probably the best one is the old z/28 aluminum weiand hi-rise but also in the 80's they used alot of aluminum quadrajet manifolds if you're using a spread bore holley or quadrajet.

They won't accept a later Holley, will they?

I may be wrong but the 4 jet had a smaller base. I am thinking 62 to 64.

Chevy had early cast Q-Jet, Holley and Carter intakes. I know the Q-Jet and Holley had "R" and "H", respectively, cast on them. I'm not sure about the Carter. These had the oil filter tubes. They're available at swap meets.

Most of the aftermarket intakes were aluminum.

WHY ??

Are you racing in a class that requires cast iron intake manifolds?

THE BEST iron ones are in the GM Performance catalog. They are copies of the famous Z28 aluminum ones but in cast iron. GM made them for the racers...

Yes, I have to run a cast intake. I've got one that has a R casting, and one that has a S. I also have a Q-jet that is made by Carter.

Marine intakes are also very good. Intakes with a parting line serve many well.

If you are referring to the W cast into the manifold with the snowflakes surrounding it, it stands for Winters foundry not Weiand.
