Should I change manifolds now?
The bubbled hood provides a bit more space. There is now 4" clearance from the front top of the air cleaner to the bubble. I currently have a 14" dia. 3" tall air cleaner but I will probably go to a snorkle air cleaner. Would it be more beneficial to see if I could fit a Victor intake with the current air filter height, or try a carb spacer and go to 4" or 5" air cleaner?
