It sounds like you're looking or a running, drop-in engine. If not, then you're rebuilding whatever you find, so the 2V engine shouldn't make a difference. Put your 4V manifold on the new block and get it done.
Hello ShotRod64,I have my 4v intake on a 2v engine now and the ports are way different in size. Couldn't see paying a lot for only a block basically. I'm being kinda picky this time round, first time that I don't need a running 390 to drop in so I have a choice. I don't need one super soon although I'd like to be done with swap etc before spring. At this rate it might take that long. lol
I tried to find the picture I took of the 2v vs 4v intakes when I did the last engine swap but had no luck finding it! Not sure if you can see in this pic, the difference or not from the print of my intake on the heads when FEandGoingBroke and installed a new intake gasket. I got told that I wasn't using chevron with techron also cause of the carbon build up.
Excuse the carbon! One of the pics is after all the mating surface was cleaned and you could really see the build up then! I lost a hard drive so the comparison of the 2 intakes are probably long gone. The red looking stuff is just my cell camera not seeing the colors right i guess as all the pics don't look like this nor did our eyes see this color. It's probably not as built up now as I've been out on the highway and giving it a bit more gas now and then compared to the time this was done. I decided it was a good thing!

Ooh, that 4J11 would be awesome on my car. any of the rest of that one around?
I just looked on Facebook market place in washington and there is a few 390s on there in various conditions. . . It turned into the new Craigslist basically.
And this guy has some GOOD stuff!- https://m.facebook.com/marketplace/item/426614515453864/?ref=browse_tab&search_query=390fe
Did ask my dad up there if he had one he would let go of and he laughed at me over the phone for far to long 😑 . . .
