Hey guys. It's been a while scince i've posted, and have something on my mind. I have been driving my 55 chevy here in Las Vegas,Nv. The car has a 70' 454, iron oval port heads. 11.25:1 compression, comp xs282s cam, torker intake, holley 750dp, 3.73 gears, th400 trans, fenderwell headers, aluminum 3 core radiator, electric fan. blah blah blah It runs on 91 pump gas, but i cut/ fill the tank with 100 if im gonna really run it. Like i've said, its never boiled over or ran "HOT" stabilizes about 190/200. I absolutely LOVE the big block under the hood, the power is addicting. BUT as you might have guessed it can get pretty warm around these parts this time of year. It really only comes out at night or the morning, It doesnt overheat... but no A/C, residual heat etc, you know...Las Vegas I've encountered some fuel boil issues when running low speed around town at first i though it was simply loading-up. But on shutdown i can hear perculating in the carb, and its a bit tough to start after running into a store etc. I'm gonna try a phelonic or wood spacer under the carb, see if it helps. I've also noticed the car runs alittle warmer on the freeway (not much maybe 10-15* warmer at the most) Basicly I've noticed it get pretty F'in hot under hood, Especially with the headers. I'm looking for ways to get some heat out of the engine compartment. I really love the look of the cast aluminum hood scoop on these, but i dig Louvers too. I could go either way. I'm guessing that hood louvers probally work pretty well at cooling things down, But have no experiance with these nor do I with a bolt on hood scoop. You guys with either one, Chime off with how they helped you and if you have any gripes lemme know too. at $3 a pop louvers can get pricey, But its all in the name of performance. How many would you recomend? I'll be putting the car in primer this fall, so i wanna get any sheet metal stuff done soon. It's a long post I know Heres a few pics to show the flavor or my ride. Im planning on Grey epoxy primer by the way. Thanks!- one HOT ride in vegas.
