Glad to hear you got it going good!  If it ain't one thing its another!  My father laughs at me when I p*ss and moan about doing repair after repair, he says, "That's the joys of owning a hot rod",   Unfortunately for him he can't maneuver around his car so well and calls on me to fix it for him.  That's when I laugh and tell him "That's the joys of getting old", then of course I help him fix the car!    I just wish right now some of my repairs were a lot simpler than what I'm dealing with.  But I'll never stop! I love my cars too much!

I think mine is from a truck.  Im sure you can find one to fit regardless of what it goes to.  Also if you can't get one to line up perfectly to your gooseneck on the intake you can buy those that swivel!

I always paint my aluminum intakes so any oil (or grease) that gets on it can be eaisly wiped off.  Bare aluminum will stain. (Although brake parts cleaner will remove stains from bare aluminum) however is  not kind to surrounding paint.  Just a suggestion.pirat

My mom has a '76 camaro. I never even thought of trying something like that. It would be very unique if you can pull it off.

Try googling "gm part # 333882" there are lots of links to different forums where others have asked the same question. Most of what I read said they are so so heads.

882's are decent heads, 76cc, 1.94 intake, 1.50 exhaust valves. They came stock on my 73 SS. If your looking for some more performance and have to remove the heads anyway, I'd put on some 305 heads. They have smaller chambers and will raise your compression ratio for more performance.

If you go the 305 route (that's what I have) try to find #416 h/o heads. They were made from '80 to '85. After I put them on my mild build 350 it turned the car into a tire fryer.

I have a set of 882's on my 350. I had 2.02/1.60 valves, ported and polished the ports, screw in studs and guideplates. I did this before aluminum became the norm. My friend owned a cylinder head shop and really did these heads up right for me. I have over 10 years on them since first did work to them, now I just have the valves and seats freshened up whenever I change engines. To me they have been great, and I love the power increase they gave me. I'll keep these as long as I don't crack them. Most 2.02 head or "camelhumps" don't have the holes on the sides of the heads for the alternator or a/c brackets.
