Car Model: 1972 Plymouth Valiant
I am in college and building a turbo 225 slant six for my 1972 Plymouth Valiant. It is almost ready to hit the road but I can't find a 2 barrel intake and carburetor that is in my budget. I'd like to stay below $300 for everything since I'm also building a Jeep and don't have a huge budget. I talked to my uncle and he said that a Holley 500 cfm converted to blow through would be my best option. I'm just seeing if anybody on here has the parts that I need before I try to find one elsewhere. Thanks.

I can't help with finding those parts but I question whether a big carburetor on a blow through system is even a good idea. You can blow through a 1 barrel, make tons of power and have a motor that is much more tractable and controllable for street driving. Also, tuning a blow through 4-barrel will be a long complicated process.

Some people have had good results with the Holley 350. I would look for an Offenhauser 4v manifold and build a 2v adapter. Unfortunately that combination would be more than your $300 budget. I believe there is an article in the article section for converting a 1v manifold to a 2v manifold. Warning, some welding required.

I have a cast iron 2 barrel intake in Oregon.

Where on the planet are you?

The shipping weight might be cost prohibitive.

The intake manifold will ship for $18.30 in a USPS flat rate “board game” box.
