    Default Please help identify this intake

    I am building a twin turbo 454 in a 77 Brendella pickle tunnel. Short term plans are to get it wet carbureted break in the engine with the Jacuzzi Pump. The pump has had some custom work, but I believe it will fall short of my goals.

    The next step will be to install a dominator 12S that i bought. This project will involve rounding the keel and spooning the bottom. In this process I will be installing either the flat keel intake that I got with the pump or buying this intake. I have been told a lit about it by the guy that owns it, but I am wondering what you guys think?

    If it has a shoe on it already Id say $300? If not, $75. What are your goals for the boat? Do some research, the pump can be made to run for similar cost to replace/ trick out another pump.

    My minimum goal is 100. Making power is not a problem. Making the boat work well and safe is my greatest concern. The pump has a few obvious mods but I don't believe with all of the mods it will be safe at over 100.

    Is this intake anything special? What makes it special?

    The intake comes with two shoes and 25 shims.

    That is a low profile intake. Looks like it might be a Grimes intake, not real common.

    It's worth more than $75, that's for sure.

    He did mention the name grimes. He also mentioned 6 degree but it needs to be set at 5. I'm fairly ignorant when it comes to any jet stuff. I am a car guy betting into the boats. I have had several jets but have never tried to make one perform.

    I have the same intake in a boat. Im happy with it, but cant tell you a value. Make sure you get all the shims, ride plate and shoes if you can. Also know that its a very low profile intake, which means set back pump and make sure you can get your motor down in the hull. I also had to clean up the loader pad as it made the loader stick out of the pocket, rubbed on the entrance ramp and it sat crooked.

    Also to add you can make a berk or dom fit it no problem, but will need some blending on the ramp.
