In response to your comment, I think if I were you, I would shelve that 2X4 cast iron Poly intake for the time being, and take the route that Daven outlined for you. As Daven said, it's hard to say what a machine shop would charge you for repairing it, based on the fact that prices vary from shop to shop/region to region. However, getting a ball park price from at least three well qualified machine shops in your area wouldn't hurt either. On the other hand, I 'm positive there would be someone out there that would be glad to scoop up that intake, even if it does have a few strikes against it. Selling it is always an option, in order to finance the purchase of the Weiand aluminum intake that Daven linked you to. However, based on the rarity of them, I would put it away for the time being, and wait for the best opportune time to have it repaired. I agree totally with what Daven said. The single 4bbl route would be a lot more user friendly, than the notoriously finicky 2X4 set-up, without compromising any horsepower. Just ask me, I'm constantly tweeking the carbs on my 318 Poly just to keep it running smoothly, as it has the Fury V800 option. It sure looks good though, and has raised more than a few eyebrows from the Chevy camp. Puts a smile on my face everytime.LOL. Good luck...Bill
