Post Aluminum intake ID Help!!

I have a small block chevy aluminum intake manifold of unknown origin and I was wondering if I might get some help identifying it.

It's a 4 bbl intake and the only identifying marks on it are an "EF usa" cast inside of a circle on the underside. There are no names, marks,
cast dates of any kind on the top side. It also has "US PAT. NO. 4461248" cast into the bottom along with the following numbers stamped
above certain ports on the bottom side "D142" "W1275" and "491" Also there is a "2101" cast into the bottom side.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks for your help in advance

2101 is the Edelbrock performer intake. it maybe likely you got a intake someone had ground off the name and painted it in order to bend the rules a little or possibly wanted a street sleeper and wanted to use the old line "hey, it`s just a stock engine"

Thanks, I had considered someone had ground off any ID info, but if they did, they did an outstanding job. I worked on polishing it and there are no grinder marks in any of the places where the name would have been. Thanks for the reply and confirming it for me!!
