Just wondering if anyone has used one of these yet. There is also another Aussie made manifold for clevo's on the market that supposidly outperforms the funnelweb (apparently the spider has some distribution problems).

I have not. The intake on my 4v headed motor is the standard strip dominator. The intake I was running on my 2v headed motor is from Australia though (at least I was told it was). It seemed to work real well, but I dont know much about it other than it was expensive and it looks just like a victor jr. All it says on it is the word "Active" on the top of the right front runner. No part number to be found anywhere.

The name 'Active' rings a bell. Not sure though, Eradicator also comes to mind. I'll have to dig through some of my old mags and see if there are any adverts.

Have gotten word of another clevo manifold. TFC make one. So that makes the local list down under as: Eradicator, Funnelweb, TFC, and Active. All Roush style single planes. Pretty cool Now, which one is best???

There is a good chance I will be purchasing a TFC manifold. If I do I'll take some pics and post them.

Looks good, could you use real almonds instead of the extract? (I'm giving the recipe to my wife).

Well, I will need to take more pics. I seem to have mis-placed that roll of film. Too bad too. It had some pics of my port work on it.

They apparently work even better with a 1" 4hole spacer. Meant to be good for over 700HP.

WOW that sure is a tall intake!! I thought my Active intake was tall. It doesnt look near as tall as that one is though.

No way that would fit under a stock hood.

Paul,
Is that intake designed for filled floor 4V ports? The ports look almost like a C302 SVO heads from the '80s. A great head BTW.

Yes Mpcoluv, it is designed for filled floors, although you can use it on stock heads as well.

Can the ports be opened up to the approx. 1.88" X 2" dimensions of a 4V with Roush inserts?

There was an Aussie guy at the Columbus swap this fall that had some Active intakes on display. He also had some Australian made billet timing chain sets, dampers, and a new Cleveland style cylinder head that looked pretty good. The name of the company is Australian Muscle Parts(California) 562-428-9764, fax 562-428-2060 Mike Fielder was the guy at the booth. Mike's e-mail is [email protected] (I'm not sure about the dot between "net" and "2000".)

The stock port dimensions are 1.94" x 1.42". There is plenty of meat around the opening for matching.

>There was an Aussie guy at the Columbus swap this fall that had
>some Active intakes on display.

Actually that intake was a TFC. Mike had previously been importing
the Active intake but he said he was having trouble getting them so
he picked up the TFC. The one he had on display at Columbus was for
a 4V with intake port tongues. A 2V version is supposedly "coming
soon".

>He also had some Australian made billet timing chain sets

"RaceMaster Ultralite" 9 position keyway, double roller timing
chain. Pretty nice looking piece. I picked one up for a
Cleveland.

>dampers

He had a bunch of Powerbond stuff there but I didn't see any Romac,
which I thought he also handled.

>Cleveland style cylinder head that looked pretty good

That's the CHI (Cylinder Head Innovations) "3V" cylinder head.
The info sheet Mike handed out at the PRI show said the intake
was designed in conjunction with P.R.E. Racing Engines. The
"3V" name is to designate it's not a 2V or a 4V port size.
The heads use 4V size valves and standard Boss 351 style rockers,
studs, and guideplates. Seats are "hi nickel chrome inserts"

The ports are unique though they claim you can use 4V intake
and exhaust manifolding. They would not be a direct bolt on,
however. The intake port floor is filled and may be narrower
(forgot to measure it). The exhaust is also raised but it's
not clear by how much. It certainly looks high enough to
cause trouble with any of my Cleveland powered vehicles.

I tried to get an imprint off the head to see how it would
match 2V/4V/high port intakes but Mike didn't want me to.
he said the head was a machining reject for display purposes
only (had the bolts drilled in the wrong place).

>The name of the company is Australian Muscle Parts(California)

The dot is not there. Also, the Australian contact info is:

53 Ryan Road
Parkenham, Victoria 3810
(011) 613 5940 2337 phone
(011) 613 5940 2338 fax

He also imports Yella Terra roller rockers, Racemasters cam drives,
single and dual idler gear drives, belt drives (Windsor and BBF),
camshaft thrust retaining kits, etc.

The intake pictured above has much narrower ports than a 4V with the Roush or Pantera's East inserts. Do they make their own port inserts?

Jim,

Yup, TFC makes there own intake and exhaust tongues, developed in 1982, so the company has been around awhile. The TFC box also stated "TFC Heads and Manifolds" like they might make heads as well. Anyone ever heard of them?
