Will a Victor jr. intake manifold on top of a 302 fit under the hood of a 68 cougar, without modifications to the hood?

I'm not sure, I had a 351 victor jr once and there pretty tall. Maybe without a carb spacer and a low profile air cleaner. You will have to get out a tape measure to find out for sure. Are you sure really want a victor jr anyway? They are not really the best for most street applications. mm

Absolutely will fit. I did it. 302 with 1" spacer, Holley 650, and 3" air cleaner. It really isn't the best for the street though. You lose too much bottom end torque.

I have a question. 302, 650 holley, 4v heads, headers, 2.5" exhaust, comp cam 230/236 @.50 w/520/523 lift. 4 speed. Car now seems slower than before with a milder cam. My rear gears @3.00 the problem? Would 3.55 make a big difference? Thanks!

Was Victor jr >>>now Gears

The gears will make a huge improvement!!! I have a 357w with a 234/[email protected] and 510/520 dart II's 10.5:1 I am running an AOD with 3:73's right now but I started with 3:00 gears then I went to 3:50's then to 3:73's but if I didn't do so much freeway driving in her she would get some 4:11's becuse with the 3:73's it still lugs at 55-60 in OD and it would even like some more gear off the line with my cam. I'm sure the 275/60/15's add to the problem, they are a pretty tall tire.
