INTAKE MANIFOLDS, GASKETS AND COMPONENTS
Intake manifolds distribute the air/fuel mixture to the appropriate cylinders. Intake manifold design is geared toward the end usage, whether that is a street performance engine or an all-out competition application. The wide range of Chevrolet Performance intake manifolds means there is an ideal manifold for your every need. There are cast-iron and aluminum intake manifolds for carbureted and fuel injected applications. Chevrolet Performance intake manifolds were designed specifically for GM engines, so you know they will deliver O.E. performance.
Valley Plate Assembly
• Universal aluminum valley plate is designed for use with 18° cylinder heads
• Can be used with dedicated 2-piece manifold spiders, existing 1-piece intake manifolds which have been properly machined for use as a dry manifold, or fabricated manifold designs
• Valley plate has cast-in integral passages to equalize coolant flow from the front and the rear of the cylinder heads
• Fits heads dated June 1996 and later
NOTE: Important information about gasket matching: Gasket flanges are machined to provide the proper port alignment with standard runner locations. Runners in heads and manifold must be matched by engine builder. Often, the gasket will line up with the top of the port so removal is required at the bottom of the port. Gaskets that can be used with this manifold are: Fel-Pro® P/N 1205 and P/N 1206, and Mr. Gasket® P/N 102. Always match the gasket to the cylinder head you plan to use to ensure a correct fit.
