    Autocross or roadcourse I like the 406, for drag setup, 468.

    I like that 406 intake, is it the 300-25? I noticed it’s the old one with the “winters” snow flake. I got dropped off a couple of weeks ago, original and not been hacked up, the casting and port alignment is great!! Better then most “new”
    Intakes on the market today, makes ya think.

    Dyno numbers? I use the track at my Dyno, numbers are just that numbers. My buddy with his big buck legal car and 571 HP BBC is not even close in ET compared to my baby 406 and he has spent over $800 dynoing that engine.

    Got 4 more engines in the storage place that are good to go also. I guess the wife is right when she says I have to much stuff. LOL.

    It is the old 300-25 and it has worked very well for me in the past for a $50 intake. Picked up another last fall on a trade for a Torker II. I thought that was a pretty good deal myself. That one has a little port work but it looks pretty good. I would swap it for a SBC SV 2925 as I need another one of those for testing.
