G, send me a Rhino Picture
Tod, do you think Barry would mind if i Used that picture? How is that build coming along? Do you have a favourite photo I could use on my site?
Falcon67 & Blizz! Kids and the Internet:-)
Brett, talk one of your customers into a heathly engine build using my heads! Guaranteed to help your business..lol

We tested the previous version of Scott's intake manifold on my
408C with A3 Ford Motorsport heads. The A3 heads have an intake
port that is similar to a 4V with Roush port stuffer (both the
floor and roof are raised but the floor is raised more). My 408C
is a hydraulic roller cammed street engine and made 569 HP with
Scott's intake beating the matching A331 Ford Motorsport single
plane intake (sort of a raised port version of the Edelbrock Torker)
in both peak torque and peak power. Impressive for an intake that
looks like a stocker.

In our testing, the unmodified (out-of-the-box) Blue Thunder dual
plane has been disappointing. In one test on a mild (5500 RPM peak)
408C with 4V heads, the Strip Dominator made 45 HP more than the
Blue Thunder. Testing the intake on a flow bench (bolted to a cylinder
head) revealed 4 good runners and 4 bad runners. However, when modified
to correct this flow imbalance (blending the plenum and lowering the
divider to bring the bad runner flow up to match the good runners),
the Blue Thunder was a match for the Strip Dominator on peak power.
of the modifications done to the BT intake? I have one on a 9.5:1 408C street engine. I blended the transition to the top runners from the carb pad and blended the notch but didn't enlarge the notch any. It made good power but if there is more there I'd like to get it. Thanks, Chuck
Sorry I don't have photos. Dave McLain did the development work
on his flow bench. We've got several of them on street Panteras and
there owners love the modified intakes. If you look at an Edelbrock
Performer RPM Air Gap for 351C-2V heads, you'll see similar lowered
