    Breather for 76 Eldorado

    I have ordered a Pro/CadIII intake and it will raise carb 4" above stock height. My question is what breather can I get that will be low profile so as not to conflict with the hood? I have heard the certain units from mid 70's Toranodos will work. Any info will be great.

    I believe you will not be able to close the hood with that intake on..

    While the engine sits on the transmission the (original) intake manifold is very low profile to keep clearance from the hood. The original intake manifold is not a bad design though. I wonder why you want to replace it. Without any other major engine mods a higher intake manifold will just result in bad performance.
