My 78 F-150 has a 351M in it, which I understand has the same "basic" relationship with the 460 that 289 and 302 has.

My dad has a 351C 4-v intake sitting in the garage he's not using. I think I remember something about the 351M not having much in common with the 351C, but I'm still wondering if the 351C 4-v (DO casting) intake would fit the 351M.

Thanks guys.

No, sorry. They are different deck heights. I think there are spacer plates available if you want to create a pricey frankenstein.

The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that, you got it made.

No, not that big of a deal. I've been toying with the idea of putting a 4-v on my truck, and I remembered dad having an intake. Its not worth any effort beyond a direct bolt-on.

Thanks for the info Steve

Search Ebay for an aluminum 4V Edelbrock or Weiand intake for 351M/400 motors. They usually go for around $100.

I really need to get some pics of my truck taken. You'll see right quick it ain't worth $100.
