Question Intake Manifold

What 4 barrel intake manifold fit the best on the CAVs?
I'll be using a Ford 289 with a Getrag 016 trans.
Thanks
Rich

Cool Re: Intake Manifold

Hi Rich,

I'd lean towards a low rise dual plane intake in that combination. Lots of bottom end torque, good clearance to the glass as well.

The engine sits higher in the car (any brand GT40) when setup with the Getrag transmision as the input shaft goes in above the diff rather than below as in the ZF application.

Cheers

Re: Intake Manifold

Canuk40,
Would the Edelbrock RPM intake manifold be to high?
