    Looking good.

     

    What do you think of those adjustable strut mounting plates?  They look like the ones of TM i see advertised occasionally.

    Did you leave enough room for the hoses off the front of the lid?

    will look good either fg or fgx  ,, fgx is longer I am surprised it quite low assume would stick out more still have thermal plates to put on between heads and blower manifold

    I reckon a small custom one blended in, just enough to cover it, no more.

    Could be right Cav but at least it’s only a bonnet. Easy to swap out later if needed to go std bonnet?

    if you read stuff from the states where 95% of the ctsv lids are , they are not as efficient, and I think the intercooler brick is smaller so a loss in power to some degree but depends on what else has been done to motor

    Its a smaller brick but has better flow. The fastest LSA’s run the CTSV lid.

    Yeah I’ve heard both sides of the story, not sure if i want to use this with my vk to keep it under bonnet or go with a 2 in reverse cowl and leave the standard lid

    If you aren’t building a “Class” car is even a minimal loss of power such a concern, whatever lid you run you’ll have adequate power in such a light car…

    Personally I’d keep it under a stock bonnet if that were an option.

    Yeah that’s in. The guys over there come factory with them. Back in the day the ZL1 lids were cheap, like $250 as apposed to $700 odd now, so they all changed to them.

    But in later years, guys have been porting the insides etc and actually found that despite the smaller brick they are actually better, but more Ugly IMO

    BUT its got more clearance.

    I wonder if some one has modified the intercooler inlet and outlet moved to the back of the zl1 lid like the ctsv lid without using the ctsv lid
