F-BIRD'88 All you need is to get and use the right OEM 60-70's era corvette air cleaner base.
14x3" filter fits with room to spare when you use the corvette base.

Yeah if you want a tall intake in a vette you need a new hood or a hole in your stock one. Torker II and proflow is the next biggest thing that half way works. But really not a soution for big power. Just the stuff that fits.

Always works for me. Nothing to it and the bottom is a nice venturi shape. I got to think it flows well. Now if you have no hood room and use this filter just for clearence with no space above ot they will not flow well. But if a normal filter fits the proflow should have clearence. If flow is not right then just change the element its just flat foam so no big deal to make a new pne out pf better filter material. But i think its pretty good from the factory. 1000 cfm is a big number and edelbrock is not the type pf company to post dreamed up numbers.

But if you dont like the edelbrock 20 dollar air cleaner you can get k&n setup

k&n makes a 14x2 round filter and you can get the filter lid to give it some help.

Here is a link to show a picture of one. But i think the price seems high this is just the first grab off the google search.

K & N also makes regular round filters in most sizes and they flow a lot more air. Also check out the filter lid every little bit helps.

Hope this helps
