Here's the underside of the hood for the '56. It'll be this color above the trim, and white below it.

While I like the color;), I want to see the hole.
Qualification for that club is more about what is sticking through the hole, than the hole itself[}:)]......

Is this in reference to the 5/8" hole stamped in the hood reinforcement panel, seen in the lower left quadrant of the photo? Or, is a much larger one about to be cut? That said, I heard somewhere(don't really know if it is true) that this particular subject was politically incorrect on this discussion board.

Someone who is no longer here used the term as a negative to dicribe those who modified their cars (think of a supercharger sticking thru the hood). Over the last couple years, it's starting to become a term of endearment, or at least looked at with a sense of humor. Another set of buttons might be needed for this 'gang' [:o)].

Yes, Swifster got it right. But, prolly the one who coined that term was referring to those who made grossly impractical modifications(as opposed to true upgrades)to their Studebakers. Just my humble opinion, though I am right a Majority(51%)of the time.

I was referring to the 4 small holes on the bottom right.

I remember Dave Lester had similar holes on his Transtar hood. That's where the thread title came from. [:I]

And NO, we're not cutting any holes in any hoods.

Oh sure I got upgrades in mind, but unfortunately a grad student a couple months from graduation doesn't carry much money for that just yet.......

try running smaller diameter exhaust pipe (i.e. 2" vs. 2 1/2") and no mufflers at all, the cast iron manifolds and smaller diameter pipe will provide enough backpressure without excessive noise.

Not the answwer I was looking for. Yall's idea on true ugrades should generate true horsepower, which will require some calculatin' the harmonic resonance, how the wave will act on the return to the exhaust valve, and in short, putting together a set of pipes that will take full advantage of the exhaust stroke. But this was fun, a cast iron manifold and a set of straight pipes and calling it good, I'll have better luck with the 6-71...... [}:)]

Gotta like the color though, thats gotta resemble a highlighter yellow......

ry running smaller diameter exhaust pipe (i.e. 2" vs. 2 1/2") and no mufflers at all, the cast iron manifolds and smaller diameter pipe will provide enough backpressure without excessive noise.


Not the answwer I was looking for. Yall's idea on true ugrades should generate true horsepower, which will require some calculatin' the harmonic resonance, how the wave will act on the return to the exhaust valve, and in short, putting together a set of pipes that will take full advantage of the exhaust stroke. But this was fun, a cast iron manifold and a set of straight pipes and calling it good, I'll have better luck with the 6-71...... [}:)]

Gotta like the color though, thats gotta resemble a highlighter yellow......
