|Well, I got the mold completed, and now my first hood scoop. With just a little work to it and some paint it will soon be complete. I only wish I had the time around here to complete it quickly, but work must come first. Now that have it on and have been running around with it on I have found out some new stuff about it.|
Having a 6.2 L. diesel with a 3 speed auto transmission, I normal can only top out at 70-71 mph max., Well for the first time I have been getting as high at 75 mph. Here is what I think is happening:
In general, I feel I should see better gas mileage, cooler A/C, and cooler air flow across the engine.
I still have to get it painted, but first I need to sand down the corners and edges, and get some small air bubbles filled in.
Here how is looks at this time (Nov. 10th, 1997), Remember, it's still not complete.
|If you look carefully, you will see something missing. I normally
use Rain-X on the windshield and have not used the wipers for some time
now. Now with the new scoop on I will have to see how well the Rain-X
is going to work.
I will also be adding some sort of wire grill to the scoop like it is below.
