  • Air Cleaner conversion...From a 440 6 pack, to a 426 Hemi Dual Quad...

    Met a guy this summer with a 1966 426 Hemi Satellite. Wanted a 440-6 pack style air cleaner under the hood. He was told "It couldn't be done" by everyone he talked to. I guess I don't know those guys, because it could be done. Hardest part was making the "quicky tooling" to press a lip for the carb holes. Heres some pics...

          Post a pic with the setup on the car. I bet guys will stand around and argue that you have a six pack on th Hemi.

              I was thinking the same thing about it being an aftermarket aircleaner. I love it when people tell me it can't be done. I take it as a personal challange, and like to prove them wrong.
