Carb lift plate OK on Vortec intake?
I got to looking at things after I got the intake (Edlebrock 7116) mounted to my factory Vortec heads. The intake has 8 bolts in total, but the bolts are all around the front and back of the intake, no bolts in the middle where the carb is located. I am concerned that using a carb lift plate to lift the motor back in the truck is going to warp the intake and cause leaks. Am I being paranoid?
