I have a 70SS with a 396 / 350hp. I want to change the manifold and replace the Rochester with a Holley. My concern is with the cowl hood. Is the height of the carb going to fit?

Depends. Your intake may be tall enough that you need to use a smaller spacer (1981 injected Eldorados use a spacer about 3/4in tall) or you may need to eliminate the spacer all together. I just finished a SB400 installation using a very early Z-28 intake with a Q-jet, and I had to eliminate the spacer between the carb and air cleaner. Just roll the dice and see how it fits.

Just don't buy a high rise manifold and you'll be safe.
