Port matching TF Track Heat manifold to FE Power LLC adapter
« on: April 13, 2018, 09:18:57 PM »
I have started port matching my Trick Flow Track Heat manifold to my adapter. I also opened up and smoothed the runner transition some...but not too smooth!

Nice!

Could use some tipside pics. Is the Trick Flow Track Heat intake from a 351C application? I wonder how big (width/height) the runners are nearer the plenum base.

L-o-n-g ago now here on Jay's site, before he started on the adaptor path, we had all discussed two other intake schemes: one was the two piece, bolt together single plane intakes (Chevy...but) that allow almost unlimited porting options, easy ones at that.

The other was the then pretty new addition of plastic racing intakes for weight loss, cooling properties an more. Have to admit I have not heard much about these intakes in some years now but it's a viable idea for the adaptor.

Yes it is a 351C intake.  I have seen some two piece Cleveland intakes on Ebay. They are for the Aussie 3V port configuration but I guess they can be modified to fit. They are Speedmaster units and pretty rough looking. This is what I started with:
