The intake shown is an aluminum version of the 428 P.I. It is the best available for a street FE. The C6AZ 9424-M was the same version but with the carburetor pad set off to one side to equalize runner length (higher RPM useage).

Building a thumper is not going to power a heavy BIRD so as it to have it do what you want to do. You need to follow proven technology (street vs. race) to have a balanced performance street engine (IMO)
