Hello Camaro Gurus...
I am re doing a 67 RS Camaro and will be puting in a 454 big block
when the car body is finished. I bought an SS hood because I love the
looks. I called the Canadian company Air Inlet Systems for some info
on their Ram Air Box air filter. The guy told me that a camaro with
an SS hood and a big block is going to be a rude awakening for me and
I am going to have problems fitting any air filter under that hood,
never mind his Ram Air Box. The manifold I will be using is an
Edelbrock Performer RPM. Does anyone have any experience with this
set up and if so do you have any clearance issues and what do you use
as an air filter? I'm sure there are a ton of camaros with big
blocks and SS hoods out there. Afterall the 396 came in the camaro
from the factory, but not mine. Is the Performer RPM that much of a
problem? He told me that the pins of the louvers on the hood come
down and cause clearance problems. If anyone has any info on this that
could help me out I'd appreciate it.
