Boss 302 Intake Manifold

Hi guys,

im building a 1968 windsor with cleveland 2v closed chamber heads. Does anyone know of a suitable intake manifold for it that is produced currently?

I've heard of B&A street and track boss but apparently they no longer exist.

I'm pretty sure Parker's in qld do a boss manifold (2V), find 'em in parts peddler.
He's a friendly bloke to talk to and will point you in the right direction anyway.
Also Killkenny Castings in SA used to make one, but they were a pretty mad tunnel ram looking manifold I've been told.
Edelbrock make one too.

ah yes its the killkenny thats the dodgy single plain one.

The one ive got is a proper dual plane.Alloy also. seriously tho mate, nobody has been able to make one as good as the originals from the boss 302s in 69.

I have a cross boss manifold and yes like the next post under yours it is a monster to look at. You may have problems trying to keep it all under the bonnet once you put on a carb. I know i would on the fairlane.

Re: Boss 302 Intake Manifold

Kilkenny is the same as the TPP Pro-Boss. Edelbrock make twin tunnel ram but for 4v heads. B&A no longer make Street and Track Boss. Parker makes em round $700. There's a EFI setup with 8 throttle bodies or 4 IDF Webers floating round.
Good luck.

Do you meen track boss or cross boss. Because if that is a cross boss (original) then that would be a cross ram with a removable top plate cast for an inline autolite carburetor. If thats the case do you have a matching carby and damn that would be one expensive bit of kit to have lying around.

I have an original, and yes it is the one with the wrong spelling. They are a far better manifold than ANY immitation. it is a 4V dual plane all alloy manifold.
