New here - ish
Jake from Adelaide, Australia.
Have a 65 and a 62 parts car.
I'm thinking about putting an MGB intake manifold and extractors on my E1 motor, everything lines up. Only difference being the stock E1 intake is 1"1/4 and the MGB intake is 1"1/2. I have removed the head from a spare E1 motor i have and the actual size of the intake port on the head is 1"3/8 so if i were to 'gasket match' or port it myself i would only have to remove 1/8 of material from the head.
Is there any reason why this wont work? (car is right hand drive so i don't have to worry about clearance of the steering column/master cyllinders etc) Will it ever run even close to a little bit right?
I'm not chasing an increase in power - more the aesthetic and sound i'm looking to improve.
Will upload pics of the manifolds for comparison and the car this evening.
