    hey guys,

    i was wanting to know your opinion on this setup for my crate 350 tbi. i want to use a 4 barrel power+plus cross wind intake with a tbi that i got bored out and added a regulator to. i found a 4 barrel to tbi plate for the intake, although the holes for the tbi over lap the the top of the intake, i plan to dremmel out the amount that does over lap at an angle to make it as smooth of a incline as possible without sacraficing the integrity of the intake walls. i am gonna use a higher volume fuel pump for this so i can use all of its potental.

    anyone see any problems, anyone seen this before? most are probably thinking why do all this when you can buy a holly tbi intake or something like that. those intakes just do not look high performance enough for me. let me know your thoughts.


    thanks,

    brandt

    actually lots of people do this. I am doing it on my TBI Rig. I am just using an Edelbrock Performer manifold I have. A 2" bored 454 throttle body, high pressure fuel pump, regulator. Should be good and breath way better than a stock or I bet a Holley intake. I'd also dremmel down the center divider of the intake. I'm not sure if the Power Plus manifold is like that already or not. It allows the motor to breath from both throttle bores at high throttle/RPM. I don't mean mill it all the way down to the intake floors, just an inch or so with a nice radius on it so the motor can breath a little more.
