    not without just a little bit of work. The 2 center bolts on the manifold are at a slightly different angle, but that is an easy fix, by either grinding or I've seen some use a tapered washer that worked great.

    hmm good question....
    I put a '87 camaro carb intake on my 1991 caprice police motor which was tbi....

    yeah the 4 center bolts in my intake are straight up and down..... that is why i went with the '87 camaro intake.... you can drill out the holes.. but check first because we did this on one of these motors exactly the same as what i have and the ports in the intake didnt quite line up.. that setup is in a '86z-28 which is gettin rebuilt anyway.....
