I tried installing shorty carb boots on my 98 Form Z and the carbs now are touching bolt heads on each carb ! Has anybody else had that problem and what did you do to correct it to still use the short carb boots?

Did you make sure that you are using the straight short boots? If you use the angled ones, the carbs touch the oil pump. Be sure to use the intake boots from a 95 Mach 1 or similar pattern.

I have the angled ones ! So I'll have to check out the other ones . Will that have any effect on the carbs if they are siiting at an angle ? Thanks

the carbs will be pointing straing in  line with the engine...if there is any effect by this angle, I would think that the fuel has a more direct route to the engine

The short boots that I put on my 99 670HO were suppposed to be from a 95 Mach 1.  They are angled and they fit excellent.  Another guy I know went to the Doo dealer and asked for carb boots from a 95 Mach 1 and got different boots than I did!  His were straight.  He had a clearance problem of some sort and also burned his engine down!
