I just bought a intake manifold off of ebay that is supposed to be a high rise marine intake manifold. The number that the individual stated that was on the manifold is #1406242 - Dilema is that I cannot find any numbers that match this # on the Mortec site or anywhere else! It definitely is a high rise manifold when looking at the pictures of it. Perhaps he didn't read the numbers off of the manifold correctly! Also, does the vortec heads require a different set of gaskets than a regular stock sbc set of gaskets? Thanks in advance!

Try casting number 14096242. It's the old standard bowtie-marine.

FWIW, It uses the old style intake bolt pattern and won't bolt up to your vortecs without redrilling/tapping the heads.
