You can use the Holley Systemax2 upper on the lower of that intake. It will face the drivers side only unfortunately. They are an excellent intake.
The 351 manifold looks outwardly the same however it has piddly egg shaped ports and is therefore not a patch on the 302 version.

YEP!! Pete was comenting on 351 manifold on 351...
They are designed for TORQUE with there VERY long runners...
Some box the lower manifold on cammed up motors. Or run blower / turbo and pull good numbers.. They won't fit in Falcons, if they did they wouldn't make much power.....

I have two of these lower intakes, ports are huge compared to HO and appear in pictures to be much bigger than Exporer etc lower intakes, it is great to hear from Pete that the lowers are indeed a good flowing intake.

I had and still have stupid ideas for these intakes, as I found a good write up on the web where someone made a good top intake to fit them, lost a bit of interest because I ended up with a 351W to play with.

I have one thottle body off one of these intakes but I don't have the upper intake, I would have loved one to have a look at it.

Here's the Holley intake;
http://www.holley.com/300-72S.asp
and here is the pic of a 351 truck lower next to my 390 intake.

You can see the bolt pattern is the same as the 5.0 truck(or Holley) but the 5.0 ports are much bigger/better. You can in fact port a 351 lower out to the 5.0 size but you need to add material to the underside of the intake to be able to maintain port size to the head face. My friend Tony did this on his 351 boat engine and used the 5.0 truck upper. In a car application you would use the Holley upper but, of course the amount of work does not justify it.
The good thing about the truck intakes is that they are a true dual plane design. Inside that big plenum is a divider and you'll notice that some runners go to the top and some to the bottom of the plenum. This is why they have a dual throat t-body. If you follow the runners you'll note that they switch plenums through 180 degrees of firing order which increases torque.

Pete.

For anyone interested in what the 5.0L truck lower intake looks like.
