Yeah, I totally understand that now!! I had never seen one before. I’ve been out of the hobby for a long time, and I’m just now getting my toes wet again. This website is a great tool and I knew someone would know exactly what it is haha. Thanks again!I installed 1 years ago on a 331 with AFR 165's and XE264 cam for a guy. He was NOT happy ended up changing the intake to a older edelbrock rpm and was night and day difference. Theres a reason they arent made anymore lol
Yeah, the more I look at it and what you’re saying, that makes a lot of sense. Just have to wonder why BBK, or any other manufacturer for that matter, didn’t go with that plan. Maybe it underperformed so badly and they just didn’t sell enough of them to justify putting anymore R&D into the design.For some reason I think it would have been way more effective if there was a throttle body on each side. If we think about air as particles, they would fill one plenum side entirely before crossing through that middle bridge and filling the other side entirely. Which would probably mean four out of eight cylinders would be lean until that air gets really moving. That's were the dual throttle body idea stems from. If there were a TB on each side, the airflow would be alot more even. This intake manifold looks a lot like the performance intake manifolds for the Infiniti/Nissan VQ37 3.7 V6 platform. Which leads me to think, are there any effective "cross-ram" style intake manifolds available in the aftermarket for any V8 (not only the 5.0L Windsor)?
