Thread: Economy intake

  1. #1

    Default Economy intake

    I have a stock engined 1955 287ci Star Chief w/Carter WCFB carb. Later Pontiac went to the Quadrajet, would changing to a quadrajet help. In the 70's there were lots of economy manifolds out there, were there any for this engine?

    From POCI Tech Advisor Rick Gonser:

    I have a stock engined 1955 287ci Star Chief w/Carter WCFB carb. Later Pontiac
    went to the Quadrajet, would changing to a quadrajet help.

    NO. The WCFB is correctly sized for a 287 CID engine. A Rochester QuadraJet
    would be way too large for an early engine...


    In the 70's there were lots of economy manifolds out there, were there any for this engine?

    NO. Aftermarket manifolds for 1955-60 heads and reverse-flow water were only offered
    in 3x2 or 2x4 configurations. Later intakes are available for 1965-79 cyl heads and feature
    standard-flow watering...
