Cowl induction air cleaner question

I cave a cowl hood with the hood insulation on it. I installed a cowl air cleaner and the rubber seal hits the insulation. Is that right or is it suposed to be tight to the metal of the hood itself. I have no room for triming because the retainers are there. Would like to keep it but i also want the cowl to work properly. Any advice would be great.

Re: Cowl induction air cleaner question

Jay that sounds like you have a standard hood insulation and not the cowl one, or maybe if you do have a cowl insulation then it does not have a correct sized hole cutout. The cowl insulation has a big cutout which allows the air cleaner assembly to sit in the cowl hole without being fouled by anything.

It has the hole cut out and it is larger than the hole in the hood. I got it from Ricks. Maybe thats the problem.

Re: Cowl induction air cleaner question

I was gonna suggest getting rid of the insulation. I don't like the stuff because it holds dirt and can't be washed. Of course, who drives in dirt? If it's new, maybe Ricks will take it back. Here's my cowl, no insulation.

Do you run a spacer plate. You got a small block? What size are those wheels? Looks good.

Re: Cowl induction air cleaner question

Make sure you seal is right side up, if it is upside down, it could hit the insulation
