The Dodge Stratus fans fit well with the Cutlass top bracket and move a lot of air.

That'd be a nice setup. I like the factory look of the Cutlass top plate. I don't necessarily mind fabbing some brackets, but I don't want to have to scratch build a fan/rad setup and I want things to be neat and factory-looking.

Got the fuel pump installed today. Also found out that a non-A/C alternator bracket exists, and I found one over on V8Buick.com from a member. Should look much nicer than the bracket from the V6 or the either of the ones from the V8s. Little steps.

If my car wasn't ac I would have definitely went this route. Would have let me use the Buick dual snorkel air cleaner too.

Yep that. I'm ditching the A/C so I think that should be the cleanest appearing setup.

Wait there is a dual snorkel air cleaner?! You aren't referring to the "star wars" air cleaner are you?

Yup. And nope.

Haven't seen one with the lid cheaper than this.

They used them for the 350 GS and 455. There is a special bracket that bolted on the water neck studs on the early cast aluminum neck that held up the front. That air cleaner is missing the foams and plastic scoop... But for a regal or non ram air car its fine.

Ohhhh that dual snorkel air cleaner. I'm not sure what I'm gonna do for an air cleaner yet. I have the factory one off of the 76 LeSabre. It needs blasted and painted though and I don't really want to use the heat riser thing, so I don't know. I think I'm going to go with the black TA valve covers and I think this air cleaner would go well with them-

They make a 350-4 "HI-COMRESSION" as well.

Played hooky from work today and instead took a ride to Summit in Akron. Once I hit the turnpike the weather was clear and sunny. I took the humble Toyota, it's easy on gas and just plain comfortable on the highway. Anyways I bought my Flowkooler water pump. I need to find some decent looking water pump bolts or buy some new ones and I can get it bolted on.
