Question Best intake/ filter for my 302?

Hello!

I am looking at a filter/ fitler holder for my 302. I need it to be low-lying to fit under the supra's bonnet. I am intending to use cold air intake for it. Which is best for me? The carby is a holley 750 vac secs. Manifold is a genuine boss 302.
I was told to expect around 450-500hp when the engine is fully built, so it needs to be good quality and have large potential.

Thanks guys!
Blake.

Actually in the States you can get them caps for they use them in blow through turbo/ blown applications...Holley agents here should stock them...VPW ??

Re: Best intake/ filter for my 302?

imo aftermarket either Edelbrock rpm or Twisted Wedge track heat around $1100 for inlet....Other than that any efi engine.. EL ll onwards is better for efi parts..

In your case the U.S mustang inlet etc could be the go as it may not matter which way inlet is facing.. There MAY be some laying around in peoples garages.. Cheap....
