If you want, i could send you the EFI filler one to look at, maybe trial fit and see how it goes, its an option, then you will know what you need before you order them

thanks brett but i can see in the pic that sprint ed showed me that it will foul on the intake no matter what..

the truck ones fit fine(filler goes on passenger side) and all you have to do is blank off a breather hole that ends up under the intake plenum towards the rear of the motor anyway..

oh yes need to make a new breather pipe, but thats nothing.

Get the truck ones. The filler tube ispressed in just and is of thin metal. Could botch it by welding.

Yep I have Edelbrock valve covers and the filler is on passengers side, in front of throttle body..I used some exhaust tube that pressed fitted into r/cover then tig welded old screw oil filler s it looks original.. Even though its on passengers side.... I didn't block off the PCV on driver side I just routed it back to aircleaner.. They need all the crankcase breathing they can get...

I used the truck ones with my GT40P heads but had to take out the splash plates under the filler tube and PCV breather.Had to die grind casting lugs on the inside and use double gaskets to get enough clearance with roller rockers.Blanked off the PCV breather hole with a alluminium bung welded on the inside and my filler tube had a breather pipe to run a hose back to the T/B.

ok for anyone that gets afr heads, retap the exhaust bolt threads.. but they only go in so deep so dont go overboard... they're just crap threads. very crap.

if you're exhaust bolts are 1" long they'l likely be too long. you need 3/4".

afr tell u a bunch of stuff but they dont tell you this.
