Inlet manifolds?

I currently run a Wieand Xcellerator on my AFD 2v alloy headed 351 XD.

There is no room to run even a 1" spacer under the carby with K & N Extreme filter only clearing the stock bonnet by 1/4".

I will shortly be replacing the Pacy tri y's with Pacy 1 & 3/4" 4 into 1's which run into the full twin 2 & 1/2" mandrel bent system. Cam is Comp Cams solid 248/248 @ 50 with 605/605 lift and 110 lobe sep.

As I have a couple of spare bonnets that I can hack a hole into and run a scoop, what options do I have for better performance inlet manifold and what sort of benefit could I expect from whatever you recommend?


The cop said "Do you know why I pulled you over". I said " Well, that all depends on how long you have been following me!"

Some passes at the creek where there is rubber down for traction would be good for more than 1/2 sec instead of trying to launch on dusty breakdown lanes and laying 100 metres of rubber would be a better idea

Get back over to the FPV Tickford threads you stirrer

Re: Inlet manifolds?

Bolt on a TFC manifold. I've seen one on an AFD headed car and it went well. Definately an out of the bonnet job though.

The weiand likes a 1" spacer. My guess is the runners are too short but I've head people say the runners are too long??

Who/what does TFC stand for? Do they have a web site?

What is the website for that Melb mob (out in the suburbs) where they actually show the retail prices for what they sell?

Its both actually!!!

The runners for 2,3,6 and 7 are too short, which means the runners for 1,4,5 and 8 are too long in comparison.

The funnelweb fixed that issue, thats the manifold i'd be after if I was upgrading from an xcellerator.

Just like a Tsunami.
