would i use the stock intake manifold if i were to use a holley 500 or will i have to buy something else? If i can use it, what are some tips on how to make it fit?

I once had an aluminum carb adapter heli-arc welded to the mounting flange of my stock manifold. I then cut and blended the openings to match the bottom of the new Holly carb. It was a little work but it made a great differance in off idle acceleration. But I used a 350 cfm carb that was meant for a Ford. Less expensive and worked great. Also, i adapted a cable to replace the mechanical linkage.
Good luck.

Mike ...

Would give more detail on how you used cable linkage setup ... cable run, connections, etc. I'm having an Opel manifold modified (similar to what you did) for a Holley 2300 (500cfm). I'm looking to run the cable around the front of the engine (avoid potential problems with acute angles and kinks) ... still haven't worked out the details.

Thanks ...

Ken
