Default Weiand Team G SBC Intake

Weiand makes 3 Team G's as far as I can tell for Gen 1 SBC; low rise, part # 7530, 3/4" taller part # 7532, and a 2" taller, part # 7531. I wish to use one of these (2" if I can) and retain the stock hood on my 1980. Any had experiences? Have a used on for sale?

I have the Team G air gap 7530 low rise. I am able to run a 4" tall air filter with a 1-3/4" drop base under my stock '76 hood. I only use a paper carb to intake gasket. Heat has not been an issue with the Holley Street HP 650 DP.

I have a 69 small block in my car, with G tema 7530, 40mm drop down base, 3" K/N filter, K/N lid and EFI
And I have 3-4mm to "spare/play with" :- ) when the hood is closed.
BUT I've made small mods to the base, to get it all the way down.

What kind of heads do you have and the reason for needing the taller one. I use a 4 hole wood thermal spacer which is a better idea than just a taller plenum

Great responses. Thanks very much. The pics were awesome! The manifold is going on my Hardcore 454 SBC.

I've been away on vacation, but what kind of heads does that 454 have? Port matching is important. My smaller AFR 210 heads can use the Team G. My 227 cc have much larger runners and I had to buy the bigger port single plane Motown. At the time it was one of the best for big ci higher rpm SBC's I never felt like it was lacking air for my 434 Hardcore Motown block sbc

You want the biggest CFM of flow. Especially for a 454 . the bigger the CFM the less cam you need. I considered the AFR 235 and 245 cc on my Hard core 427. I ran my original 383 with Dart 227 cc and later down sized to AFR 210 cc which flow over 300 cfm. You have to compare them to BBC of the same CI Where even oval ports are 270 cc and the big HP are over 300 cc

I run the 7530 on a pretty hot 406 with Dart 200 Pro 1 heads......it has an open 1/2" wood spacer. The choice was made after much research....this is the best performing short open manifold.......the Victor Jr. requires work to match it. I have seen dyno results of the 2" tall manifold and the gain is negligible....this is due to the runners being kinda small......the runners flow what they flow. I recommend the Team G highly. The intake will support 530 horsepower or so......

If you get the shorter manifold then you can always add spacers if desired. I don't believe there is any difference to the shape of the actual manifold and runners, the taller manifolds just have a taller plenum.

I got the Team G 7532. This is the one that is raised 3/4". Got the engine home earlier this week. Will be checking how much I'll have to do to match up the ports. Thanks for the responses and pix!
