I’ve been Gathering parts and plan on having things to the machine shop here soon. I’m now looking at heads and have mede the decision to invest in a set of TF270’s. So I’ll need to tackle the B-series MW intake dilemma. How good is the Indy intake? How tall is it? Would I be better off with that or re-working my current M1? Trickflow says their intake seals to the 270 heads and can be ported to fit them…. Is that a better option than the Indy? If I went that direction I’m sure I would inherit hood clearance issues, which means investing in a glass hood and scoop since I’m not going to cut my flawless factory hood. Lots to consider.
I’m sure this topic has been beat to death elsewhere, but please weigh in with your opinion.
BTW: My CNC’d Stealths, along with a few other items will be for sale if anyone is interested…. I’ll post them up in the ads section as soon as they’re availabl.

Indy single plane is a great intake with the 4150 flange. The 4500 version is a little funky. That said I ran a 4150 with a 4500 adaptor on my roadrunner steet car for a bit. Thing was awesome, by far the best intake/carb combo I’ve had on it. The intake was ported M/W size. I also built the carb, ( one reason it worked so well on the street). Didnt have the normal dominator to fat to cruise calibration. It would be my choice for all out performance street or strip. That was on a 400/512. I actually have that intake on my dads car right now instead of the 4500 version. I may send the 4500 one to Wilson. M1 is a viable option. I’d spend the money to have it ported by Wilson as well if that’s the route you choose. It’ll be down on power from a ported Indy though. Andy F’s 470 build had a lot of good info on it as far as the intake.
And yes I’m a dominator guy, don’t get me wrong. I’ve built some really good running 4150’s. I just think the dominators make more power. And they can drive around just as good as a 4150 if built correct.
