I use a 4500 TB with the adapter plate and it fits fine. I have a big cowl hood though.

thanks guys. yea i have a 4" cowl too, so thats not a problem. Im going to hack the rest of the wiper cowl out, and it should be good. Next, im pulling the motor to get the car to a chasis shop to do the 12 cage, chasis, and suspension work. while thats being dont ill figure out the nitrous set up. I guess im going to go with the Big Shot 2 stage set up. ill update with pics as it goes. Im also takeig everything i can out of the car to getthe weight down. wish me luck. iv had this car for 9 years and it has went from dd to everything in between that and what is becoming. cant wait to see some single didgets finally

If you have a good local fab guy, ya could have the 4150 flabge milled off the intake, have the 4500 welded onto it, and then just port the opening to smooth it back out.

With a bridgeport, someone that's good at welding alum, and a little work you can put a 4500 on just about any intake.

I've already seen 2 done this way, so I know it will work

does sound like a great idea, but im not sure of anyone around me i would trust to do it. i might have to look around or possibly just ship it out to have it done.

I'd look into it. All someone has to do is put the intake on a bridgeport, have the 4500 flange in hand, notch the intake (milling the old one off pretty much) for the 4500 flange, then weld it on the inside and outside.

Report it a little bit to smooth where it was welded, and you're good to go.

Probably can call LME I see you had them build the motor...they probably can do it I'd think, if not they for sure have someone that can.

I've though about doing that. I saw an accufab 4500 on here for less than I could get a 4150 TB new so I was considering it. The only thing that held me up was the fact that I wasn't sure if the 4500 had a larger diameter than the 4150 and the fact of trying to fit a hat on it. I would think that it is as the 4500 has 2.25 plates versus the 4150's 1.75 plates.

I'm still considering it, but need to figure out a few facts first. My super vic and fuel rails should be on their way to my house now so it is getting down to decision time.

OK, I just got my super vic in the mail today. For some odd reason my super vic has no provisions for intke manifold gaskets. I reaad the directions and it says you have to use a specific intaake gasket, but there's no spot for them. Thoughts? I'll post a picture tomorrow.

A carbed intake and carb/carb style TB do not use an o-ring to seal like our factory TBs they just use a standard flat cork/rubber/paper gasket sandwiched in between the tb and intake. with it being a 4500series TB that gasket may need to be ordered form jegs/summit. a regular 4150 gasket can be had at most any parts store.

EDIT, nevermind I read your post too fast, your asking about the intake port gaskets, not sure what to tell you, I thought they were machined with a groove for the o rings.

That's crazy. My vic Jr has the intake gasket flanges. Wonder why they changed with the Super Vic?

When I bought it that is what I was expecting, but upon seeing it I was slightly shocked to not see the machined grooves. For some odd reason it doesn't have them. It says, "Manifold #28095 (super vic) uses a conventional style gasket, fel-pro #1312-3".

Did you guys try the fel pro gaasket listed above in the directions? If so why did you end up making your own?

They had cracking issues with the O-ring style and switched to a paper style in the begining of the year.
