SY1 intake

Hey fellas. I have a 67 Camaro, 30/30 cam, 2.02 heads and currently an air gap intake with a Carter 600. I want to throw on a SY1 and Fast EFI. The problem is, the intake i'm looking at doesnt have the notch for a wide EFI. Do you know if I can mill it in?

Thanks

Another question, my current intake is a Edelbrock RPM airgap. Just bought the car a month ago and im finding little things out. Has anyone seen one of these with an oil filler? Its marked RPM Performer so its not a EPS.

Kevin, as long as it has the indent for one, you should have no trouble
Milling the hole, as there is nothing underneath to watch out for.
Just stay away from front edge. I don't think your Syi intake is any
Diff than others.

I would need a better picture, but that intake doesn't look like an air gap. I have heard of people using a hole saw to cut the hole for the filler. The performer series of intakes has a boss cast in that area so the tube can be added. If that is an RPM, it is one of the best small block intakes available. I wouldn't bother changing it.

So on the SY1 I ment to say it isnt notched for a wide body distributor on the #8 runner, the current owner is running a small body. Can it be milled out for a wide body?

My current intake, here are some better pics.<a href="http://s34.photobucket.com/user/endobong/media/20150522_093903_zpsdwerfkdl.jpg.html" target="_blank">

My current intake, here are some better pics. TJ, looks like that is what was done. Comparing pictures I dont think its an air gap. I have seen where some will mill the center divider of the RPM for a gap.. but wont know till I take off the carb.

Yes, That is a Performer RPM, but not an air gap. I have never seen a SY1 intake, so I can't say if the wall thickness of the intake is enough material to mill. I would guess, No. The only reason I can think of why to use that intake is for nostalgia and you would want a small bodied distributor to be period correct any way. You can add a pertronix kit or similar to the small body to get electronic ignition.

Yes strickly for nostalgia, dont think the SY1 would have any advantage.
