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.

sqzbox If you get the 4" cowl you might as well add a 1" spacer under the carb and add a little more HP for cheap.

bigdog7373 As long as you don't get a high rise intake you'll be fine. I have a holley contender high rise manifold on my 350 in a 78 firebird and it doesn't fit. Still haven't decided what i'm going to do with it. But yea, get a low rise and you're good.
