Hi Guys,
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.

hi

if you own a 67 model, juste remember that with the new intake you 'll need also a new valves cover because most of the after market intakes  don't where oil tube for filling...
