You're seeing the same thing I'm seeing on the software dyno, at least 40 hp gain from the taller dual-plane intake.

Hood??? We don't need no stinkin' hood. Take a Sawzall to it. Make room.

You could also use a drop-base air filter assembly, but make certain that the lid of the assembly doesn't smother the top of the carb.
