Post by: 7TransAM7 on September 13, 2010, 11:40:01 PM
Hi there i am new here i need to know if there are any other Intakes for my 1977 Trans Am It has a Shaker Hood but i am not sure of what other type of Intake it needs so that the Shaker works on it.

It came with an aftermarket and obviously it does not fit it.

Thanks

any pontiac intake will work from the 70's.   is your 400 a L78 or the W72 ? 
remember you must use a pontiac Q-jet carb to make it fit right. 
also the edelbrock part # 2156  intake will fit.
