Customer q:

I need to reduce height of air cleaner for hood closure issue. Is this a drop base air cleaner? If so does it exceed the 2" drop of my stock 66 air cleaner base?

Do you have air cleaner elements 14" diameter by 2 7/8" high instead of 3"?


ac = No

drivewheel = 2WD

engine = sp 350/385 CRATE MOTOR

fuel = Hollet Street Avenger 670 CFM

make = chevy

model = corvette

pwrbrk = Yes

pwrstr = Yes

trans = 4 SPEED

year = 1966


The Holley part number 510-120-224 is listed as having a 1" drop base. Your best option for hood clearance is the factory components.

K&N offers the following filter elements that may work for you:

14"x2.5" - 599-E-3735
14"x2-13/16" - 599-E-3742
