Modifying `70 383 intake?


`70 383 road runner being biult as a nice driver/occasional strip car.I have a fairly mild combo- 9.5-1,torquer cam(don`t have specs here) To look stock I plan on running the stock intake and exhaust manifolds and factory equipped Holley 4160 carb.It has a 727 and 3.23 gears behind it but a gear swap for track days is easily done with the 8 3/4 rear.What I am looking for is how to modify the plenum area for my combo and are there any other mods I can do like gasket matching etc.Extrude hone is out due to budget.
Thanks, Jeff

This was originally a "STREET LEGAL TV" article link that got moved to the "ONE DIRT.COM" online site. There is a photo of a 1969 cast iron intake to see here.

Hey Dave, is there anyway you can have this put back into a more F.A.S.T. like part of POWER TV format?

Harry, that was a nice article on your Bee, I was wondering why you hadn't gotten a little more kudos for your 11 second Bee, especially with a 383 four barrel and cast iron intake! Congrats man!

Merry Christmas! Juan.

Jeff, if possible, you should attend some of the FAST races and look for Harry in the red 69 Bee with a 383 and ask him all the possible questions you can. He's very nice and very approachable.
