    As claimed by all the curb sniffer drivers. lol
    I even have a curb sniffer with outside cans, a T800, much better setup than the one can under the hood.

    Does anyone know how hard it is to put two big breathers on a 359 with the one small one?

    It would not be hard at all, a lot of the 359's had the oil can on the other side, I would just do away with it, with the oil we have today.

    Nah just replace a hood panel on the side you want to add the breather too.....for starters. In reality it isn't as hard as it dam expensive which makes easy stuff hard

    I have never really looked at it, but couldn't a decent metal guy make the cutout, instead of replacing the panel?

    If you want a hack job sure. Oh the inner hood braces are different to depending on whether the panel is notched for a breather tube or not. ....really a guy is better off buying a straight dual breather hood if he can find one.


    The things that seem simple ain't always so simple

    Lookin cool ain't cheap. Lookin cheap ain't cool. Its simple as that

    Yea, ideally a whgole hood would be the way to go, but they bring a premium anywhere and you have to add the Alaska premium to that here. lol
    Looking at the picture, it looks like you are running vortex cans, they aren't exactly cheap either. lol
