I dont understand what your trying to do when you say the manifold would be on the other side of the head?.XA Fairmont said:I no Redline dont make one for the 2v's. I was thinking using a crossflow one, the manifold would sit on the other side of the head but would the ports match up?
Have you ever seen the port's and valve's on a 2V head,all they need is a good clean up, they are allready HUGE.XA Fairmont said:I dont have the 2v head yet, im still looking around but first im lowering the XA. I was just gona bolt on a 350 Holley, port & polished 2v head with oversized valves, Crow cam and extractors exhaust (which ive alreday got and it sounds great) I understand im going to have to get new extractors when i get the 2v head. When im saying the maniflod would be on the other side of the head its because its not crossflow, as with the crossflow the intake is on the others side, correct me if im wrong because im only going from memory i got rid of the crossflow XF. When i get a 2v head i think ill get a intake maniflod of a crossflow and c if the ports match up. Imagine a tripled webered 250 2v!
I'd stay clear of the Holley,IMO,your better of with either the original 2brl stromy or a webber if you can, the holley's are too tempramentle and a prick to set up,but if you do decide to go the Holley you wouldn't want to go any bigger than 350,now the extractor's seem the same to me, some say that the middle of the extractor's where the two(pipe's) are together it is different but I have Perry extractor's on my 221 and I also have the extractor's of a 2V head and they seem the same to me, Identical,HSV.ETA said:I have a 2V head ready to go onto my bored out 221 in my XP. It has the standard manifold and two barrel carb. Should I get the standard 2 barrel rebuilt or can I fit a larger holley in its place (if so what size, 350 or there a better option)? Antoher quick question, are extractors for a normal pre crossflow head different to the 2V or can the same be used for both?
