Indeed, the key is going to be having the new shop ready before I put anything in it...... unlikely, but a goalThat is looking good. The placement should help the area behind the rear window/on the rear deck. I've got to get busy with the CFD soon.
Packing up that shop will take a few days.

probably another casualty of the bean counters. They use pedals that are the same size and shape as A-body pedals but in 1/3rd the space... I realize I didn't take an after picture (or the camera just didn't save it) - I cut the pedals so I could get the pads as far left as possible - gained at least 1/2" of space, which with racing shoes is quite a bit. That's also another thing - the headlight dimmer switch. My 76, it's on the floor, my 75 was on the column. Next car gets the dimmer on the column (if it isn't already there) because there is plenty of space - even for a dead pedal without the high beam switch....Yeah, what is the deal with the pedals? I bent the accelerator pedal rod to get it away from the carpet and made a new bumper to get the clutch and brake at the same distance from the floor. Just a little more space between the pedals would be really good.
the proof will be on the dyno.... it is remarkable how much it seems to have helped, but the dyno will tell us whether or not the theory that we talked about before holds water....Your noise reduction approach is showing the way for my header build. Thanks for documenting.
It will be nice to have the dyno comparison too. Important to know the "costs" of freedom.
