    I just purchased a factory 350 4v intake and a gs350 rochester.

    Any advice?

    what kind of drivability improvements will i see?

    I also want to use a factory air cleaner. what could i use?

    If for street use improved gas mileage, If.....if you stay out of the secondary's, hard acceleration, etc...

    I would like to get your old Rochester 2 bbl carb. if you haven't tossed it.

    I prefer the 2 bbl regardless of the economy of the 4 bbl carb. It is better for off roading, hill climbs and not the flooding probs on inclines with 4 bbl Rochesters.

    As for an air cleaner I don't have any suggestions, I don't think the old 2 bbl air cleaner will adapt to the Rochester 4 bbl carb.

    Thanks, Mac

    I think you can use a Buick air cleaner asembly in place of the Jeep unit. A GS air cleaner will not work without all of the specific brackets, studs, etc. and then you would have to modify the hood to work with the GS air cleaner.
