What ever it is it's out of my league.  If that's a repro what's a real one cost?

I saw one listed for that.  I don't know if he got it or not.

I've seen similar prices...I think Jim has asked North of $24K for his originals...like 68Zproject said, these were asking prices, who knows if anyone paid it

One thing that has helped to costs on these parts come down is the availability of reproduction X-rams and carbs.  Many are happy with the reissues and it's something that many can afford.  We are endorsing the X-rams made in AZ.  They are the best of three reproductions IMO.

Happy New Year,

Since the "original GM crossrams" were not original to the Z/28, why would anyone care whether is it an "original GM crossram"or a repro? Either way, the setup on the car is not original. Only thing missing from this stuff  these days is a conspiracy theory. But then again, I guess there is one with regards to the Chevrolet documentation that some believe supposedly still exists in some Michigan secret vault.

I agree with Jimmy, why does someone want a crossram when the factory did not install them.  I also heard they are not worth a flip for the street.  IMO   :)

I agree 100%.  That's why I made this issue part of the ECL code chapter in my 1969 Camaro fact book.  15 years ago, if you were entering in a car show, X-ram cars were allowed in the stock class and if a car had a cross ram, they usually won 1st place.

While I agree that crossram-equipped cars are not "original" and therefore, not appropriate for judging in stock classes, they are fun on the street.  The intake by itself would probably kill the 302's performance, but with a "140" cam, headers and 4.10 gears, the crossram intake is not much more tempermental than a single four barrel 302, and it definitely adds power.  They also draw a crowd when the hood is up.  Just my two cents worth.  Tex T.
