I have a 72' Malibu with a stock 350 and 2barrell carb. I want to put a new intake and 4barrell on along with a cowl induction hood. I'm afraid that the new carb and intake will not allow the air cleaner needed for the hood, to fit. Any suggestions or combinations of a carb and intake that would fit, would really help.

An Edelbrock torker II will clear, but they don't perform too good. I had one and It would bogg down with no converter very badly. I now have a performer RPM and I love it. Oh, ya and double pumpers are always nice.

With a 'stock 350', I would suggest looking into an Edelbrock Performer dual plane intake combined with a Holly 600cfm vacuum secondary carburator. This combo will offer better low-end torque than a larger set-up would for your stock engine. Stick with smaller and faster intake charges for your set-up. Go with anything larger and you will most definitely punish your car's low- end torque numbers. On the other hand, IF you plan to re-build your 350 in the not-so-distant future, then you may consider investing NOW in the right carb/intake combo for your new re-build.

You will have PLENTY of room on a 71' with a cowl induction hood. On my 70' Malibu, I run a 750 double pumper with a 1" phenolic carb spacer and a 1/2" nitrous plate atop an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake. With a large 14 x 4" K&N air filter, I still have about 1" to spare before the carb stud hits the stock cowl hood underneath. Have fun and enjoy your selection!
