Just thought Id update on my earlier post about the Edelbrock/AMC re-introduction cross-ram.
ITS HERE!

That's very cool. Glad to see you AMC guys get some fresh speed goodies.

Wow! That's pretty cool, alright. I think I'll NOT do that to my car...

Ken I don't know how realistic this price is but Heartbeat City has a original GM cross ram with original carbs. for 25k.

Well there not trading for 25k. I have seen them sell from 7k up to 14k, and claimed they were original set ups, with carbs and linkage.
This was within the last 3 years.

Generally speaking .. take 1/2 of Heartbeat's price ... to determine a closer value...  IMO.

Dragging this up from the past, New purchase I made!
My 1969 Javelin has a rare hood used by RKE on the factory AMC Javelins, now I have the intake to go with it.
Pictured are my two AMC tunnel rams, on the right is the Edelbrock base and on the left is the original TA intake.
The other two pictures are pulled from the internet showing a very similar intake on the TA Car, and from an engine that's been removed.
Now who can build Holley Dominators configured for an IR application?
 :D ;D
