Intake Hood clearance

Hello, As the title says. I was wondering if my intake on the engine I have recently finished building would clear a stock 71 Camaro hood!. I have finished building my 496 and It has a holley strip dominator on it right now coupled with a quick fuel 850 double pumper. I was wondering if this would clear under a factory stock 71 Camaro hood. The car is an original ls3 402 bbd car if that changes anything. If anyone has had any personal experience with this intake please let me now if you made it fit. If not what are some suggestions of intakes that would clear? Thank you for everyones help.

Re: Intake Hood clearance

Chevy used a low-rise intake on the 402 as well as the lowering motor mounts.
To add a hi-rise intake you'll need a 2" cowl hood.

Air Gap wont fit
Eldebrock Torker II 2-O and Street Master are the only 2 intakes,that I know of,that will fit under the stock hood with a BBC

Re: Intake Hood clearance

The Street Master is the "offspring" of the original Torker, came out around 1974 in it's original version. Sounds like you have the 2nd design, the first design Street master looked just like an old Torker but with smaller plenum and runners, the redesign followed a couple years later. The first design was taller and wouldn't fit under the stock hood of many of the vehicles it was intended for. They can give decent performance and fuel economy if you're willing to play with it a little, they were designed to be an RV/Mileage manifold and while it's true they are outdated if you pick one up cheap they are still serviceable. They work pretty decent to about 4500, add a plenum divider and/or play around with different thickness 4 hole spacers on them and you can extend their RPM range to 5500 and still maintain decent low end. There was a test in Car Craft where they tested all of the big block Chevy Edelbrock intakes...again..IIRC..the Torker was the worst and RPM Air Gap did the best. Another example I found was an engine with 10.1 comp, 468 Cid with a 238 duration @.050 hyd roller, if I remember right it made 608 HP and I think it hit in the 590's for TQ, the Torker II made 20 hp and 20 tq. less than the RPM air gap.

Re: Intake Hood clearance

There ain't no hood clearance if you use an Edlebrock Hi-Rise manifold with a Drop Breather plate over your Holley. 2" at the most where as the Camaro Hood is designed to accept it with a simple LT1 Scoop and cut your hood.

GM designed it that way - Just look at the Hood Bracing.
