375HP/396 Intake on a 325HP/396 Heads
I'm new to the Chevy Camaro world, but not the forum world. Before getting flamed, I did a search a couple of weeks ago to learn which intake manifold I could put on a 396 and still use the louvered hood on my '69 Camaro. In reading all those threads, I read where the square port 375HP aluminum intake could be used on 396 with oval port heads. However, I can't find those threads tonight - must be using different keywords or their order.
What intake manifold gaskets need to be used and what are the tricks to using the square port intake on the oval port heads?
For your information, I inherited a 1969 Camaro SS that is equppied with the 325HP 396. My uncle, who bought the car new in May 1969, added the 375HP solid lifter cam around 1971. I want to add the 375HP intake for appearance purposes (and a little more performance) and to use the Holley 780. I want to eventually get the right 375HP heads one day.
