    Sheet Metal intakes

    Ive got a New 632 BBC running with Ported Brodix BB3 Xtra-O heads. It has an Enderle Methanol Bird catcher and Edelcbrock Victor 2R Ported Tunnel ram.

    If i change the intake to a sheet metal type (Hogans etc) and keep the Enderle Hat. Will i make more HP and Tourqe????

    You may see some but I think ultimately the head you have is too small for the cubic inch. We are running that head on a 582. My buddy is running Dart Pro II which I believe are 380s on a 632 with the hat injection. He feels he is leaving a little on the table with that head as well. Are you trying to stay conventional headed?

    That is some serious work. What did you do to open the head up that much?

    x2 At what lift are you gettting the 480? A CNC ported 365 only flows 460 at .900 lift.

    IMHO, not worth the cost...........Stick with a good cast intake that's been properly ported and port matched.
