Is there an 8V (dual 4150 carb, low - med rise) for the 351C? If so, where can I find one?

Ford manufactured an experimental dual four barrel manifold, there are guys who have been looking for
it for decades but never found a copy, to them its the holy grail of experimental parts. Ford claimed
the Shelby (same as Blue Thunder) dual plane manifold with a list 4575 dominator (1050 cfm) made better
power, so Ford produced that manifold instead.



You can roll your own however, with the Offenhauser 360 Equa Flow intake as a foundation, you can
fabricate this

If you use a 351C 4V powered vehicle for a grocery getter ... the eggs aren't going to make it home!

That looks interesting! Thank you George for the information. I'm considering fabricating one of these. It could be a lot of fun!

Make sure you chew the gum real good before you use it to secure the top plate to the base like the guy did in the third photo.

I was looking more at the second picture because it is a bolt on plate with countersink bolts. It could have several bolt on plates that could be altered, open bore, or as shown. Leaves more options for experimenting and fine tuning.
