havent heard anything but they should consider it.

a weind stealth is the cheapest out there, thats a dual plane, but they dont make a vortec intake.

I've heard the same rumor. I can't imagine how they can do a "spec" intake. Too many variations. What about the Ford guys?

How about any aluminum intake, NO PORT work allowed?

Yeah, but you gotta put yourself in IMCA's shoes. What would they be trying to "fix" with an aluminium intake rule? Probably the very expensive reworked cast-iron intakes. I've heard of $500 ones from PTM in Boone.

You either fix that problem with a spec intake with IMCA cast in the runner (like the spec head for the SportMod). Or you go with a NO-PORTWORK rule. IMO.

If they go to a any alum no porting, you would be spending around 400 for a good 2 barrel intake.

I dont know why they ever allowed porting of anything, it just takes more time.

But Im not a IMCA fan, everything about IMCA stinks. But they are the dominant rules body around here.

Weiand is a Holley company, and we all know the relationship between IMCA and Holley...

Single plane tho? That'll kill some more torque out of the motor. If that's the case, I hope it's an "optional" thing so I can stick to my dual-plane cast-iron...
