Intake Man. + Carbie

Okay guys things are starting to come along nicely now, got a new job pays well so time to "invest" some more money.

Im looking for the best manifold I can get, money now puts me in the <450 mark but can stretch a tad if needed. Its for a 351C with 302cc heads.
And a kickarse carbie to match, whats better mechanical secondaries or mechanical?

approx prices and some names would be wonderfull, this is short term research, wanna purchase these next weekend if I can get the info in time.

cheers,
Mik.

A weiand Xcellerator/big hyd or small solid cam should get you where you want to be. You'll need nothing less than a 750cfm carby DP's easier to deal with.

Vac tank makes the brakes work better when running a decent sized cam. I have no issues with my brakes.

Re: Intake Man. + Carbie

I would use the Parker Funnelweb, this webpage tests it against the Weiand:

The CHI is as good as the Funnelweb, so i hear :

And depending on your cam/headwork, a 750 dp should be fine.

Re: Intake Man. + Carbie

Depends on whether Mik Gan wants to be underbonnet or not?

Out of bonnet
-------------
Funnel web
CHI

Under bonnet
-------------
Weiand Xcellerator

Under bonnets good but out of the bonnet looks better and develops more torque generally

Re: Intake Man. + Carbie

I've gone the other way. I am sticking to the under bonnet option. The aim is to make strong power with the lower manifold. Ive got a 2v weiand, and they can work really good with the correct set up. I should have mine on the road sunday. The new C4 is all fitted up with just a couple of things to go. When i sort it a bit, i will dyno it and see how the weiand goes.

Re: Intake Man. + Carbie

I am also keeping mine under the bonnet, with an Holley Strip Dominator (4v).
This is it here with n2O rails in place, all fits under nicely.

Re: Intake Man. + Carbie

choice of air cleaner has as much to do with under bonnet clearance from what I have seen.
There are plent of Funnelweb equipped clevos that are all underbonnet. Have a look at the next all ford day
