Default Cobra Jet Oval port Intake manifold

Does anyone know of an aftermarket aluminum intake manifold that is port matched for Cobra Jet heads that isn't a high rise so it will fit under my hood. I had a Victor 460 that came with the engine and I switched it with a Torker II. Very noticeable difference performance wise. I'd like to get some of that back. I'm not interested in grinding 6 pounds of aluminum nor modifying the hood, so please lets not go there.

Edelbrock Super Victor intake. Port matched out of the box.

Have one on my Z series FRPP 514 Crate motor now, clears hood without issue (it's DARN close).

NOTE : Will be puling this off shortly for the dual quad setup I have on the workshop bench.

I port matched the Torker II for $250. Significant gains with horsepower and torque. Worth it if you kind find someone to do it for you.

As I mentioned in my previous post a high rise won't help due to hood clearance.

Hey Purple Venom I was hoping someone had reworked a Torker II and chime in. I was afraid I'd hear "there isn't much of a difference" Glad to hear of the gains. I've done quite a bit of research and have had no luck. I've done port matching in the past and now that it's 100 degrees here in Az and getting too hot to drive. I may give myself some busy work and grind on my Torker II. My old Super Victor fits with the hood closed, just no room for an air cleaner. Definitely miss the throttle response and pull on that intake.
You would think with so many big block Cobras with Cobra Jet/Oval port style aluminum heads and hood clearance issues that OL' Vic Edelbrock himself would be making a port matched medium rise intake.

The two ports on the right he had just started on. The two on the left, not touched. See the scribe mark? That is how much material is being removed off the top of the runner to match up to the heads. About 5/16".


Here are the head ports


Below is the difference. I'll qualify this and say I did swap Carb's to a 750 QuickFuel plus the port matching.
