I can't wait for somebody to build that car in black with stock wheels and a quiet exhaust, and whenever somebody pulls up in their "musclecar" and asks what you've got, "Oh, it's just a Hyundai." "A Honda? *snicker*." "No, just a Hyundai, it's Korean." "Korean? *laughs out loud*" Then you beat the ever-loving pants off of them.

I like this, but I still think my muscle car would win.

Oh, no doubt a properly built muscle car would still be very hard to beat, the quotes around the word represented a bit of sarcasm, referring to how everyone with a Mustang GT or a Firebird thinks they have a "musclecar". I've never really considered most modern cars to qualify, but its fun to have a little turbo car that can show every guy with an american V8 rear-driver their taillights.

1970s Firebirds never had 455s in them. The 455 was an Oldsmobile engine. The biggest engine in a Firebird from the 70s was the 400.
Good eye sleay, If you get a chance, introduce yourself in the new member section.
I was actually talking about the Firebird TransAm, which still didn't come with larger displacement engine until the 2nd generation T/A. It was the Olds 442s that had the 455s back in the early 70s. Thanks again, I guess I'm getting old & starting to forget some of that muscle car info I got stored up there...LoL Just don't think about those cars much anymore...:rolleye:

Really I thought the 455 that appeared in the 71 firebird-trans am was a 428 pontiac motor with an increased bore. Dubbed the 455-HO and later SD-455 in 73/74.

Oh and I want a V-mount:bump:

That's exactly what I thought, because I had a friend with a white T/A back then, that I think was a 73' model & could of swore it had a 455 in it. But, I did a quick search on the internet after sleay brought it up & only showed 400HO for Firebirds & T/As for that time frame.

Just did some more research & found this:

"For the first time since 1970, two engines were offered in the 1973 Trans Am, both displacing 455 cubic inches, in base and Super Duty versions. The engines might have offered the same displacement, but that is where the similarity ended. The base engine (coded as follows - manual WT, WW, ZZ, and, ZE and for the automatics - X7, XE, XL, XM, YA, YC, and YD) produced 50 fewer horsepower than their round ported 1972 H.O. counterpart. Horsepower was [email protected] rpm while peak torque took a hit as well, dropping to 370 lb/ft @2800 rpm. Increased emission regulations meant a drop in the compression ratio, now down to 8.0:1. The output of oxides of nitrogen (large displacement engines are more succeptable to high levels of N0x as compression ratio's increase) were lessened with a lower compression ratio. Pontiac removed the H.O. designation from the engine, and simply badged the shaker with 455 engine calouts."

It looks like there is the large funnel grabber in the front that routes air up and through the IC. As long as moving air is passing over it, should be no reason for heat soak IMO.
