It's a crossbar plate. It has 90*'s on the side bars to clear the old setup between the fuel rails. I tried a 45* and just hooking the line straight up and it won't clear any way I've tried. With 90* jet holders it looks like that will pull the line in close enough to clear?
The car already has a 2" cowl hood and I'd like to keep it that way, looks less conspicuous like that, no a fan of the huge cowl hoods. I have about an 1-1/2" of clearance from the vent tubes on the carb, Dan DaVinci assured me it was perfectly fine.im probably not going to have any choice but a larger hood on the new motor though.
