I just bought an '86 T-Type with a S2 engine. Currently has a carb manifold and a Precision 90-deg plenum, which makes it tall enough to necessitate a cowl hood (which I don't care for). What intake manifolds are available that will provide clearance to a stock-style hood?
Mine has about an inch cut from the intake. No issues at all. As a matter of fact that is the setup on about 95% of stage 2 headed motors and I don't recall seeing a cowl hood on a Turbo Buick in a very long time.
