Dynchel... it looks great, but I don't think it is from a Monte SS. My 86 is different.

The yards said they were off '87 Monte Carlo's, they didn't mention SS.  I would assume that these were off standard Monte Carlos.

I'm sorry. Totally missed that. After thinking about it for awhile you might be correct. My sister had a new 87 LS, before her husband totaled it and it did not have the same air cleaner as my SS.

It's all good, I wish I found a SS air cleaner, I had a hard enough time finding what I did.

Here's a dual cleaner I've never seen before. Looks kind of awkward, really. 1983 Hurst Olds in North Mississippi.

I'm pretty sure that is with modified, or from something else. The factory wouldn't have had a snorkel pointing towards the a/c box.

Take it to the track. I want to see what gains it gives.

My setup was worth about .2 sec reduction in ET.

Thanks Keith, I don't know if the gains would carry over to a car that runs lower mph.

That dual snorkel air cleaner looks very similar to one off a '67 Chevy II with the L79 engine. Like this one.

But the early ones didn't have the heat valves in the snorkels. Very Happy


Might be easier to find one out of an 83 Z28 with a H.O. 305.
