SBC Log Intake 4x2

I'm wondering what kind of performance would this intake will give out..What do you think of the style. As you can see it is setup for three bolt base carbs, Strombergs or Holly 94s..

That's more eye candy than power maker. Those were very common in the 50s and early 60s, because they were basicly "kits" that were assembled by the owner/installer. They allowed a wide variety of engines to have a multiple carb sytem while only having to make a few varied components by the manufacturer. If you look at the variety of engines available from the different companies, many no longer around, you can see how it would have been hard to focus on one brand. Also there was a lot of intake advances made in the early to mid 60s and even more since then. If you are looking for the most power that isn't it, although it should make good power. The shortness of the intake makes it more favorable toward top end. A little development could make it work better at lower r's. All that said, they are a unique look , which you don't see much anymore. You can probably still find them from several companies that specialize in vintage speed equipment , if you are looking.I think I see new ones still, that were never used.I believe the name of the big company at the time was "U-Fab". If you made that one, you won't need to look. If you are just out for looks, go for it. I do think the drivability and fuel usage won't be that good though.

Hey Woodz, nice to see some of the old school guys around, back in the day we made some wild looking but inefficient parts, intakes were always a favorite of mine. Engineering and efficiency....? We've come a long way baby....

the name was U-Fab, and the price in 59, I think, was 19.95.
