hi guys, I have a question: what kind of intake do I need to install on my engine if I have centerbolt heads, I have to pass emissions so I have to use the EGR valve and stock carb. right now I have an intake and carb (1406) from Edelbrock

thanks

You need a 87+ intake...

a regular (and cheaper) intake for a pre-87 small block works with about 30 seconds of dremel time on each of the 4 center holes..

you just have to elongate the 2 middle holes on each side of the intake.. it's literally about a minute per hole with a die grinder or dremel- and i even did one with a drill bit once, but that sucked and i don't recommend it..
