most of the stock hi rises stuff came on marine applications so might want to check that route

I don't have the part number with me, but you can buy them brand new from the Chey Dealer.
If memory serves me right I believe $219.
They accept both spread and square bore 4 barrel carbs.
They are really heavy, but are made to wind up the rpm's.
At the swap meet's they were about $150/$175.

Cast iron Bowtie intake, less than 2 bills at most local Chevy dealerships. Really good low to midrange, still good to 7000 rpm's. And they are heavy.

have built motors with over 550HP with the marine intake, the trick is to weld the tops of the ports and raise the ports, mostly for dart heads and such, bought my bowtie marine intake at a chevy dealership for 180

Heres an online source for high rise cast iron intake. $183 brand new.
http://www.paceparts.com/product.asp?0=243&1=248&3=1113

Also, if you run vortech heads the cast iron manifold for it is part # 14097499.

I have to run that one since we can't run high rises at my track.
