I changed from a Vortech Enclosure to a carb hat. At 15 psi of boost, I was at what I considered the limits of efficiency of the carb enclosure I was using, so went to a Extreme Velocity carb hat. This will give me easy access to the carb for minor adjustments and jet changes as the blend of E85 makes seasonal changes. I plan on upping the boost to 20 psi, and to be extra safe during our very hot Tennessee Summers, plan on adding water/meth injection to it. Will only use it when above 90F outside, and going over 15 psi. Will use a dual nozzle variable rate system, and inject before the YSi and after it. If I was using the old enclosure, the meth would cover the carb as much as go into it.

I have only had it on the dyno 1 time since I installed the YSi, and switched to E85, and it made 825 RWHP at 6,400 rpms. I was going to make up the SC to carb tube to feed the hat from the front, but want to have enough room to install a turbo waste gate in the piping, then I can pulley it to get 15-18 psi real early, and stay there till it shifts.

One of the other things I plan on doing is setting up my 2nd carb to gas. With the carb hat, this will allow me to swap carbs, and run it on gas and water/meth if I am going to go some where that does not have E85, and it is not practical to carry extra 5 gal cans. I wanted to go on the Hot Rod Power Tour the last couple of years, but not enough E85 on the route.

Sure will be glad when Spring gets here.

White letter tires look amazing on an Bird. It looks like they belong.

I love my V8, but I'd love it more if all 8 cylinders worked. (they do now)

At first, I was against putting white lettered tires on my car because I thought they'd look too cheesy. But then I saw someone's bird here with the same tires on and I couldn't help but say to my self, "Wow, those look good on there. They look nice n' meaty!" Nice and meaty, like a muscle car, especially since I went up a size in cross section and aspect.

SC drives & rides nice on these WLs , But they can't take the torque from the 96 And the SC can be hard on them as well
