I searched the archives and never found an answer to this question...
I have a friend with a 69 who wants to drop in a big block with a Dart intake and a 1" spacer. Has anyone here done this, and if so, what size cowl hood works? What size air filter? We're thinking a 4" cowl would clear a 4" filter. Any input or ideas?
I would say he'll have to use the 4" cowl, because with a weiand x-celerator intake, heat shield plate and 4" air filter on a moroso air cleaner and a stock cowl hood, I may have 1/2" of clearance. This is why I went back to a 3" element. And by looking at the Dart intake and knowing he will be using a 1" spacer, he'll need the extra height.

I am in the process of trying to get an air cleaner to fit under my 4" cowl. I have a Holley strip Dominator with a dominator on it. It is a 4150 manifold so I had to use and adapter. I just ordered a K&N 16" drop base a/c with a 3" element. Should be here tomorrow. If it fits I'll post pics on my website. I did get this setup to fit my stock cowl but with no a/c. Check it out.
