help with alum ford intake

i found a alum. intake for a ford 302..not sure what year but the guy said it was a Weiand.. it has been powder coated so i cant see any numbers on it to know for sure..it has 4 holes instead of the open or the duel plain where the carb sits..cant seem to find much info or pics to show what it looks like but my question is can i use it with a 1406 edelbrock carb or a holley 600cfm carb on my ford 302 v8..right now i got a stock 2bbl intake and carb on the engine

Post a pic of the intake. And if you know for sure it will fit your 302 then yes it will work.

If it will fit the standard "square" Holley/E-brock base gasket, it will work with a current 1405/1406 or 600 cfm Holley. Unless it was a dual 4 bbl intake, there is probably a 95% plus chance that it will work. I would have more problems with not knowing the brand and model then what carb would work as some intakes just don't work well for daily drivers, low rpm applications.

yes a good upgrade over a 2bbl.

try to find a 600 cfm or smaller if your totaly stock

the oem 85-93 cam and heads would add a #$%^ load of power too if you can find em.

ERG car fires

The 85 has the erg system. all that heat on one corner makes the gasket deteriate . If you keep driving when it gets noisey from exhaust leaks , egr plate to manifold It will catch the carb on fire. There was a factiory heat shield under the carb. if that is removed you will have problems sooner. If the after market does not have an egr it should be ok.

egr heat shield

460 -holly 4 bbl trucks also have the heat shield. that[s where I found mine for my mustang. . I have had to replace egr gaskets about every 40 to 50 k miles. On my 302 Model A I will plug the egr, tig weld it shut, No smog required in 28,

Weiand made several intakes with OEM part's numbers on them in the late 60's and early 70 just so pure stock class could run an alum. high rise at the track (drag and road). They did this with AMC also for the Trans Am races. I think ford and AMC were the only ones.

im still looking and im still not sure about this intake..the guy wants 75 bucks for it so i just want to make sure this intake will be a good performance upgrade to what i have..im also thinking about a combo of a alum intake/cam,lifter kit that will go with my 1406 edelbrock carb that will give good hp gains...the engine i got is stock 40 over 302 with about 8500 miles that i bought to put in my 85 ranger..still thinking about the best bang for the buck without tearing the engine down and starting over..just want a nice running 302 that has some getup and go..not interested in drag racing just a good runner

I think any 4 bbl intake would be a performance upgrade but I wouldn't be happy with an EGR manifold. You could just block off the port and go from there. I looked at Edelbrock and at twice the price (160.00 bucks) the 85 is starting to look better! What are you planning on putting the engine in?
