My dad used to turn the air cleaner cover over on his Q jet on an old Jetstar he had and his 73 olds cutlass that had the 454 in it, you think it sounds good when you tromp on the throttle before, turn the air cleaner cover upside down,
You could try that on the throttle body, just not sure what it would sound like, hell on the Jetstar he even drilled a few holes in the cover as well if I remember right, or maybe it was the 73, my memory is shot, one of them turning the cover over did nothing as it set almost the same. so he drilled some holes outside the air cleaner so that air still had to go threw the air cleaner, but let a lot more in because it didn't have to go threw the snorkel of the air cleaner.
I think the Jetstar was ether a 396 or a 425 CI engine I can't remember what year it was, mainly because it was like 1969 or so and that was before I was driving, well legally anyway
ether way they both had over 300 HP, the 425 was like 375 HP or something like that.
345 hp (257 kW) 394 cubic-inch Starfire Rocket V8 engine, in the 64 and'
425 had 370 HP. in the 65, for the life of me I can't remember what year his was.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oldsmobile_Jetstar_I
I loved those 60s cars, balls and style.
Ayup, it was a 65 http://globalcarbrands.com/...star-i/03/index.html
of course you have to remember with a Q Jet carb you are also opening up a lot more space for the 4 barrels when you open the secondary's up.
adding to the sound
Technology is great when it works,
and one big pain in the ass when it doesn't
Detroit iron rules all the rest are just toys.
