351 C Tripower
#1
I have some shots of the completed install but I need to go find them.

Here is a pic of my 351C tripower intake manifold.

Looks like it's going to be a screamer. What carbs are youj using?

Will looks good. Where did you ever find a tripower set up for a cleaveland?

Ebay. 1999 I think, maybe it was 2000. It had never been mounted. At the time I had 2v heads, headers and a comp 9000. To get the manifold to work I had to go with 4v heads, headers and a small cap distributor (closer to stock size). I bid at the last moment. Had three computers, one on dial up, ready to go. I bid high and hit the reserve price.

The carbs are what was used on Corvettes and Mopar back in the day. You can see from the pic that the middle/back carbs are mounted really close to each other. This means I can't use 'mechanical' linkage since they have meter blocks. I had to use vacuum outboard carbs. It's a 350 cfm center and 500 on each outboard (rated at 2bbl flow which is different than 4bbl).

It runs pretty good. Not 'the best' performance set up as I don't pull enough RPM's to justify the CFM's but it has a certain 'cool' factor.

Please post pics of the complete install. Who makes that intake and how does your AC hold up to Arizona heat?

The pictures are on a different hard drive (currently off line) but I was looking at some pics on my PS3 and found these two:


This is with the air cleaners on. They are from Obrians Trucker.

Here is with the air cleaners off. You can see how close they are together and why I had to go with the small cap distributor.

I finally ditched the A/C in the car. Once it was no longer my daily driver it wasn't necessary. The A/C worked well except the Convertible doesn't seal that well so once I started moving again all of the cool air was replaced with warm air. Now I pretty much only drive on nice days and pretty much always with the top down. There were some times where I would cruize with the top down and the A/C on.

I've never seen nor heard of three deuces on a 351. That is awesome! Even with 4V heads you couldn't get enough rev's, huh? I suppose it would be hard to suck 1200 CFM with a 351, with with those big ports I thought it might be possible.

Interesting... Still trying to figure out the attachment thing. I have them in my gallery if you want to see a larger picture.

The cam just doesn't allow the RPM's. Flat tappet hydro cam with an okay idle. (Comp Cams 270H). Next engine should be able to take better advantage of the available CFM. I will switch to a roller cam setup. This will allow for decent idle and the faster ramp of a roller cam means the grind can be a little more agressive. I plan to stroke it and use a Tod Buttermore Aluminum block.
