Any body know the weight of the stock hood, a FG hood and a CF hood? I know the stock one seemed to weigh about a ton when I had it off last winter. If no one knows then I'll weigh it this winter.

It sure would help the handling if we could get weight out of the front end.

Even though my 'stang DS is not balanced too well there is no way I would go back to the 2 pce DS. Santa is bringing me an Aluminium FMS DS :lol:

I agree with Chris but would go one step further and not mould in the openings for the Cossie vents. These things are expensive and not everyone may want them or be able to afford them. With a plain XR hood it would be too easy to cut holes for the vents if you wanted. Also, FM has a good point on t...

Yeah, the "new" reservation system sucks - I was on hold for 30 minutes & finally gave up. I'm OK with this place if as you say were all in one location and we have some decent light in the car park. The backroads to Carlisle from there are fun. Also I support having the MCA meeting ea...

Nope, don't think so - the compression ratio would be way too high.

The Saab 900 rad will plumb in closer to stock Thanks for the info but Sock just phoned me an the SAAB is 3x the price of the VW. I don't need to drop the rad very far for my IC setup as its mounted behind the rad & has vertical airflow rather than facing forward like normal folks do it - so al...

C'mon AlexD, I know your $$ is low at the moment but he's a Merkur owner and could buy a complete car for the price of the Rapido head!!

Yes if it is balanced properly. But then this would fix your current problem too if your runnning a 1 piece shaft. I have the same problem on my T5 conversion as I'm running an old crappy unbalanced 'stang 1 piece shaft. I will be replacing this with with an aluminium 'stang shaft this winter. Wilky

Lopts of folks have done this and most seem to have either made up their own custom bracket or modified the A/C bracket. It has been stated that you can use the bracket from a 94 Ranger but this seems to be complicated by the serpentine belt set up and the need to also use the ranger alternator. I h...

Wilky speaking of... Did you ever get your vents? Nah, they deny all knowledge & it's a bit difficult to break legs when your 3,000 km away (but one of these days :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: ....................). Anyway, I decided to make my own custom vents to line up with my vertical air f...
