My intake manifold.

I have a question that sounds pretty dumb but no one that I talk to knows the answer. I have a 72 Ford LTD which has a 351C V8 and it has a stock 2 BBL carb on it. I want to replace this with a 4 BBL. My question is do I need a different manifold. Please help.

Yes, the best way is to put on a four barrel intake. I never did like those adapters.

Im not really too up on fords except to tell ya there are a lot of differences so make sure all/everything bolts up correctly I noticed between my 77 & 79 460's that the 79 has a dolly type carb where the other has a carter type.

well that is all I have for now

Just make sure it is a 351C and not a 400.

You can still buy a new aftermatket intake to put a 4 bbl on the 2V motor. They come up on ebay too and don't generally get bid too high.

They are great engines and will produce 400 hp fairly easily.

They were designed and built in the smog era of low compression open chamber heads and tiny cams run retarded for smog compliance. Properly set up they are very good. Just not popular like a Windsor.

FYI Chevies of the mid 70s were pretty sad also.

I just love the mid 70's Vette guys looking for performance water pump gaskets for their stock SBC. Especially when they tell me parts for a 'regular 350' wont do. I almost hate to inform them that Corvettes were also part of the smog cut down and sported a lovely low 200hp range on their engines as well. Anyways, thats a bit off subject.

As long as we're off...

the little red express from 78 and 79 was actually faster than the vette. That usually makes the vette boys cry too. Difference in emissions standards sent the ol' semi knock-off sailing by the vette on the street.

Mopar to ya-
