My new motor (SBC) has a performer rpm intake on it. The Holley I have covers the hole on the manifold that I would use to hook up the brake booster. I guess the shape of the Edelbrock carbs allow enough room. But my Holley 4150 w/ dominator bowls doesn't.

So what do I do.

What about running a spacer between the Intake and Carb, or are you short of room between the filter and hood??
Any room to use a 90°fitting adapter?

Had the same problem with the Air-Gap, Had to put a 1.0" spacer in and use a dropped air cleaner.

There is no room for a fitting of any kind. The carb is directly above the hole. There is just enough room for a plug, but that has to be installed with the carb off.

I had a holley dual plane on the old motor. The fitting was back farther, closer to the distributer. Different companies...

I thought about the spacer. But how that affects the power is my concearn. I was hoping there is some tricky way of fixing this. I guess not. Oh well, I will try a spacer. Now do I go with the four hole or the open? haha
