currently building a 454 to install in a 64 malibu ss . just curious has to how tall of a intake manifold will fit before having to cut the hood . cutting the hood in my mind is not an option . i have the 850 double pumper already but havn't purchased the intake.
ddd, i had the same issues with my 66(396). I purchased an edelbrock RPM manifold & was told that I would have some height problems.
I'm using a major drop base & still can only use a 2" air cleaner... Even that is close to the hood.
Also, i would not be able to use a plate under the carb either, so if the super juice is in my future, I better find a nice cowl hood!
Thanks for the review... Still trying a couple things yet...
That pic is from the movie The Hollywood Knights, by far the best car movie out!
As for the car, I'm definitely anxious to drive it!!
