  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Huevos Gigantes needed to start this project and its been in the back of my mind for quite some time. I've wanted to do some type of exterior mod like add an aftermarket hood to the Corvette but in most cases that party starts around $1,200 - $1,500 just to get in the door so I decided to add my own ventilation to the hood this weekend so here's the beginning. Enjoy.

Nice work, Rocket! 👍

I hear you about the cost of hoods... I want to get an L88 hood for my C3, but haven't pulled the trigger (yet, lol!).

Love it 360! Gona be killer!

Yes it will make a marked improvement in engine performance due to lower temps! The F.1 hood on the Indian diverts fresh air from the front scoops on to the engine, while a rear set extract hot air out the back. Drops engine temps anywhere from 15 to 30 degrees and inlet plenum air temp as much as 40 degrees depending on ambient air temps.

360 Excellent work my man! I'm with JUSTA on this one....that took some serious gonads.

To quote Red Green, "Remember, I'm pulling for you. We're all in this together." And if that don't work....the handyman's secret weapon is, of course, duct tape!
