      Aside from getting a better seal around the top, I am very happy with how it turned out

          a 5 gallon rubbermaid trash can lol its cheap and it seems to work really well. Just by running around for about 30 minutes then coming home and feeling the air inside the box, it is noticeably coolr than the rest of the air in the engine compartment.

            The old rubbermaid headshield mod. This was quite popular for a while in the Lightning community.

                    this was popular on these forums back before the pudmunkie or npg setups were available.

                        Looks good, like someone said it was very popular when I joined the forums.

                        Off topic: did you know the Conquest has the same drag coefficient as an SVT Contour at .32?

                          I actually didn't lol, i always thought the conquest would be more aerodynamic than the contour...looks can be deceiving i guess

                              Yeah that coefficient number for the Contour does not include front air dam volume, no info on the conquest as to whether it does or not.
