I used the mr gasket drop base on an edelbrock 500cfm with electric choke on my 4.6 rover with a Buick 215 intake manifold. It was necessary to modify base to clear the choke body. Everything else fits easily and about 3/4" hood clearance when closed

They also make offset drop bases. If hood clearance is an issue, those can help by shifting the air cleaner toward the back a bit. That also might let you use a bit less of a drop too..
