If you are trying to use a factory EFI intake with the DOVE's it won't work. the EFI heads are different, so the intake won't match up. There are aftermarket intakes that will work with the Holley EFI system. If you need injector holes in the intake you can have them welded in or just use one of the bolt on EFI systems that has the injectors in the throttle body. Hope this helps.

He stated he has done several and I've seen the pic of the later model intake on the old style heads.

Ok

The gaskets did not match the ports . The head ports had meat to grind and weld up , but that would be way to much work (for right now). I had the intake and and gaskets for both efi intake and dove heads . I will be using the efi heads an intake on another car .
