    Cooling and airflow?

    Think this will provide enough airflow to keep the SC cool

    Figured pics out in 2nd post!

    THAT worked!

    Ok the 2nd one is one hell of a chin spoiler!
    It is actually a lower valance flipped over and bolted to the other lower valance.

    Pay no attention to the gas can! Project cars!

    so with all that air flow... think I'll have any problem keeping the 94 SC underneath cool?
    I am thinking... RAM AIR DUCTS AND A BIG IC!?

    I think it was already getting plenty of air with that huge opening on the grill.

    Well, I think the gas can in the second pic would really reduce air flow so I would remove it.

    Should be able to dedicate (section off) some direct airflow to the IC and also to the Airbox, right from the shark's mouth.
    And STILL have PLENTY of airflow for the radiator.

    Why not?

    My dad has a tiller gas tank bolted to the windshield of his 48 Willys jeep cause the fuel pump went out and he didn't have time to buy a new one. Gravity feed is where it's at!

    Actually that tank is part of an expirimental "FOGGER" style power adder.

    At high speed with all the airflow it sucks a perfectly tuned fine mist of gasoline out and it FOGS the air coming into the engine bay so it is already pre-mixed/saturated with fuel PRIOR to being sucked into the motor through the carb. It runs up to a dedicated intake tube, like a "RAM AIR" set up.

    Truth is neither one of those is my car, just pics I have.
    The blue one was on E-Bay, it had a very extensive write up. It had done the Cannonball Run/One Lap of America competion and some other stuff, well documented car.
    The yellow one is a great guy off the Torino site, Andy.
    He is a Gran Torino guru!
    Gonna meet him this fall as he helps me with the TorinoBird.
