I was just thinking, would a redline intake manifold for say a 2 or 4 barrel Holley fit on a 2v head out of an XY or XA? These manifolds would have to be better than the original 2v manifold. Would the ports all match up?
Good to see i'm not the only one who's been wondering if the crossflow manifolds would fit. The triple webber or 4 barrel one look's like it would make the old six go. What have you done to your XA 2V motor?

1986 XF Spac Sedan, EFI, T5, lowered, with a few more mods to come.
I no Redline dont make one for the 2v's. I was thinking using a crossflow one, the manifold would sit on the other side of the head but would the ports match up?
I dont understand what your trying to do when you say the manifold would be on the other side of the head?.
And there aint nothing wrong with the original manifold that come's with the 2V head,the port's are huge.

I dont have the 2v head yet, im still looking around but first im lowering the XA. I was just gona bolt on a 350 Holley, port & polished 2v head with oversized valves, Crow cam and extractors exhaust (which ive alreday got and it sounds great) I understand im going to have to get new extractors when i get the 2v head. When im saying the maniflod would be on the other side of the head its because its not crossflow, as with the crossflow the intake is on the others side, correct me if im wrong because im only going from memory i got rid of the crossflow XF. When i get a 2v head i think ill get a intake maniflod of a crossflow and c if the ports match up. Imagine a tripled webered 250 2v! :)
I think there was a triple Weber manifold for the 2v head. I'd have to check an old Street Machine Hot 6's mag at my parents place though. Doesn't really help though as you'd still have to find one if they do exist, and they'd have to be only slightly more plentiful than hen's teeth!
I take it you don't want a crossflow head in the XA...
