Can you run the Edelbrock Air Gap intake on a SB and still run the factory A/C?

I’m not sure if there were issues with clearance or mounting bracket so I figured I’d ask you guys.

This will be in a 1968 Barracuda.

Thanks for the help in advance!

The RPM Air-Gap and Performer RPM both have the water neck in a different location than stock. I know for sure that it interferes with A/C on later model cars that use the Sanderson compressor. It can be overcome with custom brackets - I've seen it done. Can't speak to the older stuff though.

I put an Air Gap on a 5.9 in my ‘72 Charger. Top radiator hose is on the left side. Installed a Sanden A/C compressor from ACC with their supplied brackets. Had to be a little clever with the heater hose fitting it all worked out well.
Probably have pictures stored on a flash drive if they would help.
