Rambler V8 Intake Manifold Ideas
4bbl intake manifold
Shown below is a comparison of the Hilborn SB Chevy and Rambler V8 intake manifolds. The SB Chevy (350) intake appears to be a good candidate for ADAPTING to the Rambler V8 engine. The SBC intake is physically narrower than the Rambler intake and is slightly shorter. Both the SBC and Rambler intakes share a near-perfect port size and pairing, so the manifold adapters should work well, mating the "Brand-X Chevy" intake to the Rambler V8 cylinder heads.
Another difference between the two intakes are their mounting face angles. The Rambler measures 45-degrees each side, totalling 90-degrees, while the SB Chevy measures 35-degrees for a total angle of 110-degrees. These angle differences do complicate the fabrication of an adapter since flat stock can't be used (like was done on the AMC-to-Rambler intake adapters).
