    I would try one off a Camaro or GTO. I have them on my 78 and there is a lot of clearance and pointing in the right direction. Others fit too, I just not sure on which ones.

    Air injection. On newer stuff it's called secondary air injection. It's used to clean up exhaust emissions at start up. Fresh air comes from the belt driven air pump.

    Nope, not necessary. Unlees You are in a state that does emission testing.
    You can buy plugs that will seal off them holes.
