best way I can hopefully explain to give you an idea is, if you
went to your
carburetor mounting studs that hold your carburetor
to the intake manifold and then, at carb mounting surface height
measure outward from the stud (out across the engine toward the valve
cover, ie imagine 'the from fender to fender way' ) about an 1 1/8" to
1 1/4" from the center of your carb mounting bolt, then drop
an imaginery plumb line down to the top of the intake manifold port
runner in that vicinity, and then make a mark here. This is where
the overall height figures would pretty much be taken from, it is
from this point that you can measure the distance up to or through
your hood to give you an idea of the height of the unit above your
particular engine when mounted. For example an even tube IN600 as
supplied would be 19" above this point and a staggered IN600
would be 20 1/2" above this point.
if the tubes were cut down so the IN600's overall height was made
as low as
it could 'easily' be made its overall height from
this point would be around 16"
can carry on and go shorter than 16" by useing staggered
tube lengths, probably to around 15", but the absolute Shortest
the IN600 can ever be made is with even tubes and is 14 5/8" (requires
careful trimming of ram tube tops where they converge as the tubes
The above way of measuring things up is the most accurate way of
figuring the installed height when there might be a height restriction
or a hood or whatever in the way.
You should be able to get a get a pretty accurate measurement doing
it this way
SHIPPED WITH A 2 1/2" HIGH AIR FILTER ELEMENT
You can change air fiter element heights inside the IN600 when installing,
you can go to a lower 2" filter element if your intake manifold
carb pad is a up around the 5 1/2", or even a taller 3" element
which can be more desirable in larger engines but you will need a
manifold lower carb pad height of around 4 1/2" or below, this
option can also be used in the installation to compensate for different
carb pad heights on the many different manifolds but REMEMBER AIR
FILTER HEIGHT DIFFERENCES WILL NOT CHANGE THE actual OVERALL HEIGHT
HEIGHT OF IN600 ABOVE CARBURETOR NECK
Below is the height of the unit above the carburetor neck (where
an air filter would normally sit on) with a 2 1/2" filter installed
(as shipped). This measurement is not necessarily the height that
you can determine for the finished installation through the hood
because in some installations you may have to put a spacer under
the carburetor to raise it during the installation if your manifold
has a low carburetor pad height. Measuring IN600 installed height
'section above' is better for determining finished installed height
Carburetor neck to top of IN600 with 'even tubes' 13 1/2"
Carburetor neck to top of IN600 with 'staggered tubes' 15"
MEASURING FROM CENTER OF CARB TO FRONT AND BACK
When the StreetInduction is mounted onto the carburetor
basic measurement from the center of the carburetor to the front
of the base is approximately
basic measurement from the center of the carburetor to the back
of the base is approximately
These measurements are taken at the lower part of the StreetInduction
THE TUBES ARE:
tubes 7 5/8"
tubes 5 7/8"
Shortest that tubes could physically be cut to 3"
With the ram tube tops on they are
tubes 8 1/2"
then insert into induction body 1", so their effective
length sticking out, with the ram tube tops, is 9 3/4" for the
long tube, and 7 1/2" for the short tube.
STAGGERED OR EVEN TUBE ARRANGEMENT
The tube lengths as supplied with the StreetInduction are 4 long
and 4 short, If you want to run an even system you just cut the 4
long ones down to the same length as the short ones.
If you have already decided that you want to run an 'even tube'
setup let me know and I will ship it this way so you don't have to
do the cutting.
If you are undecided, you can leave the unit to be shipped with
the 4 longs and 4 shorts and then when you get it you can put the
4 short tubes in the front and have a look and see if you like it
The ram tube tops just slip on nicely so you can play around with
the desired height and once you have decided on finished height,
you then use clear silicone to fix them permanently to the tubes.
Don't forget to spend the time to carefully wipe the tubes clean
from excess silicone and finally use a solvent to fully finish clean
