After Speed Week got cancelled, Pork Pie had some spare time on his hands. He used it to good advantage and stopped by the RODGE MAHAL. While here, he gave me some pointers on my streamlining efforts for the race car. While I made adjustments he designed a scoop and made a cardboard example. In the past few weeks I made the inner ducting and am now building the outer piece. I'm looking forward to testing them at El Mirage in a few weeks.  :cheers: Wayno

Bill, the throttle body is 18" from the inlet opening. The internal ducting is the one picture I posted. No turning vanes. Wayno
