      I think I should be able to do the install this weekend. I moved the car into the shop last night and have all my parts ready to go. I picked up that Sceptre 2x 180° intake that was posted somewhere earlier and grabbed 2 Summit brand conical filters. I know I'll have to get creative with the water outlet and upper radiator hose. The only thing that may hold me up is if I have to machine the intake to match my heads. My block has been decked pretty hard and intakes are always tight. Sometimes wallowing the holes works, otherwise I have to machine the face. Heads are NOT coming off to have them done...

      Anyone know off the top of their heads what the intake to intake face angle is on a 440? is it 45° per head for 90°?

      Has anyone ever skipped the intake gasket and used something like UltraGrey or some fuel resistant silicone? I suspect the thermal expansion would cause a lot of movement and disturb a purely chemical seal. I'm tempted to machine the intake for LS style intake O-rings. The valley is blocked off with a 440Source valley tray.

      Don't open up the intake bolt holes, the ports between the head and intake won't line up correctly. Mill the intake if you have to.

        Looks good. How does it feel in terms of weight difference? Maybe half of the stock hood?
        I don't remember if this was a bolt on design or to be used with pins.

        It is a bolt on hood, but they recommend pins, so I am going to install some flush mount pins. Just for piece of mind..
        Half the weight of the Steel hood.

          So, how did you all deal with pedal throw? I am only able to get to 60% on the floor. I'm looking at welding an extension to the top of the lever where the cable hooks up.
