    Hello,
    What kind of bolt on could I get that pushes more air into the system? I have a 650CFM carb with a breather kit (Edelbrock Pro-Flo air cleaner, 14" diameter with 3" element (3-5/16")) on it. Is there something that I could put between the carb and the air cleaner?
    Thanks
    Adam

    you realize the less knowledgable could think you are serious? No there is nothing. Pick up some books and learn about small block motors and how to make power. Or look for articles online. You could put a supercharger on but you better have a motor built for it or run low boost.

    No man. These morons in this day and age talking all their crap about, "Cold air intakes" have got everyone brainwashed into thinking that an air filter is an acceptable way to make more horsepower. I've never understood that crap, I didn't even believe that when I was 16.

    I believed it when I was 16. It's all about marketing creating a need in the mind of consumers.
