Predator carb

Hi Folks,

I have bought a Predator Carby for my XB Falcon running a 351 Cleveland.

I want to put an Edelbrock Air Gap manifold with the Predator but am a bit concerned about bonnet clearance.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Re: Predator carb

Welcome aboard! Both manufacturers should give you height, get some play-doh and place it on top of the air cleaner and GENTLY shut the hood, you'll have an idea of what stack height's available. Oh, I know someone who didn't do it gently... it will leave a lump.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

Re: Predator carb

wont stay under the bonnet (hood) you will have to cut a hole the predator is a tall sqare ugly carb and looks wrong on any v8.

that said go looking for a aftermarket efi set up insted. it fit and forget on the big clevland.

HOMER: can do things the right way, the wrong way or the MAX POWER way!
LISA: isnt the max power way the wrong way?
HOMER: yes but, FASTER!
