Default TBI to carb

Looks great Skull. Nice clean intake without all the annoying vacuum stuff. I'm gonna try this mod sometime.

Red face ugly

ugly looking thing

should be effective though l used 4 gaskets to make it work, hard to cut the carb gaskets to clear the adapter/spacer. the cut outs are a little rough and the carb is really up in the air, sort of a mini-ram.

when the intake bolted on to the motor and going down the road l will let everbody knows how it runs.

l figure a curb weight of around 23OO pounds, about 28O hp and 32O fpt it should still haul
butt 0K.

13 1/2 inches from the bottom of the intake to the top of the air cleaner and l don't even have the nut that holds down the air cleaner or stud included.

Default Cool build Skull....

As for the tank, maybe a few gallons of CLR might clean it out...?? Just a thought....Nice job on the intake.... never would have thought to adapt it onto a TBI intake... very clever.... should work out I'd guess...

sgt 'Nice job on the intake, never would have thought to adapt it onto a TBI intake, should work out I'd guess..."

thanks sarge,

l showed it to my expert carb guy today and he say's since it is a 2 barrel intake the fuel may not atomize great and give it a bottom end off the line bog.

even with a little bog the 454 will blast "THAT" around just fine

Skull, I like your 'hot-rodded intake'. Here's a picture of my 'hot-rodded intake, for a Poly 318. [the red one]
We all are snowed under with coffee-shop wisdom when were building something, like you having to worry about a bog in a 454. You already have 200 too much horsepower, to drive around with, and someone is advising you to do all kinds of things at great expense to yourself, to get 3 more horsepower. You are taking the right approach, saying "I think I'll get by" with a 454.

Default poly

l had one of those poly wide block 318's in a truck and that thing ran forever, ran it 7 years, towing car trailers and several 2OO mile road trips before the whole front-end was so wore out it was not rebuildable and not worth (in the 198O's) the time or effort. after l sold to the local wrecking yard they used her as a yard truck for about 5 more years till they closed and now a mini-mall is on the site, what a waste of a good wrecking yard.
