Blake's ported Victor works pretty well ... but, it has been modified considerably.

Blake would probably want at least 1k to do one for someone else. Not realistic. Great intake. Maybe we can talk Edelbrock into duplicating that one.

What about the new "CJ Air Boss" that is being made?

Isn't this the kind of intake y'all are asking about? He's selling them for $599.

I saw this on the Facebook group "Big Block Ford Power" and I believe it's being made by Robert Ed Mclemore out of Oregon.

It looks real similar to the intake manifold for the Boss Hemi made by Todd Miller of TM Enterprises.

If I thought they would, I would send it............... If you make the contact and get a favorable response I will do it.

I would change some things about it if I were starting from a new sheet of paper. I just did mine to test an idea.

I would lengthen the four center runners and stand all eight up straighter and equalize the lengths to the rpm needed.

Then our smaller inch engines could run on up to 8000 rpm and make power the bigger heads afford.

I'll use J.Y. Kell's 562" P51 engine as an example....it's been four years since it was done and a few things have changed but , I feel it is a valid example.

There was 17 more HP at the two manifold's peak power rpm in favor of the 'mafia' thing. The fully ported victor manifolds [w/o welding etc.] seem to hit a rpm number and immediately fall off.

Randy's engine with the 'mafia':
950.6 HP @ 6,700 rpm
950.6 HP @ 6,800 rpm
951.3 HP @ 6,900 rpm
950.7 HP @ 7,000 rpm

That's .7 Hp from 6,700 rpm to 7,000 rpm...seems the engine is hanging on to it's power.



I have two regrets....
1] The engine was not pulled to 7,200 rpm with the 'mafia thing'.
2] I did not get a copy of the dyno sheet for the best pull with the ported Victor.

Bottom line is that @ 7,000 rpm the ported victor had went back to the house and was down a lot more than 17 hp.


Lem do you have any feed back regards to what the 17 HP is worth ET wise vs the Victor.

I agree it is application driven.

I really didn't want to run a tunnel ram and never gave it a thought . scratch study

I was really more intertained in running a good intake and a single carb for high rpm deal .

I guess the tunnel ram may be an option . Thanks

Gary, 17 HP is 17 HP,  who knows what E.T. difference it would make..............  In perfect back to back  runs it is what it is.

The deal is that, It makes more power in every test I have seen done, some more some maybe 2 hp less on engines that can test the boundary of the intakes. This isn't peak number either, it's across the usable rpm range.

Lem is just showing one more thing that adds HP to the engine we all love.  Not sales, not horn blowing, just concrete facts.

The Mafia generally peaks about 300 rpm higher than a Victor and brings that hp with it. It moves the tq peak up by that much too.

2x1050-1150 will lay waste to the 2x750 deal. And it won't just be at the peak.
