Wow. This has turned into an awesome forum since I was last here. Thank you guys for the prompt and good responses. Those are a little pricier than I was hoping for but they look a lot better than any of the cheap ones I'd found.
On the height, I am currently using a 60s Toronado intake with a 1" spacer, a Quadrajet and a Edelbrock Pro-Flo 1000 air cleaner (triangle one at the bottom, shortest air cleaner I've found http://www.edelbrock.com/automotive_new ... rome.shtml
) and I might have a half inch of clearance. Maybe it's my motor mounts, I don't know. But I'm going to a Holley DP and a square bore intake (unless my Toro intake is dual pattern...car is at the shop, gonna check when I get it back), and any of the Edelbrock intakes I've shopped are at least 2 inches taller than my current intake. Obviously I won't re-use the spacer, but even that's not enough space savings on mine.
Who knows. Maybe my car is weird or I'm doing something wrong.
dogshit, did you use the A or B scoop? I'm leaning towards the B, and it will be made functional as I have a spare hood from my 86 to cut up.
