The only problem I see (other than being speed density) is the dual inlet throttle body. It might make it a little difficult to close the hood.

Thank you. Kultulz went out and measured and sure enough it will not fit under the hood. I never thought about that.Guess i will go with a carb lot less trouble any way.
