Stupid question but what are you using to keep your hood closed? I noticed you deleted the heater and the metal around it which I think looks awesome but I gotta wonder whats keeping that hood closed lol...

Good question, Rocco. It's a race car - so I was able to use IE's fiberglass hood, pinned in 4 corners (fully removable, not hinged . . . and easily blown-over in the wind, too (chuckle)).

Very nice Ken!

Could you tell me more about the valve cover and crankcase ventilation setup?

Thanks, Mike. Okay - so the breather setup might be over-kill... but hey.

The valve cover is from an early model, not sure which (?). Fittings were welded at Groma (strategically located to reduce oil splashing into the hoses), then crinkle coated by a local vendor. I got the catch can with breather at Summit or Pegasus a few years ago, could not find the same one now but a search found this: http://tinyurl.com/2ac6pcq. The can came with smaller AN fittings, but with a unibit and nimble fingers I was able to fit the large fittings into the plastic.
