When it was all said and done, I used a very light spray oil to "seal" it to help keep it nice and clean and not stain up tight away.

As already mentioned, your presentation was very informative, descriptive, and quite easy to understand for the "first timers" and also for the rest of us. You derserve an A+ A+ and an A+.

You might also think about this techinique; In the intake ports I usually put aerosol shaving cream(gilettee-barbasol...) to keep some minor foreign object(carbon chunk etc...) from accidentally falling onto the gasket that inevitably was missed & stayed lodged in the intake & won't fall out until you put the intake on(and you didn't see it). It will blow out on the first sign of compression, Plus your exhaust will smell good for the first few seconds!!!

Re: Intake Swap on a 302

Did you notice much of an increase in power with the new intake and carb?

The difference was night and day. More over all power and much better throttle response and power through out the entire RPM range.

I don't pull the distributor when changing a SBF intake. Saves a lot of time.

Re: Intake Swap on a 302

Nice write up, I find that using studs instead of bolts to secure the intake, such as the intake stud kit for ARP is a sure way to insure your intake goes on with no drama.
The ARP intake stud kit comes with nice black flat washers too, which as mentioned above, no matter if you use bolts or studs, you should always use washers to spread the load.
