I have done this on all mine over the years. Just brackets. The biggest thing is the hood I want to say '71 to '76 are the same and '77 to '81 are the same. '71 to '76 have a rounded center line and the front edge is pointed.

Just curious if anyone has found a way to get an Edelbrock performer RPM intake under a early Ď70s Formula hood? I have read you need to move to a Trans Am hood with different air cleaner.

I noticed when I closed the hood and smash play dough between the hood and air cleaner it was around 3/4 of an inch at its worst if I remember right. I would need a real low drop base if there is any hope at all.

I just hear its the best intake for a Pontiac and I donít want to give up my hood.

Oil pressure when warmed up will always be lower at idle and higher when accelerating. Put a mechanical gauge in to really make sure oil pressure is good because stock gauges are not good.

I have a Ď91 Firebird 305. The oil pressure gauge doesnít stay consistent after car warms up and I come to a stop. It drops to bottom but doesnít affect how the car runs.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Questions and Answers / Re: Headlight Not Opening
« Last post by firebirdclub on August 03, 2020, 01:45:05 PM »
I am not sure if itís the same as my Ď88 model, but mine had a headlight module that had the relays molded inside it. I located it and would tap on it while operating the switch on and off and it would operate after I tapped on it.
I found a new module on eBay and replaced it and it has been working ever since. If this does not work, I would suggest replacing the motor.
