I recently purchased an edelbrock STR10 crossram intake. It has two 650 double pump holley's and the linkage with it. I plan on putting this on my 69 Z/28 show car and would like some help. I only drive the car to shows so it gets less than 3000 miles per year. My questions are:
Will this fit under my cowl hood?
What type fuel lines and how do I run them?
Do I need a cable throttle linkage or will the stock one work?
What type alternater bracket do I need?
Does anyone make an oval air cleaner under $500 dollars?
I'm running a 350 with 480-512 lift cam, headers, 4 speed, and 355 gears in the rear. Any information or help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Vic Edelbrock is running one of these on his Smokey Yunik 67 Camaro vintage racer.
That car has a stock flat hood with the cowl plenum setup, not the cowl induction hood.

So it should fit under a cowl hood. I'd sure look at the repro crossram aircleaners that seal to the hood and are the oval shape.

There is an early and late version and the late is better breathing with taller filter element.
"Camaro Untold Secrets" By Wayne Guinn is an exelent book with photos of the origonal crossram setup.
Here is the web page. http://www.camaro-untoldsecrets.com/welcome_fs.htm

I think this manifold had linkage that was designed to work with a throttle arm like the stock Camaro.
The factory crossram used the cable throttle off the 6 cyl Camaros.
The factory crossram had a steel shield at the rear of one carb to prevent fuel from hitting the distributor.
I think this would be a good idea for you to duplicate on your car for safety.

One of the big problems is uneven fuel delivery from cyl to cyl. They are best set up on the engine dyno.
The GM manifold has fuel dams incorporated in the casting to direct wet fuel flow to the lean cylinders.
I'd build as big an engine as possible to help "tame" this manifold, a 383 or 400. I think would run better on the street.

I've been considering converting the one I have for fuel injection and making it look similar to a factory setup.
This would "cure" the distribution problem.
But most of the injectors would have to be put inside the manifold to fit.

David, Thanks for the info, that will be very helpful since I have only seen one of these in my lifetime a couple years ago. What about the alternater bracket, will I have to make any big changes? It looks like I might just have to put on a new upper bracket. I'm new to team camaro and I'm sure glad I found the web site. Thanks again.

Just use a flat bar type upper bracket that doesn't attach to the thermostat housing. You can cut yours down to work. I will sell you a Repo Air cleaner for 300.00 plus shipping. Measure the air cleaner stud distances to be sure the Air cleaner wil fit.

clill, thanks for the info on the bracket, I thought that's the one I could use. Also, thanks for the offer on the air cleaner but I just purchased the intake, carbs, and a new cam so my budget is a little tight for now. I might have to use two small air cleaners, I'm thinking about using edelbrocks pro-flow ones for now. Any other info will be greatly appreciated.
thanks again, Jack

That Smokey Ram is supposed to be a very good manifold.
