Here are a couple of pics, one with the 13" Ford air cleaner, one showing the air cleaner hitting the distributor and one of the underside of the air cleaner.
thanks uibalnme! Does the offset still flow well?
All it does is move the filter about 1.5” back. That should‘t affect flow. There are also offset drop bases that allow the use of taller filters. I had an offset drop base and used a filter top. I never had any problems with it. Way more filter surface area than I needed.thanks uibalnme! Does the offset still flow well?
