Korn dont take this the wrong way man, im just letting you in on this,but this is one of those things that really bugs me...Pontiac dosent have a big or small block, all the heads after 64' from 326ci to 455ci interchange. Sorry man not trying to be a d!ck just informing, as far as the carb, a 750 holley 3310 will work great, tune it,its what i use on my 400 in my GTO.

Holley 750 vacuum secondary or a Quadrajet. The 69, 70, 71, 72 cast intakes flow good and will fit the shaker. The Performer RPM will BARELY fit the shaker setup, but it will work. The Performer RPM is a little light and flows slightly better than the cast iron intake.....which flow pretty good. If you can find one the Holley Street Dominator is awesome....I have one on my 455 and it is supposedly the same hight as the original intake.

CROZ...GTO is a 1967, i tore my first GTO apart when i was in 6th grade, got a muncie and a couple other parts out of it {It was rotten as i live in iowa} And we had to junk that one, then i got a 67 In 8th grade {California H.O. car} and started tearing into that one, learned alot because my dad just let me have at it and if i messed up he and my neighbor would show me what i did wrong then give me hell about it for a couple weeks. So that was my first motor i ever built, a pontiac 400, proud to say i did it myself when i was 14. Im 20 now and we gotta go back through the motor {spun a bearing a year or so back} Gosh i beat the hell out of that car in highschool Now i have a nova that going to be my street monster and my dad also has a 70 chevelle that hes going to have to restore soon. {hes had it since 1972} I know the story was unnecessary but oh well just figured id let ya in. ....Nick
