Could you possibly machine the 4 hole adapter down and adapt a 4150 pad to it somehow?
Or maybe this may work.....

can the welded flange not be simply milled off, so you can keep using what you already have?
pix of the flange would help.

I think I found my fuel pressure issue last night. The filter is a 100 micron stainless and pretty new. I filter the fuel going in and only use brand name stuff - VP M1, Sunoco, etc. I also treat with Klotz, keep the system closed up, etc. Thought no way, not a filter problem. Well - drained the tank, pulled the big Aeromotive filter and the filter looked like the lint tray for a clothes dryer after two loads of towels. WTF - where does that junk come from? Ordered two more from Summit, will test the flow again end of next week. Apparently still on the methanol learning curve.

That's weird. I've never had anything like that show up in my filter, and I used to run some cheap alcohol. I'm talking stuff that was 85 bucks a drum, and the drums were unlabeled plastic drums.

Rob,
It sounds like a different intake with a 4150 pad might be an easier thing to use. I assume you can port match it to the heads. If you don't have a mill and a welder in the garage, it's likely cheaper to buy a different manifold then any of your other options.

Yeah, you are probably correct. I can port match it, that's not a problem. I've done a bit of grinding in my day. ;)

I think finding an intake that fits those heads would be the trickiest part. The intake that came with them is originally a Yates intake that was ported to match the heads. It's really nice work too, clear up in to the plenum. I did notice the spacer they welded to the intake is a Wilson's spacer, so it wasnt a cheap one.
I did pull a couple of valves out of the heads just to check the sizes. The intakes are 2.19, and the exhaust are 1.71. They've been upsized from what the heads originally came with. I did notice a little short turn work had been done to them, and the bowl had been opened up to match the new valve sizes. I plan to have them flowed before I bolt them on just so I know what I've got.

I have one. TFC made it. No idea on the part number.

I'll see them from time to time on ebay and at swap meets.

What's it have for and intake? I have a pretty good stash of the older FMS high port stuff so if it needs a new lid, look me up.

Best,

Maybe you missed this?

I did see that, but kind of forgot about it since I thought I had one I could use without changing anything.
Thanks for reminding me.

Filter issue fixed, pressure back to normal. Race again for some big $ weekend of 27th. Rain, rain - if it doesn't dry up next week no way to move the trailer and load the car. I would test the motor and load this weekend but the ground is too wet for 4 tires holding 11,000 lbs. Off next Friday - maybe then. If long term f-cast is right it'll be a beautiful, fast weekend. But around here, anything more than 3 days out is pure guessing unless it's the dead of summer.
