How many times are you gonna ask this question here ...? Till you get the answer you hope to get ...?

I think you should buy the TM Enterprises intake manifold from Charlie; NAH, bever mind, to expensive.

I am sure you are a very knowledgeable guy. But you're not really a people person are you. I like to ask questions and get answers and opinions from different people. Hopefully learn things in the process. If you talk to your customers like you post these smart a.. comets it's a wonder that you still have any customers.

Gary,
The intake choice for a particular application is always a trade off, kinda depends on what you are going to or try to do with a given engine.
With that being said, the heads you have (SCJA) & they "flow" in the 350-380 cfm range lets say, you are gonna be turning the engine max 6500 rpm...
the Victor would not be a bad choice if you are wanting a single plane intake.
With the cam you said you are thinking about going with this would be the most economical thing to do.
you could gasket match the intake, but it is not entirly necessary... clean up any "buggers" (casting flash) with a sanding roll you should be good for what you may be trying to do...

I have run this similar set up although it was on a 514 cid & had very good results with it.
hope this helps
Terry

My good customers actually LISTEN to people who know, whether it is somebody else or somewhere else or not. I have watched you simply disregard good answers from others on here simply because you probably didn't want to hear what they were saying; sometimes trivializing their answer as if you weren't being told the truth.
YES ... I am VERY sarcastic with people who feel ENTITLED to take-up others time asking the same question two or three times simply because they feel the answers weren't complete enough to suit them and they are really to lazy to do any searching where the SAME questions have been asked many, MANY times before.

If the shoe fits ... it probably is Cinderella.

From what I have read from Randy, he earned it. Sometimes it is hard to be a people person, especially when you deal with a high volume of customers.

You're probably right, as far as you go.  I never said anything about him or anybody else as a "person".  Only about the perception as questions appear on here. Until I get seriously attacked personally.

I answer anybody's question's , even the most novice of things.  It is irritating to see answers, (not just mine but, other earnest answers as well), treated with almost total disregard. It apparently irritates some other people to be the brunt of deserved sarcasm.

Oh Well ...

Did'nt see where you "said" anything about anyone Randy, just an obsevation thats all....
this is what the site is for really, I know I have learned alot from guys on here.
nobody deserves sarcasm if they truly are trying to learn.
Maybe I missed it but if the guy "disregarded" an answer from you or from anyone else you should'nt get irritated with him, man your too good for that.

If I am not mistaken Mr. Randy may have been in the Motor City when this stuff was rolling off the assemably line. That carries alot of weight with me and some other folks also. I learned to listen also when I first came here, after a little spat,  Smile so it's all good.

If free information from a proven, professional engine builder isn't good enough, we can always always go to a shop and pay for said info. Lots of good minds here that give their time and knowledge to help us out. Read a lot, post a little, and learn all you can. Most questions can be answered with the search function. If we don't find, or like the answer we get, there's always trial and error at our own expense......

Randy you have a lot of the guys Respect, I go to a lot of Boards and read and every board I go to the same guy has the same question ask on all 20+ boards, the same answers come up and they keep asking till they get the answer they want to hear, so what should be done is ask him what Intake he wants to use? and tell him yep that's the best.... have a nice day.

I also have started an new thing if The SOB has the question on more than 1 board F$@k him won't answer he is just fishing for the answer he wants....

We have enough Post WHORES that answer every question be it right or wrong...

Have a nice day

One can also be a bit more diplomatic too. Being sandpaper all of the time gets a bit old. Guess who I will not be purchasing a custom cam from?

Randy maybe a little gruff but in person he is a very likeable guy, just think of it like this you go fishing and cast 100 times to catch 1 little fish? does it stop you? probably not. you can't hold it against Randy for this he is one of the most knowledgeable persons on here, just when he answers a question and the ask if 10 more times and just change a word or two and ask it again, I could see where someone would get annoyed and frustrated with the asker of such questions....I know I sat across from Randy and a many others on here and listened and the information was mind boggling....

New users to the forum (or new to building(paying for) a performance BBF) typically post questions on forums like this to get answers - or a general consensus.
How is He (or she) supposed to know that Randy is the last answer when it comes to the BBF? I have no doubt Randy has a wealth of knowledge (that I will never attain) in the BBF or FE building. There are also many others with a great deal of knowledge and experience here too. I am also sure that there are different opinions on what works and what does not between the professional builders.
Ask 3 cam designers for a custom cam and you will get 3 different answers - which one is right?

I like hearing answers from a cross section of BBF experienced racers and engine builders. We all love BBF's (I think).
