No - it won't. Been there, done that. And your right - the low-pro doesn't breathe as well, but there are bigger low-pro's availible around on the internet. The 1.75" one will run alright - the difference isn't that noticeable really. Really irk's me that the stupid redline kit comes with the tall filter - makes you spend another $10 on a filter, that your supposed to get with the Kit. I personally reccomend against the Kit. There was a post a while back from a place in Canada that will do a "custom" kit for $325 shipped. Including the linkage kit (doesn't come with the redline kits), the air filter of your choice, and a brand new carb. Pretty good deal if you ask me.
i rebuilt the weber ($10 at the junkyard) myself. got the air filter for $12 from my mechanic friend. got the filter frame for dimes at a junkyard. the one thing that pisses me off is that the most expensive piece for me is the adaptor ($50 from redline) and it is poorly drilled and i suspect came w/ the wrong hardware. arggh. i'm thinking that i will send this back with a note to take pride in what they do. $50 is overpriced for this piece unless it is quality.

I never had any problems with either of my webers clearing, neither my 32/36 with the tall filter, or my 28/36 with a short filter, and the car that the webers were in was not lifted...
what were those cars?

MY experience is with THE OFFICIAL kit from Redline on my 84 wagon (VERY good motor mounts), and when I closed the hood, it bent the filter frame. You could tell where it hit, and driving like that would be BAD. I'm guessing you would need another 1/2" or so to be safe from it hitting on vibration.
You say you got it from a JY - what is it? If it's a Holley 5200 (DFV), you'll be dissapointed with it compared to a true DGV..... The venturi's are tiny in comparison. In fact, it only widens out to the same "32/36" as the DGV at the bottom of the carb. Pretty silly really.

and i tell you, the adapter that redline sent me is crappy workmanship.

BTW - they are ALL DGAV's. Never seen one stamped DGEV. Mine is stamped DGAV, and it's electric. Probably wasn't "substituted" - it's stock.
