Unfortunately, when trying to build custom, these issues come up more than you would like. The fit you are looking for will be a trial and error type process. On rebuilds that I have done, I can say more than 2 air cleaners were purchased with different offests, some cutting, brackets, and mixing parts before it all worked together and I could close the hood :)

Any idea what you tried, mybuddy was thinking of trying fitting bottom of breather from quadrajet and cutting mine to fit over bottom, but I paid 300 for it , not sure I want to risk it. Do you know if edlebrok top base is same as quad?
