My questions are, does it clear the stock ss hood and latch (minor trimming ok) and what upper cover is usable with this setup? I think bmr sells one? Or do we need one from an LT1 car?
You got it man most people use the BMR and modify it for the setup, or they make their own support or brackets...

Yes it will clear even a stock hood like a formula or z28 flat style

There will be minor trimming similar to the non ac

I am still on the fence about this. Do you have any results or improvement numbers through the 1/8? I'm running a heads up class in the 1/8 is why I ask.

ET from 1/4 to 1/8 is around 1.56-1.57 conversion for NA car...

So dropping .3 tenths in 1/4 will be about .3/1.57 or .2ths in the 1/8

Hope this helps

I still like this a lot. I'm still thinking of using it as a stop-gap until I do the procharger. I'll end up hacking up the front clip anyway.

But this would still be the best for a 400+cid motor...

Just curious on how much trimming is needed on the radiator and how people are adjusting the radiator.

Have to nip the top frame of the radiator as sticks up around 5/8"...then it needs to be racked back towards the rear of the car slightly...but aftermarket radiator it will slip right in...just depends on setup and some massaging to get it in

Shoot me message any other questions I have some pics
