Just recently I put a fiberglass cowl induction hood on my '91 RS and was trying to think of something that I could do appearance wise that would look vintage like on a late '60's and early '70's muscle car. Then my dad told me of a truck he saw that had a cowl induction hood on it. What they had done was took and put cowl induction badges like what came on the 1970 SS Chevelle. So once I get the time I plan on ordering these badges and install them in the same reletive location as they came on the '70 SS Chevelle's. So what do y'all think good idea or not. Any other idea are welcome too.

I would personally use number badges to show off the cubic inches right on the side of the cowl. I think it was Modern Day Muscle that had them. I'm sure other websites do, too.

id go with slip jack because on the chevelle it had a vaccume door which made it cowl induction. not to be mean but just cause you have a cowl hood does not mean you have cowl induction!
tearin up the streets every day of the week makin that 4 speed pay itself off!

Yeah it's fully functional!! The back of the hood is open so air can flow in, it's not one of those fake scoops on top of a stock hood. It's the real deal. So yeah it is cowl industion, and the reason that I'm thinking of going with this is because I want to eventually go with a 350 in place of my 305, so I don't want to give away what is under the hood.

Yeah I thought that might be an issue. When you slap a cowl inducted hood on the car you are beginning to erase the fine line between "sleeper" and "hey, look at me!"

So I thought you were after the latter, thus I suggested the badges.

No the hood I got is all business. Sounds cool too with the Edelbrock open breather I put on it. :mrgreen:

I agree with attaching the badges, but as you said you a replacing the 305 with a 350. When are you planning on getting it?

The 350 is going to be a few years down the road, since I just started college, and don't have the time nor the amount of cash it will take to put a good solid 350 in the car. The 350 is part of my future "dream car" plans to build a decent performing 350 1991 RS Camaro w/ a 5-speed. I am also planning on doing suspension and braking upgrades to the car when I go through it with a fine tooth comb. So, by the time all of this takes place it will be my week-end only car. It's cool to dream big!!

Sounds cool. Ever thought about putting the 6-speed behind that 350? It's a cool conversion that adds an extra gear and greater torque handling.

Yeah, the idea of a 6-speed is a constant thought for the project. I would love to have it know with the 4.10 gears. At about 55mph it would be excellent to plug another gear and have the car running at about 1500rpm (It's at about 2250rpm right know). But yeah, the 6-speed is another probability aswell.
