I HAVE AN EDELBROCK RPM INTAKE ON A 400 ENGINE WITH AIR CLEANER/HOOD CLEARANCE ISSUE. I'VE TRIED A 2" WIDTH AIR CLEANER, DIFFERENT SIZE DROP AIR CLEANER BASES. ANYONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS TO SOLVE HOOD CLEARANCE ISSUE WITH OUT REPLACING STOCK HOOD?

You'd replace the intake before the hood. Have you looked at the drop bases? There's many topics on these over the years on every firebird forum.

I found over the years that the eddy Performer rpm will not work on a TA with a stock air cleaner, probably will need a drop base air cleaner. If you tried the performer intake it pretty much is close to the stock height, the performer rpm is a bit higher. I tried one on my old 79 TA and it rub against the hood, I just went back to a stock one.
