    MisterMike...I'll be damned...welcome....hows that twin screw beast of yours? Good to see you man....
    To the original question...there is a rubber strip along the back of the hood ( up next to the windshield) to keep water out of the engine bay....pull that shit off....the ridge there will keep water from running down the engine bay....the rubber gasket just seals it up like a oven......2ndly....either wrap your exhaust manifold or have them ceramic coated.....I have mine wrapped.....huge drop in underhood temps just with those two inexpensive exercises....thirdly...yes I run the hood with the heat extractors...but really dont need them after the rubber gasket removal and the headers wrapped.....

    Hi Serge,

    I'm interested in this as well but I have a what might be a silly question....

    How do you wrap your exhaust manifold and what material do you use??

    And that seal at the back of the hood ...If I take that off when it rains with cats and dogs that's not going to cause the water to damage anything right?

    Yours is not a silly question. Does Hillary eat pussy is a silly question. Of course she does. OK....
    I use exhaust wrap from NAPA.....simple, cheap and very effective......looks like this ....

    And no...I removed that gasket damn near day one and have driven through turd floaters and many a car washing and have never had a drop go past that lip into the engine bay.....ever.....

    See along the back of the engine bay where the yellow vacuum line is tie wrapped...that is the lip I'm talking about.....take that rubber gasket off and throw it in your exwifes birthday cake.

    I have the Gravana Hood...it has additional heat extractors.....

    I wrapped my headers when we swapped out the LS1 for the Stroker....

    But it can be done without removing the manifold or headers.....

    Yo, Sahhhhhhge.
    I heard you were hanging out over here. I registered ages ago, then forgot apparently. I working on putting in a better fuel system to handle the new motor, and trying to upgrade the blower to 3.3L. Maybe I can get out of the 13's. My old clutch was only engaging on the inner 1/2 of its diameter.
