Tom..........I fixed the links for you.

The cheapest route to a AMC 6 barrel intake is the Indy Mod Man. 

Or you have to go custom and custom isnt cheap.  I think if you send Hogan a performer or other cheap intake they can build off the base and save you some money.  Has been a few years since I spoke with them about it.

I see $3500 cross rams so $4000 for custom built intake.....designed for your exact motor.....doesnt seem that ridiculous to me.

I think they need a new potato to take pictures with LOL

It looks WAY cooler than I though it would with the 3x Holley's tho Clap

Is that a Hogan intake?

^If yes I bet it goes as good as it looks! Star

I would bet real money that a properly designed Hogan 3x2 intake would outperform an original Crossram as well!

Coolness factor is hard to weigh,
so retaining resale value would be the only sure place I can see a Crossram beating a custom 3x2 intake in the future.

I have a TRACO 2-4Bbl AMC manifold that I'm hoping to put on a 390-68 AMX.  I assume these manifolds were meant for Carter/Edelbrock carburetors.  Is this right??
Also, there is a threaded hole in the back about where the Heater Control Valve would normally be.  Is this used for some sort of Crankcase Ventilation??
Any other info would be helpful.
Thanks!!!

I have photos but can't figure out how to paste.

On other forum that is pretty defunct now there was a guy who went by the name HILLBILLYBOB.  He had a TRACO 2x4 intake on his AMX road racer.

Does yours have a removable top?
