Will those engine lift plates that attach to the intake work for a tbi intake?
You mean throttle body spacers? If so, then yes, they work well. But it's not a night and day difference. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif
No, I mean the plates with several holes in them that bolt to the intake in place of the carb/ throttle body used for lifting out the engine. And I'm very familiar with the tbi spacers, in fact I plan to put one on soon.
I'm not too sure that I would use one... seeing that the TBI intake is aluminum... I'd much rather use one of these in each of the four corners of the intake (intake to head bolts):
Just my .02!
I once lifted a 454, TH 400, and NP 208 all bolted together with a carb plate. It wasn't my stuff though...so to each his own.
I use a chain with grade 8 bolts going through it from the accessory holes. I NEVER use a carb plate.
