On my SBC 383 I wanted the pre'68 look but had a newer block. In one of the car mags (wish I could find it again), it showed how to drill and tap a hole in the rear of the block, into the lifter valley. You can then screw in a 90 degree fitting to clear the firewall and run a hose to the air cleaner (for intake air). I then ran a Corvette style oil filler tube with a screw-in PCV valve to the carb. Works like a charm.
