Me and my friend have a bet. Basiclly he bet his engine against my car. It's a stupid silly bet that neither of us would collected on so it's just claim bragging rights. So here's the Question. Can you put a 289 intake on a 351w just by changing out to 289 hipo heads. If not, explain why.

so what your asking if you can put a 289 intake on a 351 with 289 heads? if you put the 289 heads on there then yes you can but if you just have 351 heads then no.

I was going to say... Think of the engine as a V ( because it is lol ) the 289/302 intakes sit lower in the V than the 351w intakes do. This makes them more narrow. changing the heads out is not going to change the spot where intake goes on any.

Now I know you could use 289/302 heads on a 351w because the intake and everything lines up, but like 460 said. Drilling is required.

Yea I already knew the answer, but it was useless going back and forth with my friend that's why I wanted to get backed up.

Thanks.
