the manifold is sold. still have the exhaust and balancer for you l-79 fans
C4B or C3Bx, both nice manifolds. I have a couple. I think they came in either left or right fill tubes
Got the intake from Racer-X Thanks for the info guys........
In terms of performance the best by a noticeable amount for me was the Offenhauser Port O Sonic. Hard to find now. I finally found one for a 327 I am putting together . Great manifolds. Everyone has their favorites. I don't think you could go wrong with the Factory aluminum , they have good torque.
You know the best engineers of the time designed them; considering the aftermarket stood on the shoulders of GM's guys for years, cutting and dicing those intakes to keep the fires burning on the dragstrips clear through the late 60's.
These ^^^^^ and their cast iron brothers are exceptional intakes on a 327. Of course I have a real soft spot for L79 parts so maybe I am not a good barometer.
I have found three of those at swap meets in the last three years. I have bought them all. The first one I run on my 57 wagon, it does not have the part number "WCSVQ" or whatever under the Say-why-and. Earlier production? Extremely pleased with that intake, thus the buying two more.
I would recommend going with a "closed-PCV" system, as opposed to an "open-PCV" system to keep your engine bay cleaner..
