Does such a piece exsist? Or am I stuck with using the brizinski one for best performance?

Nope,if you have a brezinski type with the holley carb mount you have the best.

I would'nt call 'em hi-rise, tho. Pretty lame intakes. But better than mismatching an older non-vortec intake to such sweet heads.

That was my point too Tilley, I'll stick with the brezinski if I cant find a "matched" vortech high rise. I think they make an aluminum version but no cast iron. Oh well.

I have what your looking for. It is cast and it is a highrise. Its a marine intake, bolts right on vortek heads and has huge runners.
casting # 14098242

Sounds like a Bowtie intake made for older style heads.

no it hasn't been redrilled foe vortec. Was redrilled to fit old style. And the casting # isn't the part #. I will check today with the guy I gOt it from. His up on all this marine stuff seeing he works on boats every day.

Just found out we have to use an older intake and modify it to bolt on to the vortech's if we plan to run them. We can use the older z-28 highrise intakes but cant use the newer gm bowtie version of the z-28's.

I'm not sure if it would be better to run vortechs with a modified intake over a stock set of 1.94/1.50's with the same intake.

Any help here?

The only problem is that the older Z-28 hi rise intakes were all aluminum. All of the cast iron versions were over the counter and thus not legal from what I have been told.

Straight from JD, I can use the cast iron z-28. It just cant have a bowtie on it. Not sure if the ones sold on the net fit that discription or not. I'm more afraid of it matching up right then anything else. Plus with the carb changes getting everything to work right will be a challenge.

Well the reason I ask is that from what he told me, if it didn't come on a car, we can't run it. I didn't know that came on a car?

The rule I am most upset about is the carb rule. We ran so much cooler last year with the 4412. I don't get the quadrajet and probably never will.

I know that we will not be running vortec since you have to run an old intake to do it. If you look at how the ports match up, you will see why.

the cast iron intake has a bowtie on the back, and never came on a car.

my track went thru this about 6 years ago.
