Single Snorkel Air Cleaner 69 GTO

Hey guys.

I was wondering, when I look at 69 engines I mostly see dual snorkel air cleaners, and on Firebird 400s I see the single ones. Why does my 69 GTO have a single snorkel?

Thanks,
Martin

Because you have the wrong aircleaner. Unless you have the "Turnpike Cruiser" option, not sure if that was available in 69 but I'm pretty sure it was. 2bbl carb on a 400 cu in. GTO.

You'll need the correct aircleaner assembly. GTO had a chrome lid too with no decal.

Sure that there weren't any 400-4's with this air cleaner? I've seen a few but they mostly have 2 snorkels

I believe the california "smog pump" cars had a single snorkel air cleaner.

I know my 69 came with the dual snorkel air cleaner and decal-less chrome top. I still have them.

The Buick style decal on top of the cover is an aftermarket add on, as well. The 400 engine equipped cars did not come with any "400-4" or "400-2" decals. One of my pet peeves. The car will go faster if you remove the Buick decal.
