331 Intake Help


I have a 331 with the 6x2 Weiand intake and Stromburgs. I hate it. Never stays in tune. I want to convert to the Holley EFI, single TBI system. I noticed my heads do not have the coolant fittings. They run to the intake. What intake should I use? Do you make an intake with the water fittings?

Check out Hot Heads pt # 21409 from that box you can feed into the HH manifold with heater hose and adapt a large rad hose .

Just noticed these replies. The car sat for a while, so maybe the carbs need a rebuild/cleaning. Looks like only the center two actually provide induction. There are no chokes at all. It is very hard to start and stalls constantly. When it does warm up, the idle is so high, it slams into gear. I just think a new TBI system would be a lot better....not as cool looking for sure.

If you mean the front & rear carbs are blocked off, 2 strombergs is probably too little carb. The 2 center carbs should have chokes working, the outer ones don't. Set it up so the middle one work non-progressive & the outer ones progressive.

Except for the Hot Heads Weber intake, all other Hot Heads intakes have a 1/2"NPT hole between the first and second port into the water jacket so you can run hoses to the remote thermostat block, then to the radiator. Hope this helps, Bob
