I'm trying to decide what to put on mine. Two Carter 4-bbls on top of a 6-71 supercharger. Would you guys run scoops or small round air filters?

The scoops are mine, the car belongs to my dad. I offered to let him use them but he likes his stacks better.

Not to hi-jack.... Any air restriction running the small filters such as below on a V-8?

If you are a gear head, everything you see gets run through the "where can I use that" filter.

The three scoops resting on my tri-power TV are old Chris Craft pieces, cast brass and nickle plated.

The pair are also old wooden boat parts. Not as heavy and not sure on the brand. I can see a pair of these on a Track T with an open sided hood and two dueces on a flathead.

Someday I'll find a use for them.

I took 31Modelo out today to a few of my parts stash spots (read old boat junkyards!). What would you know he comes around the corner with a dorade vent! would make a killer scoop . Tons of stuff ready for the adaptation of feeble minds. Those ones up a few posts with the Chris Craft stuff I believe are Perko and may still be made new.

Not vintage but fabricated. A buddy and I just finished this up yesterday. The center is from a used Holley air cleaner. The end plates we made from 1/4" 6061 and some motorcycle velocity stacks.

You gotta love a Rogue air cleaner/flame arrestor!



The classic flame arrestor.



4 bbl Nicson's




2 bbl and 4 bbl V8 aircleaners.




The classic Badger air scoop that actually came with a filter element...a small piece of a standard round air cleaner.
