You'll want a single plane (open plenum) manifold, or if thats not possible you can use a dual plane manifold with a lowered and knife edged centre divider.

Thanks for the reply. Won't the single plane kill off some low end torque??

Yeah it will.Single plane manifolds are not well suited to towing.You want low end torque,call craig bennet at torque power manifolds and ask him about his high rise dual plane inlet for the clevo.

Thanks,
Dual plane "gap" if you know what that is allows a slightly cooler charge

Re: Best intake for LPG and towing

I'm also building a torque focussed 351c that will be used for some towing.

I got an edelbrock air-gap performer from flatlander racing (www.flatlanderracing.cm) for $270 US.

We postage etc, that amounted to $500 AUS on my door.

Re: Best intake for LPG and towing

Re: Best intake for LPG and towing

Be aware, they're fairly tall and you may have bonnet clearance issues with the air-gap, particularly if you throw a throttle body, mixer and filter on top (such as an impco or ohg set up)
This type of set-up on an air-gap was going to cause me clearance issues in an XC ute

I'm going gas research, which has gas carbies horizontally mounted on an intake adapter, which then mounts to the manifold (air-gap). I'm hopeful of squeezing this under the hood.

Re: Best intake for LPG and towing

Thanks for the tip. It's going in an 82 FJ40 Landcruiser. There should be heaps of room underneath. (though having said that I will measure tomorrow ).
