What heads you running sunshine?

What manifold you got atm and is it the one you want to run with?

Can get it hand ported but lots of so called experts.

there is another process where they pull a resin thru it and it smooths the inside up

Or can get the manifold cnc ported

If you want a few places or havent brought yet pm me and can throw a few names out , will post some pics of the manifold l got done for mine . when l get home later

I brought a new super victor when i was just building a tempory motor, but now things are getting out of hand, the cnc super victor looks good and would have been a good option but there are $600 in the US , if i was keen to buy a new one id also look more into the AFR titan 2 peice manifold, look very good and the same money.

Ill get some prices and if they want 400-500 for the job ill just buy one of those and sell the one i have,

just an update on this for anyone who may be interested, got a couple of prices on getting manifold fully ported

one place said $1000-$1200 and the other want $1500

Definatly not a cheap exersise,

So i will be buying a differnt style of manifold that is bigger and port matching it myself with a little tickle here and there aswell.

I have a brand new eddlebrock super victor manifold still in the box if anyone wants it $260 I just paid $310 for it a few months ago

Ahh welcome to my world mate, you only stirred the water on the surface of costs when you actually want to go fast. As seen in my build up l use a 2858 thats been cnc to suit 12.5 deg heads but yes mate the thing that doesnt really show up there is $3100 worth of mods just so we could get the lowest manifold in height and not to kill the heads in airflow/turbluence, since its not a drag car and not wanting it to stick out of the bonnet :)

look up this one mate
Chevrolet Small-Block V8
SUPER VICTOR II (4000-8000 rpm)
This all new small-block Chevy manifold is designed to work with modern high flowing 23° heads on large cubic inch applications. The runner area at the plenum is 25% larger than our Super Victor #2925, and the port exits are sized for use with a Fel-Pro #1206 intake gasket. Modern casting techniques create smooth, thin and extended divider walls for "out-of-the-box" performance. Just port match (up to #1207 - 1.38" x 2.28") and go. This intake is machined for 4150 style carburetors. Available Spring 2012.


there is the old hurricane style that is very similar .

that super victor II looks very good especially for 23 deg heads!

I did look at a super victor two, I called AFR and they told me that they have seen best results with a supervictor 4500 flane manifold,
So i called eddlebrock and they said the 4500 flange manifold has much bigger runners and plenium than the normal super victor 4150.
And they also said that it definatly flows alot better than a CNC ported 4150 super victor.
So since i have a dominator anyway i think i will grab one and just port match it myself and see how it goes, it will be a cheap exersise and should be very good from what eddlebrock and AFR told me.

yeah 3g for manifold porting is bloody harsh, But thats why they say "speed is a matter of money how fast can you go""

Are still claiming your eninge should be good for 500hp :lol: 850hp more like it
