Edelbrock Air Gap (7501) with Edelbrock 1400 Carb

Hi All,

Just wondering if anyone has experience with this setup? My old C3BX manifold has a leak where someone tapped a hole to far for the power steering pump so it's time to replace it. I like the look and what I have read about the 7501 Air Gap so I picked one up before I gave much thought into which carb I had. I am running an Edelbrock 1400 (EGR), the installation instructions for the intake say that I should be running a 1405 or 1406 (or bigger???)but looking at the specs the main difference to the 1400 is just that it is emissions compliant.

I have a 1969 Camaro, 350\TH350 Fuelie (Camel Hump) Heads that I am not sure on the spec and a cam that I am also not sure about, Doug's Try-Y headers and an MSD HEI.

So my question(s) are...

Is my current carb just fine?
Is anyone else using a similar setup and how is it working for you?
Does the EGR capabilities take away from performance or could I rebuild\rejet to get close to the 1405?

Just install a block-off plate on the egr flange. I'm not aware of any 1st gen Camaro having egr. It sucks.
