I decided to try and see how the intake manifold Lang's sells actually was so I ordered one. After a bit of sanding and polishing on just half you can see how nicely it will clean up. It appears that it would fit very nicely with the dual exhaust manifold although I will be welding up headers instead.
The Polish - I mean polished version looks great!
With better attention during the casting process you can get a way better finish than that garbage. Proper degassing and drossing would be a good start. That just looks like plain lazy work to me.
That's one nice looking Zenith carburetor!
I no nothing about aftermarket intakes. What is the benefit of this one?
Over the years I have encountered thousands of sand castings. The one shown looks pretty good to me Garnet
Vroom, Vroom, Steve! The engine says to us "I can BREATHE!" IF the exhaust will let it... :-)
I had a really cobbled together header on my Crappy 24 early on. Pretty good performance for a plum wore out engine.
When I put the correct exhaust manifold on it, it just went lame. Even with a 2-1/2" pipe out the back.
Sounds great but he's more lame.
Chad, that looks wonderful!

Yes, as a rough casting it's spot-on.
The interior isn't nearly as bad as the exterior was. I had no idea how the intake was when I bought it and thought I would share what I found out. As for the exhaust Im going to run 1.5" header tubes that do a 90 up then another 90 back to horizontal, at least thats the plan then into a 3 or 4 inch collector. She should breath well enough
