This assembly is correct for the following 1975-76 models:
Trans Am with 400 / 455 Pontiac engine
*It can fit 78-79 models by using the earlier style offset breather filter tube
*It will also fit 73-74 400s - however, these did not come with the ported vacuum sensor in the side of the base. 77 W-72 cars used the round 4" air cleaner. Note that this air cleaner is specific to 75-76 due to the orientation of the breather filter inlet location whereas 78-79 assemblies had it perpendicular to the front of the assembly. 74 assemblies did not feature the multi-vacuum port on the side.
Note: this will NOT fit the L80 403 Olds engines or Pontiac 301/Chevrolet 305/350 engines due to the offset of the shaker scoop, as well as the difference in carburetor flange drop.
The assembly will fit factory 4 barrel Quadrajet carburetors with a 5 1/8" diameter flange, as well as Holley (it will NOT fit double pumpers; i.e. models 4150/4160), Carter/Edelbrock variations without an electric choke (some adjustment to the carburetor alignment tangs may be required). If you have modified your carburetor, distributor, or intake manifold, please inquire first prior to purchase to ensure fitment is correct. Return requests for non-fitment will not be honored.
