Anyone have a Buick 231 3.8L Edelbrock intake manifold laying around?

    I would like to find a good used Edelbrock Performer #5486 intake manifold for a 1979-1987 Buick V6. Anybody have one of those? Any non-HEI distributors for the same engine? I would like to find a distributor with a smaller diameter that may make in-chassis removal possible in my Porsche 914 conversion.

    Thanks

    I think I have an Offenhauser, will that work?

    After checking my stach of parts, it appears I must have sold the Edelbrock intake. However, I do have an Offenhouser and Weind intakes, if you are interested.

    Ken,

    Could you describe the Weiand manifold by part number or name? Has it been machined for head or block machining?

    Thanks,

    The following info per your request: Weiand Smokey Yunick Intake, #7541 part number. Bolted to the intake is a Weiand brand spacer ,which has a part is 7471. Intake does not to appear to have been machined. One of the mounting ears has been repaired by a previous owner.

    Chuck, you seem to have this posted in two different threads. I responded to your other thread. I have the Edlebrock intake manifold you are asking for. On the other thread I said $200 plus shipping. I might be able to help with shipping. There are pictures on the other thread. John

    Ken-I looked up the Smokey Yunick manifold and what I saw was for a Dominator carb. That might be just a little too much for my ride. Or a lot. Are you a hard core roundy-round racer? Dang.

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    Not a street intake for sure. Only for high rpm usage.
