Trickflow Tunnel wedge intake
« on: October 21, 2020, 06:51:20 PM »
A guy I am "friends" with on facebook posted some pictures of the TFS tunnel wedge he just received so apparently they are available. Some of you may know him. His name is Charlie Hamilton.

I have emailed Trick Flow about every 3 months for 2 years. Only answer I ever got was "no promise date yet". They have not answered me emails lately. I think I will try again.

They do have an estimated ship date though. Was that there before?
And I can't remember, what was the price on the BBM? Wasn't it around $1200?

From the limited side view from those pics the ports look smaller than the BBM which is more like the stock size. Probably better for a street deal than the big port BBM.

I was trying to find that info this morning. Didn’t find anything concrete.

Just got a reply from Trick Flow.
On backorder, 1st run sold out "very quick".
I was supposed to be on their order list.  WT#

What is the power range of it on a 427 cube FE?   How does it compare to a medium riser below 6000 RPM?

I placed an order for one on Oct. 23rd. At the time it was listed as "not in stock". A few days later I got an email saying it would be shipped out. I was billed for it on Saturday and it's currently in transit and scheduled to be delivered tomorrow, Nov 3rd. Apparently, TFS's "list" doesn't mean much. ??? :-X

For anyone still interested, ports appear to be a conservative MR design. I'd guess it was designed to work with the ports in their heads (they'd be stupid not to make them that way), and it looks like they could work with just about any standard FE head with some port matching. Just a guess, but I'd think they would work very well with their heads, and are aimed more at the street/strip crowd or smaller CI engines.

From what I see there they look pretty good is there anyway that you could pour the intake and see what the total volume is?

At least you have raised that cat well.  It seems interested in FE parts.  :)

She's only 5 months old, but already used to loud cars and guns around my place. First time starting the Mach and the Harley's, they bolted (got 4 kittens). Now, if I just open the door to the Mach, or get on the Harley, they keep a safe distance and watch with fascination..lol She follows me everywhere.
