    slc air filter assembly race tail

    a couple more things on my fabrication of this piece. The tubing is a 4'' j-bend [diesel exhaust] which is mild steel. I could not find a maf boss that was steel they were all aluminum. We flattened out the curve in it that was for the 4'' tubing took the thickness of material that we removed...

    slc air filter assembly race tail

    I looked around at other builds to see how everyone was handling the race tail lack of room for the air filter assembly. I then looked at gm's requirements for my ls 376, 10'' from the throttle body for the maf and mounted in a straight 6'' run of 4'' tubing and realized it was a pain in the...

    Heat shielding

    I got my firewall heat shield done, then built removable panels with shielding on them on either side of the engine. The right side pad is done but is waiting final trimming due to cooler lines and shifter cables.

    slc rear sway bar

    It took a little bit but here is what I came up with for the rear sway bar. I started with the lightest bar 155lb and should have great adjustability I have used this set up before and have had great success with it. I am running the grazziano so with additional bracing things are tight but it...

    slc oil coolers

    I realize after running my gt-40's that heat in the ass end is a problem. I saw that RCR offered some louvers that take up part of the rear glass or lexan on the clam shell on the left and right sides, narrowing the rear glass. they are louvers and looked pretty good. I imagine they let out a...

    slc rear scoop

    Trying to figure out where to pull cold air from on the back has been a challenge the only solution after looking at it for a long time was to install a scoop and I will build a cold air box.

    slc oil coolers

    Thanks Howard and thanks for the video of your car tracked at COTA. It is my understanding that the grazzianos have some sort of internal pump in them hence the fittings or plugs that came in it for circulating the oil. It was either loop it on the transaxle or send the lines to the cooler and...

    slc oil coolers

    I used the same coolers as use on my 427 cobras. Thanks to a cue from Cam for 27 dollars I got shields from ebay for the grazziano, blasted them and they are like new. I am waiting on a 120 degree fitting for the transaxle cooler.

They seem to all say the same thing you are down there for a whole week you only run the whole course on race day, practice is broken up to three separate days with three separate sections and they say plan on 10.k to run...
