We also learned the high cost of big-block parts when we hunted for an aluminum intake at many swap meets. We paid just $15 for a somewhat mangled Torker intake when we built our 350, but couldn’t find a used big-block unit for under $125. By swinging a deal with the same guy we got the vibration damper from, we finally got an Edelbrock Torker II 2-O for $100. The manifold is designed for large oval ports, and it’s really not recommended for our peanut-ports, but we did it anyway. The carb is the very same 800-cfm double-pumper that had served duty on the 350 small-block. It was $50 at a swap meet.
