I HAVE A 1979, WHICH I BOUGHT IN THE PROCESS OF BEING CONVERTED TO A 454,IT APPEARS THAT THERE WILL BE CLEARANCE PROBLEMS UNDER THE HOOD. HAS ANYONE DONE THIS CONVERSION, AND WHAT IS A GOOD COMBINATION FOR THE INTAKE/CARB. THAT WILL CLEAR THE HOOD. I AM CONSIDERING HOLLEY FUEL INJECTION,AS IT APPEARS IT MIGHT FIT UNDER THE HOOD.

Earlier Vettes came with 454's. It shouldn't be too difficult.

I installed a LS6 454 in my 75 vet complete with the high rise intake. I used the stock hood but had to clean up the underside and use a dropped base air cleaner and 2 inch filter.
