The new MM&FF has a blurb that Barry Grant is now producing 2 barrel carbs for use with Chebby tri-power setups and has a 351W tri power intake in the works.
That would really be cool.....
I wonder if it would ever works as well as a performer RPM with a good holley though....

I'd bet that the right aluminum intake and single Holley would out perform it. They are "cool" though.

Just a model I bet. Surely they are not producing a production plastic intake...
Hey remember the guys who made plastic composite connecting rods in the early 80s?
Poly motor I think they were called.

I don't have a problem with plastic, the right plastics are much stronger than cast aluminum and don't conduct heat nearly as well.

I wonder if you can mold plastic intakes to dimensionally connect tolerences?
No machining required....

That will add a whole new level of excitement to a carb fire! Melt the intake too.

The Chevy carbs probably won't fit a Ford since they have center inlet bowls and are longer.

A 351W "tri power" (if we gotta use GM marketing names) is a bit odd ... the 3-2V setups are a 50's and early 60's idea that was abandoned before the 351W ever came out. It's like making a 6 Stromberg intake for 4.6 DOHC. I would think a 351W version of the old dual Holley 4V's 289 intake would be a better idea.

The prototype FoMoCo 351C tri-power set up that was to go on the Boss 351 Mustang was designed for cathedral bowl Holley carbs as found on Corvettes and Six Pack Mopars.
The BG set up is for cathedral bowls.

I saw one of the cleveland tri power intakes a few years ago at a swap meet for $1800.
The guy said six or eight were produced.

Cleveland tripower -- now there's a sweet idea. Of course, I think a strip dominator, 750HP, and a shaker will suit me just fine... whenever I can afford it.
