Nice! They must be custom, but they don't look like it. If they are not just "1-off"s, I might be interested in one of the 1x4 for my Panther (presently fitted with 2x4 Caribbean).

They're modified big block Mopar with a 10-degree adapter plate on each side.

The Mopar uses a 70-degree intake port angle versus the Packard's 90-degree and the Packard pairs of ports are about 1/2" farther apart than the Mopar.

Interesting and well done. I looked at the Mopar intakes at one time before I scored the 2x4 Caribbean.

Back in the early 1970s My H-O Racing partner and I built a 2x4 "Tunnel Ram" intake for our Pontiac high-rpm race engine. It was modified essentially the same as you described, i.e., changed the head entry angle and interdistance, but we had to "slice & dice" it because the SBC intake we started with had #1 (D-side) cylinder forward-most in the block and Pontiac has the #2 (P-side) cylinder forward-most.

Doing it that way definitely works! Good luck!

This intake started as a Mopar Torquer, cut into four pieces, aligned with the Packard ports, welded back together, the top milled flat, a plate welded on for the blower mount pad.

Yup, exactly what we did with the Chebby intake on the Pontiac.

Old "hot rod" solutions never die.

The last one of the custom built Latham axial flow superchargers, with a custom-fabricated drive system. Kids, don't try this at home. The manifold, injection and supercharger system, I don't wanna know how much it cost, but there are weeks of custom work there.

That's slick! Please post more pix of the S/C setup.

What are the EMC rules regarding S/C or T/C? For that matter, do you have a link to the EMC rules for the class in which the Packard V-8 will be competing?
