Before I do anything with the carbs, the leak has to be corrected. Otherwise I might head in a different direction than the tunnel ram. We didn't change the angle on the cut as the heads matched the intake perfectly. We did the cut to lower the manifold which did smooth out the transition between the two parts.
I mentioned this earlier, but the only thing that concerns me is the china wall area. I don't think they milled it enough to let the manifold sink to its lowest point - and leaving a gap at the ends. There was a small gap, but nothing like we thought it would be - after two cuts. On the 16th, the car is going to the shop that did the cut, so we'll see what opinion they have.
Curious what kind of hp and torque we are putting out before playing with anything.
