Yep, on some years they just painted them black. The 4.3L V6 in my '91 S-Jimmy had a factory aluminum intake that was painted black. The one on the 350 in the '94 Suburban is just natural aluminum color. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

Many (if not all) of the 454 TBI intakes were cast iron.

Yep! Forgot about the 454's. The one I got my 454 throttle body from had a cast iron Q-Jet intake with a cast aluminum adapter between it and the throttle body. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

you are quite correct, I forgot about 454s, they were cast iron QJet manifolds.

My buddy had the Qjet intake & adapter on his '88 Burb. However, every 454 TBI I've seen in the restyled trucks (88-95) had a one piece cast iron intake though. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Maybe a Gen V change? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
