I got the scoop installed with a few modifications to my car and I just
went to my first car show of the season and took first place in my class.
Everyone couldn't believe there was a carb under the scoop, they thought
it was fuel injected. I gave alot of people your website. I am really
happy with the final outcome, this is exactly the look I was going for.

his opinion was that it would be no problem running it with a 2-1/4
K&N air filter. I guess his brother Earl has quite a car with
his '34 blown coupe. He couldn't say enough good things about the
quality of your Street Induction. He is very impressed.

Al, I received the scoop on Monday. IM very happy with the quality,

the barn door to the sideways holleys. When I get some photos I
will send them. Thanks, Ken
: Pawcatuck, Connecticut USA SC520cb STREETCATCHER
love the look of the Street Scoop. Other people that have seen
it love the look also. The low , mean, blown and injected look
sure gets attention. A quality product that is everything its advertised
to be. I guess you could say I'm a "Happy Camper".

It's Lee Michael, just letting you know the scoop came in friday. It
is beautiful, thanks for the quick service!! I'll send you some pictures

the scoop today. Words just can't describe the quality of your product.$
1000 is a lot of money for a hat but it is definitely worth it. Also
thanks for getting it done for me ASAP. I would like to purchase
the linkage kit for the sideways carbs from you. Please at your convenience
send me a estimated delivery date and charge it to the same card
I gave for the scoop.
Thanks for everything!!!!!

purchased to date and ive brought some good gear from around the world,
excellent fit and finish mate. i wish everyones products and service
lived upto the pictures and hype like yours then we would all be happy.again
great product, great service and bloody well packed as well.
I received my induction unit today. It's not like you haven't heard
this before,but what a beautiful piece of workmanship that is.
Everything looks absolutely wonderful.I wish My car was ready to
go so I could show it off. But I will still do a lot of that .I
built a 1955 chevy nomad gasser with straight ax ,big block chevy
and a 4 speed. That too will be awesome when completed. Your induction
unit will be the finishing touch it needs.Thankyou my friend.It
is so very much appreciated. Will send some pictures when I get
all my parts in the same pile. Thanks again,

The scoop arrived on Thursday... Everything was perfect. I have had to
back order the filter. I guess its an obscure size and no one stocks
it here, it should be here in two weeks or so.I have trial fit the scoop
and hooked up the hardware, everything fit very well, and I will cut
my hood in the next week and then take some pics to send you. It's pretty
ironic that I can get a scoop made from many first class materials built
in New Zealand shipped halfway around the planet in less than a week
but I can't get a filter that is manufactured in the US for over two
weeks.Oh well Cheers John

Here are a few pictures from a happy guy in Canada that you sent
one of your units to. I was at a recent Armdrop event with Rich
Christianson (Pinks) officiating and we had a blast. The car looks
badass and still gets down the track in the 10.60’s. Corrected
for sea level that is high 10.30’s as we are at 2400 ft in
Edmonton. Not bad for a pump gas street legal plated car that runs
all motor with no power adders. It also is running real Pontiac
power, all 541 cubic inches.

Scoop came today, I must say I am impressed by the finish. My 13 year
old son went nuts when it arrived, he signed for delivery and open the

car when she is finished with the scoop out and proud. Thanks again

extremely thorough and pay close attention to detail...I got my credit

a tremendous product, I'll be sure to send you some pictures next

Thank you so much. I got the scoop yesterday, and it is something
awesome.You packed it up so carefully. I am extremely happy w/ the
build quality. I took it across town to show my old man. he had a
smile ear to ear. Hes been watching this car evolve for almost 9
years now. Last time i saw him this exited about a part, was when
i bought the actual blower. Good stuff. I'll keep you posted and
send pics when i got something good to show ya.

Here are a few pictures of it sitting on my motor. I also included
a blower belt guard from RCD that I am trying to make work on my
blower. Tell me what you think about it. RCD is not very good at
responding to questions. Nobody that I have found makes a belt guard
for the mini-blowers. I am certain that there would be a market for

Al, The unit arrived today and I spent the evening making the necessary
changes to the carbs and a few mods to the base plate and it looks
wonderful !!! It's just what the car needed and I'm sure it will
be a the first thing people ask me about. The car will be pearl black
with titanium pearl SS stripes on the hood with your unit poking
up in the middle ! Should be dramatic !
Back in the sixty's and early seventy's, I built a 42 Willys coupe with
a big block Chev that I drove almost every day ( long before they became
a real hot item off the track ) and I had the old Hilborn 4 port scoop
( that I still have---but not the car ..darn it ) through the hood for
that a-la Stone-Woods Cook look, but every body with a blower on the street
runs that style scoop and your 520 will help this car stand alone and I
thank you for that.
I'll take some shots with a good back ground and send them along this spring.
Till then, thanks again and I'll tell them where I got it !

