the throttle body pressure hat is really no big deal, the diameter and height is pretty standard for a regular chevy v8 with a small carb.

i used to bolt air cleaners onto a g10 throttle body that were made for chevy v8 engines all the time.

the first places i'd look for the pressure hat are jeg's and summit racing. i used to see cast aluminum hats on ebay from time to time.
