It was only a few years ago that Trick Flow released their line of Chrysler wedge heads for the most popular engines that the company made. The LA series PowerPort 190 heads have been heartily embraced by the Chrysler community as the are priced right, capable of supporting great power, and they are manufacturer to allow those that want to get creative with the porting tools to have at it. Now, a great head only gets better when it is matched to the correct intake manifold and that’s what we’re talking about today.
The new Trick Flow Track Heat intake for LA series Chrysler engines is the perfect matched addition to those PowerPort 190 heads. Heck, the thing was designed to really shine with those heads but it was also optimized to be a deep breathing component no matter what cylinder head you are bolting it to.
This intake is designed to work the best in the 3,000-7,000 RPM range and as you can see, those curled runners mean awesome torque and great flow throughout the power band. This is great!
Here’s the story from Trick Flow on the killer Track Heat intake manifold –
Does your LA series small block Mopar need a midrange power boost? Trick Flow’s Track Heat intake manifold is just the ticket. Its one-piece spider-type design features extended high-flow runners and a raised plenum floor to increase power in the 3,000 to 7,000 RPM range—right where a street or mild race engine needs it most.
The Track Heat intake is dyno-optimized for Trick Flow’s PowerPort® 190 cylinder heads, but it works well with most aftermarket cylinder heads. Trick Flow added extra material around the port openings for custom port matching, plus bosses that can be drilled for nitrous nozzles. Mmm, nitrous.
The Trick Flow Track Heat intake manifold accepts any 4150-style square bore carburetor. With a carburetor mounting pad height of 5.125 inches, the manifold should fit under most hoods.
