That very well could be there must have been decals on the flat spots, but I'm not familiar with it looks like crinkle paint..Vernski

Re: Tricked-out Chevy six cylinder engines

has anyone ever made their own l6 intake manifold before?
it would look cool and would be way cheaper.
but there has to be a reason why intake manifolds are cast

im a cheapo that wants a intake for a 4 barrel or 2
throw some suggestions or ideas out there please

call me crazy(which i am) but i think it would be sweet

Re: Tricked-out Chevy six cylinder engines

Thanks all. Yes, it is a Mercruiser valve cover and it would have had stickers in those flat locations. I had it wrinkled powder coated and then sanded off the top of the fins. Very happy how it turned out. I have a couple ideas for those flat spots but need to get the couple emblems to see if I like my idea.

As for the heades, they are Clifford shorty ones. They are actually split and one points back and the other points more down.

Leo Santucci's manual on Chev inlines shows some home built stuff but not much detail on them. I was disappointed in the manual cause it's all in black&white, maybe a search on the web will bring up something..Vernski

I have pondered this idea i have also seen several home made intakes can't say i recall where i seen them on the web but i've seen them. My guess of why there cast is because that is the fastest way to make somthing like a intake or exhaust manifold. I think like building a split manifold you would probably have the best results modifying the org intake to accept a 4 barrel.

Also you said a 4 barrel or 2 do you mean 2 4bbls or a 4bbl or a 2bbl you can put a 2bbl on the org intake with a 10 dollar adapter.

Yes I have built my own intake/s I have a 3x4 tunnel ram the holds 3 450 holleys on my 250 and it is also in Leo's book. So thinking of building your own is Not a bad thing.
PS. that intake is also my AV pic.

Re: Tricked-out Chevy six cylinder engines

those are all badass, gives me some whole new ideas now that i see how simple people make them. now i think im just going to make some headers now.
i figure nothink else on my truck is normal or what anyone has so might as well keep it that way

the hardest part will be to find the flang that bolts up to the cylinder head unless something else uses the same ones, like exhaust headers?

Re: Tricked-out Chevy six cylinder engines

Making a home made intake has gone through my mind. My future plan is to take a 37 chevy and drop in a 292 with triple carters. Always liked the looks of the dual or triple carb setup. Thought of doing it on mine, but it would only allow limited power with the carbs I would use.

I always liked the looks of three carbs also remember the SU's on the older Jag's? they were cool. These days I think about dual or triple Weber's, only problem with that is the money tree someday maybe but for now the Edelbrock will have to do, but how about dual 4's just for kick's that would have the look..Vernski

Definately dual 4 barrels would have the look...... just wouldn't run to well.... Larry at twisted 6 has triple 450 cfm holleys on one of his 6 cylinders. But that was with extensive head work I think....Webers well from what I hear you gotta be careful on which ones ya pick epecsially when talking about duals. Larry at clifford claims his dual weber 38 dgas system works on a stock 250. Kinda hard to believe wouldn't ya say. I mean a 500 cfm edelbrock on a stock 250 is alot let alone dual weber 38's.

But that's why they make re-jet kits so you can lean em' out to the sweet spot
for air & fuel not just slap em' on there and sink & swim that is if you think outside the box. You just want to start a pissing match, just try to be happy with yourself now..Vernski

Wasn't trying to make anybody angry. And I know about re-jet kits. In fact I was told I might need one for my 4 barrel on my 6, but it actually runs just fine out of the box! No jet kit needed. The motor does run just a tad rich... And I am not out to start a fist fight, just telling you what I was told. And I am happy with myself.

Re: Tricked-out Chevy six cylinder engines

?????? Has anybody used the triple one barrel setup? Or the dual weber system?
I,ve seen the dual or triple one barrel system a 235 or 261, but what about the 194-230-250-292?
