to fit a 350 you need a new manifold, as there are clearance problems when trying to use an adapter plate.


there is more power in the manifold then there is in a carby upgrade anyway.

Try redline if they're still around, plus 350cfm is quite enough for a mild 4.1

mate, check this out, it has alot of different manifolds available.
I've got a triple SU lynx manifold like item D2165
and a CAIN manifold with a Holley carb like item CF612.

As a 4barrel you can use the CF614, they update the list when they get new stocks in, so check back if you want the redline manifold specifically, or ask them as they may be able to source one.

a 350 needs a manifold to suit a 2barrel
a 465 needs a manifold to suit a 4barrel.


and redline is a brand, which you should be able to have ordered in by most parts shops, or you can try ebay. thats where i got all my various manifolds and carby's from.

Good find mate, all that time I thought redline shut down. saw a XD ute at the wreakers with a XF front end for $2000. 4.1 on gas with a c4 tranny. sitting low on 12 slotters and a few rust here and there.....hmmmm project comes to mind but the asking price was far fetched!

Oh one thing, their ford 6 redline manifolds are mostly iron heads, alloy manifolds are hard to come by by the way so ask them what other options they have.
