    That is a manifold for an early sixties 413 mopar. There is no such manifold for a chevy.

    Agreed! You could build one... or maybe go with a short crossram, which was made by a few companies, including Chevy who offered them for the Z28.

    Google "chevy cross ram".. then click on images.

    I remember those well. I don't think you could walk into a speed shop in the late 60s-early 70s and NOT see a set hanging on the wall for $50-100 and they couldn't give them away.

    I had a friend and customer who had a 1960 300F that those were standard on that I worked on from time to time. Let me 'splain about changing valkv

    They are a neat setup and do work reasonably well when properly set up.

    Let me 'splain about changing valve cover gaskets, you earn every penny of the 8 hours the flat rate manual says it takes to change them.

    to be honest ,they look cool but that style wasnt the greatest setup.....the heat from the engine kept the extra long runners hot seeing that they crossed over the block. robbed lots of HP for nothing by keeping the fuel hot instead of cool.
    you may want to look at something like this for Chevy

    Complete Weber SideDraft Cross Ram Set up for Chevy Small Block | eBay

    My 2 cents
    Never take life too serious.....You wont make it out alive

    Dan the long ram setutps were never really developed for HP, but rather torque. Keep in mind the factory hot rod they were standard equipment on (the letter series Chrysler 300) were over 4000 pound land barges. The numbers were pretty respectable for the time, and even today..the 375 HP version made 495 Ft Lbs of torque at 2800 RPM.

    Here's an article on the manifolds theory with an interesting torque chart.

    From personal experience, I can also tell you that these manifolds do not work well when until they are fully warmed up as the fuel tends to fall out of suspension and puddle.

    In about 64 I was working at a gas station and a 300 C (maybe C) Chrysler came in for gas. When I opened the hood to check the oil (remember when gas stations did that? ) a long ram setup like that was staring at me. I thought it was the coolest thing.
