    Picking a new intake for 454 BBC

    I'm doing some work to my 454 BBC just bought a set of good oval port heads and a new cam. I'm trying to figure out what type of intake to run. I've talked to some people and they say victor jr, is this a god intake?

    I thought a 454-R or a 454-O was a "Victor Junior" ? if so You can buy a Victor Junior with a Dominator flange or 4150 flange... :?

    edit:
    I just looked at mine...it is a 454-R and it says "Victor Jr." on it and 454-R....The 454-R is available with a 4500 flange or the 4150 Flange. It is a great intake in my opinion. I have had two of them.

    p.s. 454-O is the same exact intake as 454-R just has oval ports rather than rect. The meat is there if you wanted to open it up later on...I had a 454-O with my old motor and rather than port it I sold it and bought the 454-R

    i run a 454-r..but i did run a team "g"..the newer team "g"s are better then the older ones...but if i had to buy one i would go with the 454-r.

    if you want a worked team "g" dominater flange...i have one you can buy cheap...just pm me..

    oh yeah my motor ( 511 ci) ran a 5.99 at 114mph @ 3,000 lbs with this team "g'.....don't know what the 454-r will pick it up ( on gas with same carb) but will find out soon.

    manifold

    You are correct, the 454-r and 454-o are the same dominator intake with different ports. These are listed as Victors in the catalog. The only oval port Victor Jr. listed is with a 4150 carburetor. May be they more than is listed or things may have changed since Your intake was made. Man, this is confusing. :shock:

    Yep..you are right...My 4150 flanged one has "Victor Jr." embossed on it..but I just saw a 454-R with a Dominator flange on ebay and it only says "Victor"
