Question 302 Intake Manifolds

Yeah I know we've seen some comparos of intake manifolds, but which one is the best and available in Oz pronto? To suit RHD XR8 application too!

I saw a pretty trick unit on Rob Herrod's project car, but it looked like a more truck like unit with very long runners.

I must say, the Edelbrock stuff looks pretty good.

That is correct! The Edelbrock stuff would have my money (if I was in the market), however having said that I would revise this choice to the new Tickford unit, I just LOVE those intake trumpets!! :thumbup:

There is a cutaway version of the whole 5.6 engine at the motor show, I'm sure someone here has a good shot of the cutaway upper intake? It really shows the trumpets nicely.. I JUST WANT ONE!! :D

Pete,

I was going to get a GT40 upper and lower for mine, but was advised the Edelbrock stuff is way better...

The Tickford unit. Unbelievable - sort of what you'd see on VL-VN Group A Commodores.
