    Sealing scoop to carb

    I am installing a aero scoop on my car wanted to know if i can use 3/16 aluminum plate or is it to heavy to mount directly to carb thanks.

    That sounds heavier than necessary too me. On my injection engine i'm useing 1/16" tk., because that's the material i already have, but .040 would be tk. enough.

    I used 3/16 on my door car and then crushed the foam about 20% with the hood to get a good seal. I was afraid the lighter stuff would flex.
