I've had my 67 for 11 years now and am finally getting around to replacing the intake manifold. The 327 engine is the original but I have an Edelbrock 1406 Performance Carb on it which does not not match up perfectly to the original cast iron intake so there is a spacer between the two. The spacer raises the carb so high that I have to use a very short air breather and the the hood BARELY closes. Oh....I should have mentioned that I am not a mechanic, just a wannabe, so please be patient with me as I try to describe this as best I can.
I have found an Edelbrock 350-2703 intake that appears to be a perfect match for my carb but would like to know if I may run into any problems when trying to install the new intake. Will the new Edelbrock intake fit perfectly to the engine? Will I need any additional parts/pieces to make this transition? Any concerns replacing a cast iron intake with an aluminum intake? What about performance? I will have a family machanic do the work since I know "DIDDLY" about this.
I was also able to find the exact intake at a local parts store for $40 less than one of the BIG BOY on-line stores.
Thanks in advance for any advice/direction or help.
