Judging from the engine pic, the L-88 hood would work nicely with some room to spare. See my signature for pics of hood to judge.

You should have plenty of room. I'm running an airgap RPM with a 1" carb spacer and standard 14" air cleaner with no clearance issues.
BTW, engine looks

Me confused ... you refer to 'our engines...' and 'we use...' at your post at this thread:http://forums.corvetteforum.com/show...post1556456455 ... indicating you either own or are employed within a shop that builds hi-po sbc motors ... but you've apparently 'just purchased this engine for my 74'. Me confused; what gives?
