Intake ?'s with Blue Thunder heads

Post  schmiddy on April 3rd 2011, 12:45 pm


I have a set of aluminum Blue Thunder heads with the Chevy exhaust ports. I'm rebuilding the engine right now for my boat and want to replace the dual plane low rise with a high rise single plane. Will a normal CJ intake fit the heads or do I need to buy a Blue Thunder specific intake?

Any suggestions or recommended products for my application would be hugely appreciated.

Thanks

Guys,

Buy the new TFS Mafia single plane (4500 Dommy style) from Lem. It's the best manifold out there for those heads.

What's the difference between the

TFS-53400112 & the TFS-53400111?

Just the carbureter?

They are completely different manifolds; especially inside.
To simplify it, One is for CJ sized intake ports and has a Dominator carb flange and the other is for regular size production intake ports with a 4150 carb flange.

Depends on the Hp and RPM levels.........some appliations would be better served with a Torker II .

Will a Weiand tunnel ram fit these heads? I have a set of BT's here that I'm thinking about putting on my 532. Would like to retain my intake if at all possible.

As long as that tunnel ram is for a wedge and not meant for the BOSS engine, it will fit.
