I've owned 3 of these early Nova's. The small block is exceptionally tight in the bay. I had headers and you have to drop the drivers side the change the oil filter and the spark plugs are extremely difficult to access. The 327 was more common than most V8's and in the 80's tunnel rams were very popular. That kit is a very 80''s style so pics should not be an issue knowing that. Good luck.

Those are dual Holly 750 cfm carberators on a hi rise intake manifold. Mounted on a 350 or 327 cid engine.

Dioguy-I believe you may be looking for a 327 Chevy engine with tunnel ram-

Is this what you are looking for?  If so, then there are many examples to be viewed on Google.

Ok, I'm admittedly new to cars but I'm having trouble with my build. The issue is finding reference pictures for this engine. I know its a 327 block and thats not hard to find but the kit has dual carbs and velocity stacks are extremely difficult. I know I'm just doing something wrong in my searches.

Any pointers are appreciated!
