Intake clearance help!!

Can I use a TFS track heat upper/lower intake with a 3/8" spacer and clear the stock hood? Will a 1" spacer fit?

Not sure, use some playdoh on top of your stock intake to see how much clearance you have, then figure out how much higher the new parts are than stock.

Should fit fine under the short block 302, not sure bout a long block.

But do as Trojan said, the playdoh/clay is the easiest way to tell.!

You really have no idea what a short block and long block are... do you?


OP, alot of guys get away with the 3/8" spacer. I have seen the 1" run before, but you have to remove the insulation off the underside of the hood, and depending on the intake, you might have to modify some of the support braces.

Double.
Look man if your gonna be stuck up about everything that someone say then go to a different forum. That's twice you've done that on something I've said.
If your gonna give your input or "correct" somebody be polite about it. No need to be a jerk.

For the record a long block is longer, taller, an wider. Look your **** up.

I agree.the ME forum family have respect and consideration for each other.there are many different experience levels on here.everyone needs a correction now and then but it can be done nicely. With that being said here is the difference:

A long block is basically a complete engine assembly. Usually with the heads, intake, cam and oil pan already installer. Where as a short block is the engine block itself, and the internals... that's it.

Maybe you should learn more about who I am, and what I've done before bashing. I've forgotten more about cars, than you are likely to ever know.

Guys. please save the attitudes and arguing for elsewhere.
The administrator here does not allow much of that.

Who you are, what you have done and what you know are not as important as how you act and present yourself online or in person.
I know quite a bit myself, but I concentrate on helping and educating rather than bashing someone for what they don't know yet.

I also understand how anyone can have a bad day and the least little thing can set you off. It happens to me too, but I just try to NOT reply or post until I have thought of a decent, non offensive way to do so.

Try to reconcile your differences, shake hands and continue helping people or asking questions as you need to.

Have a good day.
Thanks,
TH

Lol...and not to add insult to injury!!! A long block never comes with intake and oil pan, that would be a crate assembly with the addition of the cam,timing chain and cover...a long block is only the built short block with the heads installed and a lot of the time does not include the cam!
