I have a couple of 1 pc cowl, which are a PITA to baffle. On and off 79 times for measuring, fitting, trimming, more trimming, spotting gaps that need closed off. The 2 pc cowl is a breeze, but still takes a lil bit of time.

The tighter you get your baffle to the cylinder heads, the better it will be.

First 2 pics are 1 pc cowls. 1 is a G200 and the 2nd is a Corvus Racer. The 3rd pic is my MX2.

As I think we should have a thread on just baffles, I started a new thread under General Discussions called "Show us your baffles".. There are so many variables, techniques and materials that could be applied and I would like others to share their experiences.

This was my first time using foam, but alluminum, ply, balsa, cardboard, and many other materials could also be used.

I would like to see how others have done it so I can apply those techniques and materials to my next project.

It would also be a great reference for those doing it for the 1st time.

My procedure for locating and drilling a tuning access hole in the cowl. I use a hard mounted laser pointer aimed at the high/low carb adjustment needles. The below pictures should explain the process:
