    Daily has had an erratic idle for quite some time now. Figured it was the cracked intake boots. 48897A10-B3CF-49B8-83DD-618C7F6A9DB8

    Inside of boot was still good???F5279A65-626C-471F-BDB1-2F4CCD0A4591

    The intake manifold ends are epoxied in place. 126B4D2F-1CD7-4386-8AAD-7AD7C8A03B21

    Pass side had let loose.41D52092-D657-4699-95B0-C50630E42705

    Franz mentioned there may be a better intake in the trailer. CHROME!!! And it has heat risers!DEB77A06-C260-4F3D-9CC4-A619558C7866

    Had to wiggle the fan shroud up to get the new intake in place. 9F540C40-D603-4D46-AD44-822549F17500

    Riley tore down and cleaned the carb up, removed all the PITA bolts, and helped out a ton! Thanks Bud!! AED09B0A-C8C0-433E-8611-7900ABE7BEE9

    We will build it if it comes.

    Pat, I’ve got the same Empi intake on 2 of my cars. Knock on wood , I haven’t had an issue yet. Are you gonna fab something up for the throttle linkage to work with the new intake?

    I run a CB Per. base plate with the mount for their sheath cable. No mobs required to the intake.

    Followed Franz’s advice and opened the squirters up to .060 from .050 during the cab rebuild. Much smoother acceleration.

    All back together. The new intake ends are flared down so they sleeve into the end casting. That along with the heat riser make it much sturdier . 2038B138-6411-4B1A-A636-D4CE979CA66C7BCFC7BF-E528-4848-BBB2-17A1DBAC3023

    Wow! I didn’t know that throttle sheath kit existed! Thx for the link. That will get rid of all my linkage slop. 👍
