    How's this for a hood scoop? I had an extra fuel tank lying around that had rust holes in the bottom. I might even leave the fuel cap on it, lol.

    Anyway, I got the hood finished and actually drove it up and down the driveway this weekend. Apparently I need valve seals, but it runs great. NOTICE the full exhaust, lol.

    I just about bought a YZ80 for the engine, but now I think of what a pita that would be to install and tune.

    It's a stainless tip I cut off GT350 mufflers. I mounted the stainless mufflers on my car, they sound great.

    I like the scoop, too. I missed the rear fenders, they look good!

    I haven't wound it up yet under power, because white smoke absolutely pours out of the pipe, lol. I should take a video of that, it's so obnoxious.
