Hello everyone, I'm in the middle of an IAIIa build. This is going into a 1968 Firebird which will be in the factory location with an original 400 hood. The heads are being ported to 340 which means the Torker II probably won't match up with the intake runners without some modifications (welding and milling). Anyone with a first gen that has a Northwind and does it fit under stock hood? In all of my searching, I've only found one person who has indicated this will fit.

 

Just curious....thanks!

I think the Northwind is a repop of the Holley street dominator.If that is true it will fit.I have run the HSD under the hood of a 69 with the factory upper and lower RA pans.Tom
