My buddy is running the VFN WS9 hood. It's a bolt on hood. He is running a supervic with a 4500tb and a nitrous outlet kit.

Sorry but I have no pics.

He'll have to cut the hood brace in the back with any hood that is bolt-on. I bet you had to cut the cowl. I hate pin-on hoods. They're a PITA. Had one and going back to bolt on even if I do have to cut. If I were you, cut the hood and see if you can get it to fit. Your problem is the Super Victor which is taller than a Victor Jr. Check out VFN's website and see what they have for 4th gen T/A's. I know it's not a ton of stuff. That's why the camaro is nicer for aftermarket hoods. Tons of hoods out there for it but that's because the WS6 hood is already nice so no one ever swaps it out.

the cowl is mainly what i had to cut. i had my superhawk hood on the car with my super vic and 4500 throttle body. i only had to trim a piece off of the back edge of the hood that was maybe 2 or 3 inches by 6 inches or so. i didn't like how the hood was right on the throttle body though so i changed to the 4 inch sloped vfn.

That hood in your sig pic is awesome. Looks great with the cowl and keeps the WS6 look.

Any more pics of the VFN 4" sloped hood.
Does the whole hood extend to the windshield or just the scoop.

I was running my stock hood with a Scorpion 4150 with a Super Vic. Ofcource you'll have to cut. The Scorpion 4150 is the shortest 4150 TB there is and I wanted to use a Super Vic. I rolled the dice and it fit. I run a WS9 Outlaw now, but fyi, no other 4150 will fit with the Super Vic with a stock hood............

So the ws9 outlaw hood works with some room for air to get to tb, did you have to cut outlaw hood to fit, what air cleaner you Running...

I'm guessing he's running a carb hat like me so you'll have to cut the cowl no matter what. Hood, a pin-on hood will fit without cutting. I know the bolt-on hood, the brace on the bottom will have to be cut for me to get mine fit.

Do you have to cut wiper out of passenger side?

I didn't have to. It was close but I was able to do it without cutting. I'm running an Extreme Velocity carb hat on top of mine. If you're gonna cut, try to go around the wiper or get as close as possible without cutting into it. You'll be ok. We just had to cut more off after it was mounted because the throttle was what we were having clearance issues with and that wasn't a big problem.

Where did you mount your IAT Sensor and your MAP Sensor?

Phoenix H.O.

the IAT is tied off to the side behind my driver side headlight with a zip tie and the MAP is in the back of the intake.

Did you drill and tap the intake for the MAP Sensor?
My Super Victor only has a 3/8" port on the pass side, that I'll use for the power brakes.
Thanks

I still need to drill and tap the intake somewhere.
Or can I use a barb fitting off the Fast 4150 TB.

I just noticed your plumbing power brakes, I'd drill and tap another hole.. Easy enough.. Or use a cheap vac pump setup..

Or do what the mustang guys do and get the manifold from Home Depot and run it off the 3/8 intake hole, and use the different outlets to feed all of your vacuum needs...It accepts 1/8 or 1/4 NPT fittings and use a flare on the other end...Done. Clean. and no drilling of any holes in the intake, which is stupid.

I'm not familiar with the Home Depot manifold.
Do you have a picture of it?
What is it basically used for?
Thanks for the info.

There's only one tap on a super Vic, I'd never share the map with something as large a draw as the booster.. I'd give its own source in the manifold.. Diff strokes for diff folks...

Here's something similar to what he's talking bout

Thanks, looks like a brass adapter block.
Yeah, I would like for the map to have it's own port also, Right now I have the map coming off the back of my 4150 tb. Just under the blades of the tb.
I hope this works. I'm sure I'll have to go with manual brakes, before it's said and done. Just trying to get the car down the track this year.
Thanks

Kind of on the same topic, but what 4500 EFI TB would you recommend? Which one is going to be the best bet for the money?
