Here is my new RamAir box for the hood scoop. I made it from my old dropdown breather assy. All I did was seal up the cheap air filter with duck tape and glue a seal to the top. Then installed a 10" x 6" K&N filter inside it.

I've read that a good RamAir system is usually worth 10-15 HP, but you can't prove it on a Dyno.
There's a lot of air caught in the scoop because it bounces around a little now and I had to do reduce my fuel pressure and float level down a little to allow for the added pressure on the bowl vents. I'll have to run it at the strip to see if it really helps. I only have to lift off the outer ring to change it to a normal breather.

Thanks for the compliments.

Nope. Still playing with the big fat #8020 Stealth. MAYBE later on.

Thats a great looking setup. Did you use a regular drop base for a 14" filter? The use of the 6" tall filter really pays off in increased surface area. Excluding the pleats a 10 x 6 filter has 188 sq. in. of surface area whereas a 14 x 3 has only 132.

I used a cheap old 14" Summit drop base. The K&N filter sits on the upper flat of the base just above the carb.
