    I've had a 354 HEMI stored under a pile of shipping blankets for years. Some day it will get rebuilt and the four bolt commercial exhaust manifolds will get bolted on. Finding an intake manifold is on the to do list, and who knows maybe one will turn up at Hershey. Short of walking around with an intake gasket what are the quick ID features on a 354-392 manifold? Thanks. Bob

    Here's a 354 for reference. The 392 has a rectangular exhaust crossover instead of square. It will work if you use 392 gaskets.
    The round water jackets is a good indicator. 20180923_134210.jpeg 20180923_134036.jpeg

    No, something in aluminum, and selling for less digests than my phone number. The round water jacket covers are a good tip, thanks. Bob

    354 and 392 have a separate water manifold from the fronts of the heads. The other Chryslers have the water outlet in the intake manifold.

    Thanks! I've got that stock crossover. Might as well post a photo of what I have. Bob

    Slant Six plug wires with the rubber flanges that seal the plug tubes work great on those old Chizlers.

    New ones aren't very expensive. My weiand dual quad was 250 new

    I'm running a Hot Heads high rise 4bbl intake with a Holley 670 Avenger. Great throttle response and over 25k on the combination so far.
     
  10. What InstantT said....they didn't make a stock factory one in aluminum that I re-call or have numbers for....

    I'd like to find something that would be correct on a 1962 era build. A Cunningham HEMI manifold would be really special. Bob

    1955 331" engines began the water ports in the front/rear of the heads....that continued with 354 & 392. The 'crossover' is integral with the water pump housing.

    The 331" from 1951 thru 1954 have the water outlet in the intake manifold. These comments refer to passenger car engines....trucks 'may' have had some variation...not sure about them.

    Put "Hemi Tech Index" in search & start reading.
