    Thanks Steve et all for the positive comments. I think that will be it for a while as I dont expect the dash to be complete for a few months and there is nothing left to tinker with.

    Infact the only thing that does need looking in to is the engine is not running right since getting the car back. Nothing was done to the engine, except for a change of air filter. This was due to the new smaller scoop not being big enough to accommodate the Cobra air filter, so had to go for something much smaller.
    I opted for a Edelbrock 1002 Pro-Flo Reusable Air Cleaner Filter :

    The base of the filter is just underneath the bonnet, the top is in the scoop. I wonder if there is too much air now getting to the carb and effecting the mixture.

    Stunning job!

    Ah, the 'triangle of death' air cleaners don't have the best of reputations, as in the event of carb coughing up a bit of fuel it can cause a fire.... foam degrades and drops down into the engine etc. Thought as long as you carb is set up properly you should be ok, it should flow enough CFM too.

    Laminar flow might have changed though - air coming in could be disturbed now with a different scoop. Could try blanking off the scoop itself to see if the change in air pressure/direction makes a difference?

    Thanks Alex, that's interesting. I didn't do any research before buying that air cleaner, I needed to find a replacement quickly and thought the edlebrock one would be ok.
    I think i will do a bit of research into a round 9" diameter one to see if that helps.
