I've never heard of that intake. I'm confused is it efi or a carb?

----------

Nevermind I google'd it. Its a carb intake. Are you asking if anyone has made brackets to mount it to the motor or to mount the carb to the intake? I guess a little more clarification would help, what is your application, is it a 302?

you're going to probably have to build a custom bracket that puts the linkage in the correct place. would have to see what you're working with, not sure if the lokar cable would be another solution. custom bracket is what I would probably do though, just because it doesn't cost anything if you have scrap metal around to work with

get a measurement of the lever on the trans, center of the bolt to center of the pin. I have a cable operate lever somewhere out in the garage and I will compare to your findings. if it's the same, then I would say chances are good.

found this on another site.
To correct the first problem, you will need to get a Lokar TV cable to replace the TV rod:

Lokar KD2AODHT - Lokar Stainless Steel Hi-Tech Kickdown Kits - Overview - SummitRacing.com

To correct the second problem, you will need to get a TV corrector bracket that bolts on to the Holley carburetor throttle lever. If you don't, the TV cable will get pulled out of adjustment every time you drive it. Out of adjustment AOD = burned up AOD.
