As someone once said, “ Some people have a way with words. Other people,,not, have way, I guess.” Here’s what I hope is a self explanatory pictorial of how I deal with throttle/kickdown issues by modifying the factory bracket when replacing a 2bbl with an aftermarket intake and 4bbl. As we see, the height difference is where the heartache begins....also note how much higher the thermostat is on the aftermarket intake. This is a 360 2bbl intake and a aluminum Wieand 2p 180 intake side by side comparison. Accessories such as AC compressors may be affected by such modifications as well.
