Ford 460 EFI Manifold Questions

First of all... I know its literally been years since I've posted here. A lot has changed for me, and after a load of other issues I am finally returning to my car projects.

I am currently working on a mostly stock 460 in an F-250. I am assembling a stack of parts to swap on, the usual cam/lifters/geardrive, but right now I am looking for an EFI manifold. The stock manifold has the right-angle throttle body and the long runners over the the airbox at the driver's front. I really need that space for other things (more to come on that) and i need to convert this to a "normal" 4 barrel style intake, but I have come up dry so far in my search. 4 barrel throttle bodies are too easy... just no manifolds... any suggestions?

Yeah, a 4 barrel carb manifold with injector bungs welded in is very common, I even run such a set up on my SBC powered S-15.

That one may have to wait till I get back to the states Right now I am stuck at the mercy of the APO mail system and the fact that I don't speak enough German to tell a machinist what I need... but driving a big American truck in Europe is fun

Some of the cheaper sbc(maybe others) intakes have undrilled bungs for nitrous ,These could also be drilled for injectors.
