And please don't say the Marine GM hi-rise. The part number, the look or anything remotely close to it is not legal for our class. The rules are specific! We had run a 1963 Vette intake with a square (Holley, Carter) pattern and an Edelbrock Q-Jet to square bore adapter and our Q-jet carb. We will not be allowed to run any type of adapters next season and are looking for a comparable flowing intake with a Q-jet pattern. Any ideas?

Thanks,

What about the one that comes off of a 327. They have an open plenium (no divider) and need no adapter plate to mount a quadrajet.

q jet ends in numbers 250 thats the best....its a very clean casting and came on some trucks and a lot of mercruiser motors in boats

the intake you ran with a holley bolt pattern is nothing but a little bitty two barrel intake with the holley pattern, total junk...

Now Doug, I thought you knew the best one to run was off a 78 Olds Cutlass Supreme with a 265 V8. :-) Actually, just go to www.castheads.com to find the best to run. Just don't tell anybody where you got it from!

Thanks Rob,
We're trying to make everything 100% legal for next year. I hate running an adapter due to flow loss. When you have one intake in the garage and one carb and they don't match, then you have to use an adapter. I'd like to find a decent and legal high flowing intake with a Q-jet opening. Our engine runs a little sluggish and we'd like to get that part running better. I've worked hard the past 3-4 years figuring handling and I'm pleased with our results. Dave plans on running more of the weekly events next year (maybe 7 or 8?) and it would be nice to take a heavy Monte Carlo and keep up with the Camaros:-) You know of the discussions on that topic.
