I have an 86 2 door caprice which I would like to put a 454 in this summer.
Does anyone know if that would fit under the hood without a scoop?
I was planning on putting and edelbrock air gap intake on but I doubt that would fit under the hood.
If I put a lower profile edelbrock intake does anyone know if it might fit without a scoop?

Thanks for your help.

I have not seen that particular swap but I would think a stock intake and carb would fit using a low rise air cleaner.
You could consider a cowl hood to gain clearance and then be able to install the high rise intake.

A drop base air cleaner will solve the problem.
