Like 'larryblack' said it's just a cast iron Q-Jet intake, the parts catalog listed anything with a 4 Bbl. and dual exhaust as "Special High Perf." back then. They all had that crossover passage under the front so they required a gasket set with a stainless steel shim. Don't throw it away, it's better than a 2 bbl. but nothing "special".
