About the 2x4 manifold....I am not sure if anyone reproduces these or not...I have never seen one. As far as I know the only ones on the market are the original 1957 cast iron pieces, which are few and far between...and if you can find one for sale. I am now the proud owner of a 1961 Phoenix with a poly 318 (with the silly canister oil filter.) I plan on doing a few modifications to it to make it a little more peppy. I would like to put an aluminum 4bbl manifold and a carter AFB 650(maybe bigger), Mopar Performance orange-box electronic ignition, headers, little bit of a bigger cam, a new timing assembly, and maybe a few more small things like that. It makes 230 HP with the 2bbl on it now, but I think with those mods I just listed I might be able to break the 300HP barrier. I just need to know where I can get parts. I know the electronic ignition I can get because the distributors interchange between the A and LA motors, the intake shouldn;t be too hard, headers may need to be a one-off custom job, the cam will probably be the hardest thing to come by. any leads would be great:D Jon
