There will soon be available (January 2009) a dual plane, 4BBL, cast aluminum intake manifold for the DeSoto 276 and 291 Hemi's. Take a look at vintagev8s.com .

I just saw one that WWW.vintage v8.com is making.Also,Tom Waters can convert a 2bbl. to a 4bbl,like Sonny at RACING STUDEBAKERS does.

Do you have any more information on the 2 brl to 4 brl conversion? Hows about some contact information for Mr. Waters? Thanks Roland

Just go down towards the bottom of the forum page and look for the TR Waters Early Hemi Parts forum! :D

I would kinda like to hear the flow characteristics on these converted intakes. Or maybe a few numbers from a dyno pull with a 2 bbl. intake, a 4 bbl. intake and a converted 2 to 4 bbl. intake. I have removed several 4 bbl. setups on street driven trucks and EVERY ONE had better throttle response, idle quality , and improved fuel mileage with the 2 bbl. I had a new 283/4 speed powered 65 Chevy II that I tried a 4 bbl., two 4 bbls, and 3 twos on and the stock setup worked best. A solid lifter 327 got rid of that problem. Blew the whole thing to pieces. I know the 4 bbl. is so GREAT looking and will under certain higher RPM conditions outperform its smaller counterpart , but even knowing that I can't stand the thought of such a wimpy piece on a mighty hemi . SO I am putting an Enderle injector hat and 8-71 on my street 392 that's going in my Anglia. Now we are talking!!!!!!!!! AMEN Buddy
