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.

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.

It is as fast as others, I know. The dual let's more air through for cooling down the motor, obviously, but mine has a single one and here the weather is tropical and the road to my house is very steep..
