Is that too much to ask? No adaptor plates to mount a 302 tunnel ram. Just a 351W specific tunnel ram.

Haha, yeah, that thing has been in the "coming soom!" category for years. I did some searching last night and you're not the only one looking for one. The word is that they don't make a tunnel ram for 351w. I don't see why not though, considering they have them for 302 and 351c engines. You could do a sheet metal intake.

Nice little engine the 302 but why would they make a tunnel ram for it and not for its big brother?

Maybe some day I'll decide to spend a whole lot of time and money building an intake. For now I'd like to buy one off the shelf. Call me silly.

I had a sheet metal tunnel ram built by T R E in Tenn.Look at Hot Rod mag, sept, 2006. The wookmanship and quality was very good. I was able to make 816 H P from 374 cubic inches.Very trick piece. JOE SHERMAN RACING

Here's the one on ebay. There used to be a company that advertised in Super Ford that offered a 351W tunnel ram. Maybe this is one of those???

The runners sure look awfully straight up and down.

Good Luck!

At first glance it looks trick. The runners a WAY too long for any high RPM engine. It could be modified to work better. I have some other One of a kind manifolds that will never work correctly. JOE SHERMAN RACING

I saw that too.. Those are awefully long runners though. I think I'll just make my own over the winter.

To be honest, if you think of the width of the carb pad (unless it's dual dominators, but that doesn't look like a dominator flange pattern to me), that intake's nowhere near wide enough for a 351. That's a 302 tunnel ram I'm 99% sure. Maybe someone should pay the 700+$ and buy it to see =p.

Theres a lot of things I could do once I win the lotto. I just spent the better part of a day making a 6 pinion planetary for a C-4 . I can buy those too but its a lot cheaper to make one. I can make a manifold. It'll just take a few months.
