hi deck under lo deck

I have a hi deck motor with rectangular port heads I would like to put in my 72 Chevelle.Any input on what intake(s) will fit under stock hood.My car is a malibu with the stock hood .Do I need to run a cowl hood.I do not want to use one of the aftermarket taller than stock hoods .I would rather sacrifice a little power with a low intake ,than have a butchered hood.If clearance was no issue i'd run a Dart single plane .Don't think it will fit under hood .SB is in car now so measuring doesn't help me . Thank you in advance willie :thumbsup:

If you use a Holly carburetor, a reproduction Corvette drop base aircleaner (68-72 BBC or SBC) will give you about an inch and a half additional clearance. It drops the air filter down around the carburetor. It will not work with an Edelbrock and not well with a Quadrajet.

This is not a Summit or Jegs unit. You will probably have to go to a Corvette vendor.
