Does the intake sound any different? Is there outside air directly being fed into it?
Correction,  it depends on how you orientate the hose in the inner fender. Originally I had about a 9" piece of hose heading towards the driver. But after a hard day of driving,  noticed the fender in the engine bay gets heat soaked.  So I changed out the flex hose for a shorter piece and orientated it towards the headlight.

When facing the hose towards the driver,  the intake noise was a lot louder than facing towards the headlight. You can still hear the blowoff valve,  but not as much whistling from the intake.

Added a set of Singular Motorsports hood vents. Has anyone fabricated a set of vent covers for these? Concern about rain and snow since mine is a daily driver? Have a second hood but would prefer not to switch back and forth.

Millsj and I toyed with the idea of possibly making something out of vinyl/canvas that was held in place with rare earth magnets, but that would require that the vent affixing screws be magnet-able and they would only be used when the car is parked....pretty much a non-starter.

The aluminum (non magnetic) hood does make things a little more complicated.

If you used srong enough magnets you could probably bond them under the hood and then just stick a cover on the outside.  Of if the cover isn't magnetic do the reverse.  Put some metal under the hood and magnets on the cover.

Over the past couple of months or so:

- 4 new tires
- Rebuilt shifter
- Stubby antenna and chrome fuel lid
- FM Little Enchilada
- Changed all oils, including diff, transmission and power steering
- Flushed and changed coolant, thermostat and hoses
- Changed LP power steering hoses
- Valve cover gasket and PCV valve
- Spark plugs and wires
- FM cross-flow radiator and stage II fan kit

I was thrilled that the car started right up and worked perfectly after I did the above!  It's a great feeling... and a relief  shockeyes!

This weekend I installed Hydra, and I am even more thrilled that it started right up on the first crank!  

All I have left is install the boost gauge, put the under pan and bits and pieces together and start tweaking things.  I took the radio out as part of installing the Hydra and ordered a new head, so I'll be installing that as well when it comes.  

After that I think I'll stop for a while, I haven't driven the car much since I got it!!
