What are some good cast iron 351w intake manifolds availiable from the junkyard, 4 barrel or 2 barrel. Also, are there any aftermarket cast iron intakes for this engine that might pass tech without a double-take.

Ford made some in the sixties, can't remember the casting numbers. I was told to find an seventies marine intake, they are better than passenger car intakes.

Yeah just use an early cast intake manifold. but the trick to make one work is you need to put a 1/2 inch hole through the divider right under the carb it helps a bunch we have done it alot on our hobby stock and Had alot of good results!
