Car looks good Jeff. What intake is that with the EFI? Is it a modified Victor, or the already bunged etc victor, or is it a TorkerII, modified. I'm having a hard time picking out which manifold it is. If it is a victor (already EFI ready or a modified N/A) I think you'll pick up some peformance just from the better plenum and larger runners, not to mentionthe EFI. Just a thought. I'm a big proponent of large plenums with boost. Sorry but I don't remember your new header crossover sizing, it looks 3 inch. Mark L

It was DOCsTA 's intake Robert Browne

I beleive it started life as a regular victor its hard to tell he cut it up so much.LOL
The plenum is actually smaller because he lowered it to fit under the stock 2nd gen scoop.

It worked out perfect for me since I wanted to keep the stock 350 hood on my bird.

i like it stealthy.

Thats the main reason I jumped on it when it was forsale was the intake hieght.
It fits really well under the hood but I need to add a spacer now to clear the linkage we'll see if it still makes it after.

Alot of $ in that manifold. One of the first ones converted adn it fits the factory hood scoop on a second gen. Jeff I should of had you measure it up to see how much I chopped off the top.
Jeff why doesnt the linkage work? Hit the hat?

Yes now that the hat has been clocked to the other side for the intercooler Its hitting so i need to raise it up about 1/4 inch.

I am regretting my descision to go intercooler already. What a mess Im having a hard time getting the nose set up so I can pull it on and off easy with it and the piping isnt even in there yet

Thanks for the pics of the carb
Interesting how the angle on those vent ????? affects things


I'm building another blowthrough carb....with a HP body, this time
(I figure they gotta flow a lot better than the milled off regulars)

got the nose remounted after working on it for three days. What a PITA it was trying to make it work properly with all the intercooler tubing.

It works well now though.

Now I need to strap the tubing so it doesnt blow apart.
5/16 bolts thru the pipe with 1 seal, 1 washer, 1 crush nut on the outside to hold it, the strap and then another 5/16 nut should keep it together.LOL


I should have used all steel tubing,LOL

It always takes double to triple the time to do anything. But in the end, it is worth it.

That spacer looks like a quality peice. O ringed on both sides.
