Hi everyone! I am trying to attach a pair of original carter 2x4 air cleaners to a pair of edelbrocks. I tried the mr gasket air cleaner adapters in reverse but that will not work. Any ideas? I am not interested in cutting or altering my factory air cleaners. There must be a adapter or something, I have seen pics but just not sure what was used. Thanks in advance!

In this case you have to make your own bases or customize the originals. My plan is to buy 2 large aftermarket air cleaners with large flat bases. From there I'm going to cut out the oval shape and go from there. I was also thinking about taking the original bases and enlarging the openings with these. All trial and error unfortunately..

Thanks, I was just looking at those spacers too. I am thinking that should go over and against the factory carter base without modifications, as long as it is not making the air cleaners sit too high for hood clearance, I think I will try the spacers and report back! Thanks!
