    Hi all,

    I have a 1970 Camaro with a 396 BBC. Will a Victor jr and 850cfm holley fit under a stock '70 hood? Not fussed if it's with or without air cleaner.

    Thanks :bowtie:

    No it will not. The only intake I know of is the Eddy Torker II, it would most likely perform better as well. That is a pretty big intake for a 396.

    Thanks for the reply. My mechanic recommended me the vic jr with 850cfm double pumper and said it should stay under the hood. Should be ok for the 396/402 cause it's got a cam and good flowing heads

    Problem with that intake on a 396 is it has way too much plenum so the signal to the Carburetor is going to be poor. If you have not bought the intake yet and need it to fit under the hood the Torker II is about all that's out there for the 2nd gens with a flat hood. I traded my last Torker II to a guy with a big single plane as he could not get it under the hood of his car.

    Well that pretty interesting looking at the streetmaster, it does look a lot like the Torker 2.0, I do know that the plenum is a little better on the Torker 2.0 but the runners look better on the streetmater. There we go, now there are 2 to choose from.

    The manifold that is currently on it is a Holley winters street dominator, and I have an edelbrock streetmaster 2-O sitting in the shed. Looking for some more top end with the Vic jr, so if thats the case I may have to go with a cowl hood even though I prefer the car with the lines of a stock flat hood

    Look for a holley strip dominator, might be a happy medium. The Victor Jr won't fit under a stock hood.

    Didn't think of that one, the Holley is a pretty good single plane intake. A good friend just made 567hp and 571tq. with my ported Strip Dominator.

    That's not a bad option to look at. My motor at the moment is 8.5 compression small dome pistons with 820 cast iron heads. It's got a mild cam in it with 2" long tube headers. Thinking of putting an edelbrock performer/Weiand street warrior dual planes. Will they clear the stock 70 hood running without an air filter?
