Intake

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

Today I found an aftermarket intake manifold that is promised to fit under the Trans Am shaker scoop without any modifications.  It’s called a Tomahawk intake and developed by a company called Pacific Performance Racing.

Looks like the only type currently in production is a single-plane.  Many other aftermarket intakes position the shaker slightly different than stock.  For example, Edelbrock’s Performer series cause the carburetor to sit slightly lower and further rearward.  The height can be fixed with a spacer plate and the 1/4″ rearward bias is not enough for interference according to an article on High Performance Pontiac’s website.  Not sure how the Tomahawk perfoms but will keep researching and update my findings.
