351-W cast iron intakes

I have a mid 80s truck 4 bbl intake on my 351-W and was thinking about replacing it with a earlier version from a 69 or 70,anybody know if it would be any better as I hear those truck intakes were not the best. I know a aluminum intake would be better but I want a stock painted look since its in my 55 Ford convertible.

Well I see no one has answered you, honestly I think it would be a total waste of time. Find a nice used Edelbrock Performer on ebay for cheap, paint it the desired color and forget about it. You could even grind the "Edelbrock" off and most folks would never notice it. You would gain a little performance and lose about 40 lbs. on the front end.

ill reply, almost all the Windsor intakes are restrictive, other than going aluminum I would try to find one and buy a port and polish kit for around $35.00 then cut out the restrictor runners and then open up the ports a little bit, since theyre cast iron you can put some force into it.