Street Catcher arrived yesterday Al and it looks great my friend.
I didn't pull the linkages out or anything but assume the block and linkages
are inside the hat?
Just for your info, they charged about $67.00 for GST and a $7.00 handling
fee which was great as I didn't have to pay any import duty on it. Packaging
was awesome and my buddy loved the colorful sheet you wrapped it up in
before packing around it. It shows you care about your products, your shipping,
and you delivered an "Excellent Product". I am very impressed
with the quality of your breather.
Feel free to post my comments on your website as a testimonial. I'll send
some pictures to you soon.Regards,

Al, :-). Excuse my French but '---- ----' your product is off the
hook. Amazing Quality and the way you pack it up in the box is so
tight it could survive a tumble down a flight of steps and come out
flawless. thank you Thank you thank you. I am so happy and the purple
ROCKS. I will send you pics very soon. Also one of the hot rod boys
from my club who helped install my induction unit fell in love with
it as well. So I think you will be preparing another shortly.

Been meaning to send some pics of my "finished" project. Made
some changes to the fuel lines and linkage since last time we talked. It's
been a slow going project, but I've been able to make alot of headway these
past few months. Had the car to a few local shows this fall and no one
can walk past it without checking out the scoop. Now that the car is together
and painted it's plain to see how your scoop really finishes it off. And
most people think it's injected! Even those who should know better!! But
I always let the cat out of the bag. I may have gone overboard with the
lines and linkage and such, but i had a lot of fun doing it. Thanks Al!
Hope you like the pictures. Mike Moore

a different set up.

Al. Got the induction sysrem today. Looks great, thanks!. I already
mounted the adapter and hat and am in the process of cutting the
hole in the hood-so far the hardest part!. Need to replace the
gas pedal and carb linkage (it was stock configutation). Should
be finished tomorrow except for personal detailing. I'll send photos
when it's done.
Al, a few more engine shots. Drove it to breakfast and the car guys flipped
over it! I'm waiting for front spring spacers to get the nose up about
2 inches (don't want a straight axle). It's a '65, my favorite and I
like '64 Comets. Thanks again, Bruce

Love the SC520 breather you shipped me, and it’s been getting
a lot of attention from other guys who love the original Enderle
style look. The car was completed in February of 2012 and I’ve
been busy showing the car at the World of Wheels in Calgary, Winnipeg,
and down in Omaha Nebraska. It’s won Best in Class (3) times
now, and has also received (3) Outstanding Street Machine awards,
(2) Outstanding Custom Engine awards, and others for Best Paint,
Detail, and Display. I had it on the Dyno a couple weeks ago and
the engine makes just over 850hp at the crank, and around 700hp at
the rear wheels. The hat functions really well and the butterflies
open and close as you can see on the video I made while on the Dyno.
Check out the video’s on my website at www.fiftyfivechev.com
and thanks for everything Al. You were an awesome guy to deal with,
and you sell a great product that’s unique to the marketplace.

SC520pr STREETCATCHER APR 4
Al, I don't know if Darren had sent you any pictures yet but here's
a few for you. The car is rough looking without paint but you get
the idea, We used that Professional Products Pontiac intake and had
to add a 1" spacer which set the induction up perfectly if anyone
ever asks how it will fit. I did some minor grinding on the air cleaner
base to clear the airhorn/ Choke linkage a little better, but other
than that, she was a perfect fit. This thing is a hit and eveyone
is asking where we got the injection
His car definitely has "The Look"
PS I was at the Stray Kat 500 car show in Dewey, Oklahoma and there was
a white Chevy Vega with a blown engine that had your Enderly bug catcher
with lines and had I not been on your web site I never would have even
caught it. That is a nice fit and looks very cool.
Thanks again, Dil

Got the SC500 blower hat. It's fantastic. Question. On the rear,
side of the carb base plate, there is a tapped and threaded
looks to be 1/4 NPT thread. What 's that for? Also, my 4150,
950 cfm Holley has the rear air horn hitting the scoop. Is
Didn't have time to try it with the gasket in place, do you thing
that's enough to give me the clearance? Maybe a carb spacer?

it and you were a pleasure to deal with. Thanks again. Mark.

.......I never got around to it but what I learned with sand

would be. They
really are wonderfully done pieces. Sometimes you never really know
what you are going to get when you order something like this online,
and the fear is always getting some Chinese piece of junk! I really
couldn't be happier with this injector hat set-up. It's the baddest
looking thing on the street.. Can't wait to complete the car and I'll
