Restoration / Re: Reproduction 472 Intake Manifold

It would be interesting to know if it has the GM part number and "W". I was told on the corvette tripower intake that there was two, one with the above and one without. Serious price difference. The one with is available to anybody for $2300.00 and the other only through certain dealers, usually included as a package "Hot Rod" setup.

I have seen it before. Clutch exploded. That what scattershields are for. Car might be easy to find. Holes or big dents in the floor.

I think NC went to 2 stickers in the mid 70,s from new plates every year. I have a 1975 plate. Now we are down to just the year sticker with a bar code. They says the police computers can do everything from just the number. The prison inmates make the plates. I think in the 70,s they pushed for and got minimum wage which caused the yearly plates to be more costly.

If that is from the AIM evidently the line did not see that picture of the cut out. Were the standard 3 speeds cut like that also?

I am not that worried about the electric cars for now. With the range, lack of charging stations, and other things I think the novelty will wear off. When you pay your power bill for that 50 amp quick charger that runs off power that is mostly created by fossil fuels you kind of need to think about the inconvenience of planning your day around your round trip mileage. If you drive your 1st gen Camaro at least there is a high test pump every few miles.

I have used both. Ricks people I think know Camaro parts well and Classic is really good about returns. Classic sent a friend 3 doors until he was satisfied with the fit, no problem.

The performance is hard to gage because of traction with the 235 tires. Throttle response is crisp, the secondarys kick in well and sound good, it starts and runs well except idle in gear which I feel is a vacuum leak problem that I can cure. Once that is sorted out I will put a few miles on it.

Well it stopped raining here so Saturday it snowed. But Sunday I did get the Camaro out to drive with the new tripower. It runs perfect until I put the 400 turbo in gear, then it does not like to idle. I suspect a vac leak but that setup has so many options. Think I will try the propane tank method. However it did drive and run excellent once off idle. The secondarys sound really good and actually pulled in rather quick I thought for vac units. I could not tell much on power since traction loss was pretty much immediate. The power brakes which really did not have enough vacuum before are worse. Driveable, but a hard pedal. I also think the hood insulation is touching the air cleaner, some double side tape on the air cleaner should show some fibers if so.

I could see it in my shop. A period correct L78, hookers, flowmasters, maybe tripower, and the factory air. But not at that price.
