KBR97 That's what I'm saying basically...I could care less whether it works or not...just saying its advertised facing foward..whatever who the hell cares.
Buzzin your in PA..ever go to Rausch Creek?...we can argue about the cowl over a beer and campfire..lol

Levinoss They can go both ways and work just fine....lol

I ended up rippin mine off because other then looks they did nothing besides trap leaves and other crud up under them.

KBR97 Absolutely does make sense.... Im not saying the design works or not. Just saying Mr One Two isnt wrong for mounting it how he did because thats the way the manufacturer designed it to be mounted. That exact product and many others like it...and there is also a handful that also mount the opposite way or "correct way"..

And you're still telling me the wrong way it's supposed to be mounted.
Just because some seller of these has a picture with one mounted the wrong way doesn't mean it's supposed to be mounted that way!

Doesn't my explanation of why it's supposed to have the opening facing rearward make any sense to you???

Common sense would tell ya that.

With the scoop opening facing forward, you are pulling more air out from where it should have more air drawn in.
It would need to be mounted up higher to be effective in the forward facing position.

holes I like the stang
04-19-2010 11:40 PM
Levinoss That is a SHWEEEET front bumper. I'm glad I'm not the only one who looked at the mustang! I'd kill to have a classic pony.
04-19-2010 11:37 PM
cavediverjc Does she have the 289 K-code?
04-19-2010 11:33 PM
Mr One Two it is actually black and she has seen her better days looks wise but whats under the hood is what makes me keep her. I am an old school mustang guy not too fond of the new stuff. but ya the jeep is there too.
04-19-2010 11:12 PM
cavediverjc Nice '65. And nice looking Jeep too!!

Looks like it's Night Mist Blue. I showed a '66 Night Mist Blue Mustang for a number of years. My dad showed a '70 Mach 1 for about 10 years before selling it. I'm a classic Mustang fan.

jdhallissey ehh there is a jeep there? I only see a mustang
