Re: 360 Intake?
wsmiller, if that stock intake is for a 4 barrel Motorcraft spreadbore carb like the one sitting in my basement, here`s a few things I found out about them. The Motorcraft spreadbore uses the standard Motorcraft/Holley bolt pattern, so a Holley 4 barrel will work on one of these I think, how good it would work I don`t know. The throttle bore size and spacing is similar in appearance to a Qjet or Thermoquad, but only in appearance. The Qjet or Thermoquad will not bolt directly to one of these intakes. I`ve been told by Parts Mike and others the Motorcraft spreadbore carb is a pretty crappy carb, especially off-road, and is hard to get tuned. I did install a Qjet on the intake I have but I had to make an adapter plate using a Qjet to Holley carb adapter. I don`t have it installed yet but am planning on finding out how good this is going to work in the next few weeks.
