The top picture is not a match for the other three.  Totally different base in the last three.


Jon,
Excellent eyes! Yes, those are two different intakes..However, the only differences are on the water/thermostat (or lack of one) outlets. Essentially, there was a revision casting change between the two.

Forgot to mention the front china wall was redesigned for the improved runners also.

I know I am late to the game, I just thought I would share a few pictures of my 68 Blip Top.  This puppy has been verified,  and documented by Wayne Guinn.

Nice piece, and its been verified!
The only thing that 'I' see that hinders performance, and flow are the 'blips'. This, among other designs are why the 1969 versions are different...or are they?

Looks good. Cross Boss the "blip" was not performance related, only ties into the detail of production time frames.

Thanks guys. I know when I found this Xram,  I had to have it.  It is dated one month before my car. Now I got to find the Holleys to put on it. Lol

The carbs can be even harder to locate than the Manifold. Tom Cudeyro has a knack for locating them though.

Anyone seen this AMC V8 Traco 2x4 Intake Manifold before ?
Guess technically it would not be considered a crossram.

After some reflection, I would call this intake similar to a Bud Moore's 'Mini Plenum' This one could possibly work better(?). It's design is a small plenum, very short runner design. Kinda like a compact under the hood version of a tunnel ram. Would be interesting to see a dyno pull on this one...!

Also, as a consideration, switch the top cover for one fitted for an Autolite Inline carb...hmmm. That would be a neat conversation piece!
