We’re not sure we have ever seen a Pontiac engine that NEEDED this much induction or carburetor on top of it, especially naturally aspirated but this is one bad ass looking intake manifold. We have never seen this particular Edelbrock pice that dates back to the early/middle 1960s and frankly, after battling to tune it for most of your life, it would likely look awesome on top of your hot rodded Pontiac.
This is a more refined version of an earlier log type intake manifold that Edelbrock had also sold. That one was a pair of separate logs that each held three carbs and were actually joined together in the center with lengths of rubber hose. This intake speaks to the advances the company was making in casting technology and manufacturing as creating this piece was far more difficult and complex than the simple log type intakes.
Now, before we totally write off this intake concept as completely over the top, we’re pretty sure those are Holley 94 carbs which means they flow about 160 CFM a piece. Taking that number and multiplying it by six doesn’t even get us to 1,000 CFM so with the progressive linkage that this thing has, maybe it wouldn’t be so bad after all.
What do you think?
