    I know GM has a intake avail for TBI vortecs. I thought Edelbrock did too but I did not find one in their site...Anyone have info on Edelbrock or GM intake alternatives?

    Edelbrock does not make one and I called them a few months ago and they said they do not have one in the works. I would imagine they might make them sometime but don't think it will be soon. GM is the only place I have seen them.

    Yep, I believe thats the only one available. Have you bought the heads yet? If not you can get the TBI vortec kit from paceparts.com for 1100 bones, comes with "everything" you need including the heads, the intake, the gaskets, yada yada.

    What is and what should never be....

    I currently have a 350HO with a edelbrock intake. I just got my EFI together and wasnt too crazy about using adapter plates.
    Does the GM intake have a EGR provision? Is ot one of those goofy pipe down the size of the engine to the header ones? Or did they figure something out

    when I got the intake and the provision for the EGR was one of those 'goofy' pipes that does down the side to the headers... [​IMG] LOL

    actually from what I understand Edelbrock makes this intake for GM so that might by why they don't 'have one in the works'... the guy at Jim Pace Chev. told me this (and they sell a tone of the stuff!)
