Cobra oval air cleaner & valve covers - BB

Curious how many have put on the Cobra Air Cleaner and Valve covers on their big block. Any clearance issues.

***NEVERMIND! I made a template out of cardboard and have seen one picture of a member who has this setup already...***


Thanks, Randy

I was looking for water heater inlet fitting but found one already!

Thumbs up Cobra dress up package for 390 BB ...

We installed the oval Cobra air cleaner and had no clearance problems. When I get the time to finally install them, I did also buy the big block Cobra Le Mans valve covers to complete the Cobra package ...

I think fitment of an oval air cleaner would partially depend upon the intake manifold. Some aftermarket ones might possibly cause a problem.

Same with carburetors.

I agree with the intake/carb setup. Hi-rise no way would work.

This is the look I'm after.

My cardboard template worked so its a go!

Just a point, a 68 GT 500 came with an oval that fit just fine. They made them with aluminum intakes and Holley carbs so it should be no issue for most similar apps. There are definitely high rise intakes that won't work but many do. Hawkrod
