On my SBC 383 I wanted the pre'68 look but had a newer block.

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.
Bingo! Classic hot rodder's solution to a task that "can't be done".
