That is cool I mad a single top for one. Or I should say I plugged the two holes and welded a old q-jet to Holley adapter on it. Run really good till about 5500, then ti would run out of power. I think the two fours looks better and might run better.

Did you do any porting? The 305 ports are tiny i took a good 3/4'' out of the ports so that should make it alot better.

No I only did some port matching. The 350 I put it on was one of those $100 buck rebuild. Had a RV grind cam in it (204,214 Dur@50 and 443,465 LIft). It run out about were the cam did.

2-4 BBL manifold

Wow, looks cool. Kind of reminds me of the Edelbrock Street Tunnel Ram of the 1967-69 era. They were used on some of the Can-Am Camaros with dual Holley Carbs. You might think these were the forerunners of the Crossfire Fuel Injection offered on later Corvettes and Camaros, eh? :shock: What a concept, hope they work out for you as the afoermentioned manifold was very competetive. Good luck with your project.

The intake looks great, I "saved" one from the aluminum bin at a local scrap yard years ago thinking of the same idea. Its still sitting on the shelf. What you built is basically the same thing as the 2x4 intake that came in the trunk of a 1968 Z28. cool enough to cause drool.
