What Manifold for 2V Stroker?

G'day all, just wondering if anybody has had any experience in changing from a Weiand X-Cellarator to a Parker Funnelweb or TFC on a 378 2v Cleveland. My engine currently has Closed Chamber 2V, 11.8 comp, Crane 246, Weiand (2 inch spacer), 850 DP Holley. Car is a full body XD with a best of 11.17 at 119.9 mph. Just wondering if changing to another intake would be a easy way to gain some more hp. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

G'Day jososo, welcome to the forum

Great time there! Would be great to see some pics! Need more XD's around here What car setup are you running?

I reckon with the that motor, a longer runner, high rise intake will definitely pick you up some power. There used to be some data on comparison dyno runs with each of these manifolds, but I never managed to get a copy and can't seem to find it on the net.

IMO, the TFC looks like a great piece of kit and if I was in your shoes, I'd definitley swap over to one.

Re: What Manifold for 2V Stroker?

I run the TFC 2V on a 408 Cleveland, but the ports are quite a bit smaller than the weiand, but better manifold in my opinioin.
I run 2V alloy heads and had Dave at AFD port match the manifold to the heads. I was gonna do it, but after seeing the magic he did, i would recomend someone like him doing it.

Damn nice times you run. Is it a full weight XD? If so, you have a freeak of a set up. Must get UNREAL traction/60 foot times.

G'day guys, thanks for the info. I raced at the w'end and ended up coming runner-up at the Ford Nats. Pulled a Red-light in the final by 0.007 of a second. Ouch!!!! Still Happy though! Car is basically full weight except for a fiberglass bonnet. Still not sure about manifolds. Car runs a 4200 stall, C10 and a 4.11 9 inch. I've attached some pics from Saturday. Let us know what you think.

Gee you finally got your car back on the track. I can remember putting your car on my web site years ago. Just click on INDEX.

Yeh, thanks crochunter. I reckon that was about 5 years ago! How time flies. What going on with your car these days? I just had a photo-shoot done on my car on Sunday for an upcoming edition of Xtreme Fords. There's a new one out in a couple of days so hopefully I'll be in the next. Can't Wait! Thanks TruBlu 351 also.

Re: What Manifold for 2V Stroker?

hi jososo, nice launch pics. i really like the parker especially if you have iron 2v heads. you may want to play with spacer height/ carb size. if you move away from the weiand to keep your launch and mid track acceleration as good as it is now. the other manifolds will make more power for you but will lose some of the torque you get fromn the x cellerator.. also, what size pipes and collector do you use? cheers

Re: What Manifold for 2V Stroker?

G'day cjperformance, just put on Ceramic Coated Pacemakers with 2" Primaries and 3 1/2" Collectors. The Collectors were also extended to 14" long. Pacemaker built these custom for me as thats what was on there previously (old ones rusted out under ThermoTec heat wrap). Must thank Magnum Performance in Dandenong for there help with the pipes. Probably these pipes are overkill but it went alright so I didn't want to go to smaller pipes. I'm also running a 2" spacer under the carb that has been 'ported' to match the Manifold with nice smooth curves. I dont know who did it but it but it looks trick!
