    I have 300ci 2bbl out of a '66 Skylark and I am looking to convert to 4bbl - looking for a manifold.
    Thanks for checking - Mike

    Good luck with your search, they are rare and hard to find. When you do come across one it's going to set you back $250-$350. Then you have to address what carb to use, another few hundred $$.

    Save your money and spend it making sure your engine is in top notch condition first. Things like a really good tuneup will produce much more power and driveability than just sticking on a four barrel.

    I went the four barrel route years ago and then spent a lot of time and money trying to get it all sorted out. Remember, if you have an automatic, you will have to either source a correct AFB or modify an Edelbrock if you want to keep the kickdown function of the transmission. You will need a different aircleaner too.

    Don't waste money on headers either, the cast iron manifolds are thought to flow very well as is.

    Or spend the money on a good running 350 engine or convert to a turbo 350 transmission to get a little more driveability.

    Just the opinion of somebody who has been there and done that.

    My plans are to use this engine in a Non-Buick project so I am in need of just a manifold. I have several carbs and the other pieces I cant use. But shoot me a price if you will - my apologies in advance if it's more than my budget.

    my apologies - I should have updated this. I ended up getting the manifold from SoftTop65, but 197064buickspec had one also - he may still have it ...

    Do you still have the 1965 300 cid 4v cast iron manifold? Just dbl checking but this will fit a 1967 300 cid motor, right? Thx

    Should have mentioned that I'm looking for correct carb as well...
