History is a funny thing and it is all about perspective. If you were to tell 1960s hot rodders what would be available from the factory today in terms of raw performance they’d buy a ticket on the next time machine ride. From Hellephant crate engines to the incredible cylinder head options out there, it would be a wondrous thing for them to see. That said, we look backward and revel what these guys could buy over the counter from their local dealer. Stuff like the intake manifold below which is a factory designed and made dual quad tunnel ram for FE engines.
This particular intake will bolt onto any FE engine unlike the tunnel port stuff which needed the special heads to fit. This one uses medium riser style ports so if you have a hankering for all this goodness on top of your FE, bolt away. In reading a load of posts on Ford boards, this sucker will apparently fit under the hood of most period cars as well.
Is it overkill? Yes. Will it be more eye-candy than legit performance upgrade for many engines? Probably. Do we still want it? Hell yes.
