Re: 327 Intake/Carb combo

I would look for an intake (cast iron or other) that will fit the quadrajet with the choke well and oil fill hole. Use the quadrajet and it will look original and still perform well. Paint the intake orange if needed and use a SS style air cleaner.

Re: 327 Intake/Carb combo

This is the best advice you got:

Used a cast iron intake and a Rochester QuadraJet.

Your best bet would be to score an intake, carb and air cleaner set up all from the same car, preferably the same year as your car.

Hopefully, you find someone "upgrading" to aluminum manifold, holley and an open element air cleaner. You may even find an old full size Chevy that someone is getting ready to part out.

Re: 327 Intake/Carb combo

More great information, and I think I will go with the Speed Demon carburetor. Should I be looking for a specific model of performer for my 327? I have the oil fill tube. Will I need to do any modifications to accommodate the performer intake? If there is a thread on it, just point me to it.

Thanks!

John if you are worried about the Rochester Carburetor due to the problem it offers even knowledgable mechanics with tuning there is the option of a modular Holley carb that has a spread bore form.

It used to be sold as a 650 or an 850 cfm carburetor but I believe only the 650 is still in production.

Re: 327 Intake/Carb combo

Thanks, Big Dave and all. I was also leaning toward moving away from the divorced choke setup, to an electric choke. Any particular pros and cons to that move?

Re: 327 Intake/Carb combo

Holley has an electric choke conversing kit for $60.

The only cons I can think of is you'll have to install it and run some power to it.


or of course get something with it installed already

you can buy a intake with or with out a hole just ask the place you will get it from, no mods needed to the intake. the demon fits on the intake with no problems. you will need to get a 1" spacer for the top of the carb if you want to run the original air cleaner. if you go aftermarket air cleaner you can get one with the spacer built in it. you can also get one from a wrecking yard from a 87 to 94 suburban I think with a throttle body they are made out of metal the spacer you get from a speed shop is plastic. they make some from aluminum
this the intake

and this is the spacer you mite have to file or grind abit but it fits :P

I had one of the spread bore Holleys on my 327 before I had the engine rebuilt. It's still sitting on my bench if you're interested in it. Hasn't been used in years but was rebuilt just before I took the car off the road for the winter.
