if mine wasn't setup how it is.

I installed a oil thermostat and re-routed all my oil lines/aka "Plumber's Nightmare' :lol:
just need to fab up a new bracket to help support the intake :wink:

You almost got it! I used hollow tube on my support and I hate it. I just smashed the ends flat and drilled holes there to go over studs. Needs to be beefier. Maybe you could find some solid round stock to use?
I also went up to my carb base and I think I would find a way to make the support shorter if I was to do it again. Keep things as ridged as possible.

Heim is the way to go. And the proper silicon intake boot. I recently put a 4 ply boot on mine and its floppy. My old one wasn't like that. It was 5 ply if I remember right, but after 10 years of being on there it was a little hard.
