If your rules allow I'd run a Bowtie highrise. I believe they are the best stock intake.

the bowtie "MARINE" hirise was available from gm dealers, but it never came on a production application. we can only use oem production cast iron intakes. thanks, neil

Right, the "marine" intake never came on a production car, but its aluminum brother did come on the 69' (I belive it was) Camaro. I ran the "marine" intake on my stock car and it done great!! My rules were the same, but no one ever said anything about it. Guess I was lucky. But if you want to read between the lines, LOL !! It is oem production on the 69 Camaro, just cast iron. So between the lines its "oem production cast iron" Heh heh heh
