Anyone know anything about the Offenhauser 360 intake? Is it dual plane? -Max

Here's what Daniel Jones says on his excellent 351C page on Mike Dailey's Pantera web site;
http://www.PanteraPlace.com/page35.htm

"An Offenhauser 360 Equa-Flow 351C-4V (p/n 5964). This is a low rise, single plane, intake manifold with split plenum. Note the notch in the plenum divider. The theory is that, under full throttle, the intake will act more like an open plenum, while under part throttle the divider will improve low rpm throttle response. Itís the lowest of all single plane manifold designs available for the Cleveland. Also available with a Holley Dominator carb bolt pattern under (p/n 5966). Donít confuse these manifolds with the Offy Dual Port which is an entirely different approach. See the manifold guide (under construction) for details."

Hey guys, in a word.....it SUCKS! I have had better results from a factory FoMoCo cast iron intake. Offy used to be a pioneer in manifold technology in their heyday, but that day has long since passed them by. If you call them for anything other than Flathead parts these days, it's on back order! Those intakes (the 360 equa-flo) can be had a swap meets for $50 or less. The last one that I had I sold for $35 and I had to throw in a heat shield to get rid of it. Alex

Alot depends on your application and if the price is right, if its FREE, NO COST, go for it. But if the funds have to come from your pocket, there are better manifolds available.

Weiand products are good and will only get better now that they have been purchased by Holley. The Stealth unit is a pretty decent piece already. Give them a year or two for some R&D and they will be nipping right at Edelbrock's heals. Alex
