I second that! Matt's a great guy! I spoke with him on several occasions regarding his U-fab style intakes and he was super easy to deal with.

Also... he's the one who reminded me of the 4-pot situation and not running progressive.

It can be and has been done. As long as there is enough demand to purchase the first 100 or so pieces and enough cash up front to get the ball rolling, there are many small foundaries that might like to have some additional business of this type. Machine shops to finish the work are on every street corner. So who is game ?? Sorry, I hear my retirement calling...I'll help but my cash is in my new shop.

I've seen 6x2 log intakes plummed for extended bell hemi's. I've seen a couple of 2x4 extended bell Edmunds intakes. I've owned a couple of 2x2 Edmunds intakes for them. Here is the one on my '51 hemi...Kind of a bad shot though....

Most early 331 have the thermostat housing built in off of the intake manifold... Industrial and marines may be different... You could rock this intake and then run 1955 heads (front water crossover), and fab up some tubes that go to a thermostat housing....

Just bought a nice Edmunds 2x2 with carbs off Evil-bay a few months ago. Not cheap!!!!!!!!! But, it has the thermostat for use on my 53/54 331.

Here is my 354 w 3/97s. I didn't build it. It does make some power. Maybe I should check the alignment of the ports.

I can see a nice script emblazed on the log....Jeffrey James Speed Parts.....
Correction. "Sugar City Speed" Has a better ring. But yeah, the guy at lakeheaders.com seems like a good solution. That's is if someone does not outbid me on the 3 pot. Damn I really wish I jumped on that Edmunds intake even though these log setups are growing on me.

I think 3x2 on a 354 or 392 is not enough fuel..450CFMs?????? A 4x2 intake makes a big difference, 650CFMs..
Here is a picture of progressive linkage on a 4x2 for a 392 on a Horne intake. I tried to explain it won't run right..Engine was starving for fuel..I made them all work and he was happy..
The other intake, log was tacked by Matt and I finished it up.

Do you think that if or someone else fabbed up a log style intake I would be ahead as far as dollars and efficiency? I mean, this Intake that I am looking at is probably going to hit $1000 no problem.

That is the kind of engine bay that gives me chills. What is that, a Hilbourne setup? Very cool car and the engine barely squeezes in there. And more pics perhaps of the hood sides?

Ha!!! I guess that is what's expected when playing with a Hemi. I just looked at a Weiend 4 pot that just list on ebay for $1800. So with six days left in the auction imagine where that's going to be in a few days. There are a couple on ebay right now all over $1200. I am by no means made of money but I expected around $1500 to go to the intake when saving for the build. If there is a way around it I am going to take it. I lost a Offy 2 x 4 last week for $190. I would have used that but I missed out. It's either dumb luck or pay up. I hope I am not the latter of the two.
