    I am running a Holman/Moody intake on a DESTROKED Ford 300 (272ci) DRAG RACING engine... I was wondering if anyone had some info on this intake??? I had heard it was use in boat racing and some circle track cars, and has anyone else used one before??

  2. Just get ahold of them off their website. Great guys. I have some HM parts and they have always been more than happy to answer questions.

    What a good looking intake. It looks like it would be better than more modern designs.

    If i had to guess i'd say maybe mid 60's vintage for a 240 six maybe in hydroplane racing.

    Had a friend who had one ... on his dirt track car. A 300 Ford. Used 240 rods ( longer than the stock 300 rods ) and 302 Chevrolet V8 pistons. Had trouble with the flywheel ... but he won a LOT of races with it ... even beating a lot of V8's ( 310 cubic inch displacement limit in his class ).

    It worked great past 3,000/3,500 RPMs ... :D

    yeah, had my hands on one awhile back:) super bitchin' looking, but GAWD A'MIGHTY! look at them ports:eek: huge plenum as well. but it's a Holman/Moody for a 6. gotta be a rare bird. one went recently on that site for 200.00 i still woulda run my weber set-up, but it would have been a great piece to have on a closed hood car.

    I used to work with a really awesome guy at Fatmans Named Monte and his dad worked for Holman/Moody back in the 60's and 70's. He would tell me stories about his pops running worked 300's in 64/65 falcons doing road course racing in europe. the best part was their tow rig was a early 60's falcon van with a worked 390 in it :D

    This intake was made for very HIGH RPM more then I turn mine (7300 threw the lights)... So I did some mod's to it to get it to work for me... First I turned the carb sideways, raised the floor up, put a divider in between 3 & 4 runner (to make them longer),and made a cone /\ shaped part to put inside it , that seemed to help the most...
