Hood Scoop Question
Putting a 351W (408 strocker) in my 68 coupe. AFR heads, Edelbrock air gap intake, holley 750HP (double pumper with no air horn).
Not enough hood clearance. Without the air cleaner the holley bowl vents hit the hood when closing. I'll need to cut clearance out of the hood.
I'd like to go with the Cobra Jet style scoop and keep it non-functional for now.
OR, and this is what I'd prefer is a shaker. Anyone know how much clearance is need? I know the big block version sits lower, but is there anyway I can be sure before I purchase it?
