Not wanting to throw more money at it and because i think the aluminum intakes commonly offered as aftermarket replacements are the source of the vapor lock problems I just shelved the Holley that Allstate built for my 413. \n\nI'll sell it for less then I paid from Allstate if you decide to junk the T-Quad. I've never run one but I know they are mostly disliked by many.
\nJust the opposite. Cast iron holds heat which is what boils the gas after you shut it off and also the after market manifolds don't have heat risers so even less chance. The Holley spreadbore worked great till the day I sold it.\nThe spreadbore will work fine on a factory manifold. You need a 17$ adaptor plate made by Mr. Gasket. Summit sells them.
