302 2bbl to 4bbl conversion
Sorry if this is a duplicate.   First post.  I left it to check something and couldn't find it again.  Anyway, as part of my 302 performance upgrade, I swapped out my 2bbl for an Edelbrock 600 4bbl and retained the air cleaner and ducting from the 2bbl.  Now, I wonder whether the setup has sufficient air volume flow to supply the demand of the 600.  Would anyone know (or speculate?)
So you did a 2v to 4v intake adapter plate? Those aren't really designed for that sort of fuel quantities. I'd do a 4v intake even if it's a stock one. Plus its a winsdor and performance intakes are cheap and plentiful

Gas is for cleaning parts, alcohol is for drinkin, nitro is for racin
Per the follow-up with Studdley, I recommend installing a decent set of headers to help open up the engine. Please remember the engine is an air pump. The more in and out, the more power is obtained!

It'll be fine. Been running stock air cleaner housings for decades on mild 302s with 4V and headers.

Thanks, Hemikiller.  Adapter plate?  Didn't the asteroid take those out, along with the other dinosaurs?  I remember looking at those, when I had my first car...1952 Buick Special with a 263 straight 8...wondered if the 4bbl off a 322 Roadmaster would work...never tried it (speaking of dinosaurs.)
Studdley, never heard of a Winsdor!  whistling

No, there are still adapter plates out there.

I agree, just use your stock air filter until you do further upgrades. Just keep a clean filter element in it, or even get a K&N.
