I think the anteaters are cool too, but pretty pricey.
$250 for fg and $550 for cf. Then you have to buy the airbox too. That's at least $100 through tuffpaw.

The top one above is just $109 and the black one is $195.
I totally understand, I have the equipment and knowledge to make my own airbox so that would offset the price for me, but 250 is still quite a lot. Nice ride you have though.

I need to order a converter and rear end gears so a scoop is pretty far down on the "parts needed" list. I was going to order the converter today from BTE but got busy at work and didn't get the chance.

I wouldn't use that edelbrock pro flow or whatever they call em now. They have a thin foam filter like thingy in them and I seen a guys car back fire one time and melted that crap all over the carb...been a long time ago but turned me off of those things.

If it were me i'd go with a butterfly scoop, throw away the elements and hook the linkage 1 to 1 on the buterflys.
RPC is the source for these and can be bought for about $150.00 plus shipping if you have a source which i can hook you up with.

Here's the pics. of their scoops. Of course they have a million other pretty good items also, if you have adobi reader you can look at their cattalog.

Thanks for all the opinions. I bought this one yesterday off of a guy on RJ.


I might still put a Hilborn style on it for comparison or certian events.

That would be awesome!! lol :lol:

That sorta reminds me of a post I read on here somewhere that was talking about Ron's toilet injection.
Some smart alleck said they tried to run a toilet on their car but the lid wouldn't stay open all the time and it sloshed water all over the motor when he hit the brakes...lol

I bet it would "load up" when idling and you would have to "clean it out" with a plunger.
