Could I use my intake?

by Joey M
(New Haven, Ct. USA)

Hi, I have a dual quad set up for my 59 corvette. But it was for a 245 hp motor. Could I use the same set up on the new motor that has solid lifters with 270 hp? Would this be a problem if I put this on the new motor? I know the carbs do not have the same list #s. Are they almost the same & will the motor run ok with these if I were to use tham Thanks.....Joe My email is joeygarlics at yahoo.com
