Low-Cost, High-Performance Intake
It used to be that a fabricated intake manifold for a small-block Chevy was an expensive, race-only item. Summit Racing has changed all that with their new tunnel-ram–style fabricated intakes. The aluminum intakes are welded and CNC-machined and feature an individual runner design that helps produce big power in the 1,800-7,000 rpm range. These intake manifolds are 7-inches tall, fit stock-style cylinder heads, accept most square-bore four-barrel carburetors, and have a silver anodized finish. You even have a choice of single- or dual-quad plenums. Go to summitracing.com or call them direct at 800.230.3030.
