It seems a common opinion is that those fake "fuel injected" scoops shoulnd't be used except for an anchor because they are "fake".

I'm wondering what is less "fake" on these trick bad asssed new modern fuel injection systems some guys are stuffing into the "fake" scoops. They aren't the real thing either so it must be about how much you spend on the "fake" set-up that makes it cool...  ???  ... because I've only seen maybe 5 people on this board that actually have the "real thing".

I think it's complete crap and ball-less to trash other people's sh!t on the web.   :o  I also think it's complete crap and ball-less to trash other peoples sh!t when you got the same thing sitting in your garage.

I think only cars should have velocity stacks, although flames shooting out of them do look really cool.

I don't know who actually made them but those old school Nicson ( ?? )  scoops are bitchin on the right boat. One problem with them is you can't run them on three dueces because most dueces are two barrels (duece = two) and have different air cleaner base diameter's.   :D

I gotta go, I'm late on taking my meds...   :P

The comments about "fake" fuel injection scoops dont even make sense (i even read it 3 times) and I dont know where you see people talking tash on anyones boats directly. Not sure what point youre trying to make here.

Thats pretty funny , you think my velocity stacks belong on a car and I think your scoop that you paid waaay too much for belongs on a wooden post in front of a house with a little red flag on the side of it!

It look to me like Rod is trashing anyone who puts velocity stacks on anything other than a car. ::)

Who would have ever thought that a simple  statement/Comment/question such as:

I've got a dumb question.  Wouldn't the butterflies on on a carb scoop like in this photo tend to work as a choke?

Would have caused such a commotion? ???

Hey Rod,  send that puppy up to me.  I've got a new airbrush on the way and I need something to practice on.  I;ve got some House of Kolor stuff here on the shelf that might do the trick.

I'm selling it.  :'(  I need some cash. But I do have an idea of what scoop I'm going to run when and if I ever get a engine in my boat.  :-\  When I get that scoop made, I'll send it to you for some apprentice air brushing.

Yea I wanted to put it on my '32 Ford pickup. I'll get another one when the time is right.

marcsrollin hates  2 out of the 3 of my scoops/air cleaners.  :D  The one posted above and the old school circle race boat scoop that I sold with a boat, regretted selling, and then paid a little too much for to get it back.   :P  (i.e: "the scoop that needs a red flag on it's side and then needs to be mounted on a post", I can't stop laughing from that one!)
