Think i want to save up for a kit.
But do i order for the 258 or 4.0l kit?
Is the 4.0l head swap worth the time and dollars?

Be a VERY BAD mistake to spend money with Clifford.
Just my opinion.

While you will get a more even fuel distribution with dual carbs, a single four barrel will make the same power.  Getting a nice, used single four and dropping a small 4 barrel on it will work fantastically.

hi, twin Webers would be great, unfortunately there is no proper manifold for them. A forum member here made his own, and it is fantastic, but it is custom. Look closely at the Clifford manifold, it is a twin 4bbl with adapters. Why not try a single Weber 38/38 first? good luck, gz

Every Clifford intake uses a adapter.

It's always been the same intakes,  with a different adapter plate if you chose to go 2 bbl or 4 bbl,  but in this case 2x2bbl,  or 2x4bbl.

Before you make a decision on buying from Clifford you would be advised to check around on the various forums about their recent reputation.

Twin carbs will work, and the Clifford intake is as good as any other twin carb intake. Personally, I'd use three sidedraft Webers if I really wanted to be impressive. Look for posts in the six cylinder area by member NOSIGMA. He put three sidedrafts on a 232 in a 65 or so American convertible. Rear carb is tight -- had to make some mods to get an air filter on with power brakes.

The Webers in general are really adjustable and work well once tuned. Different than what most are used to. You need a tuning manual and a tuning jet kit, but worth the effort according to everyone I've talked to (I haven't done it myself). TomJ on here has done it and praises the Webers.

Moneywise, you'd be better off with a single four. The Clifford and the Offenhauser intakes are great. I'd use an Offy Dual Port for street performance and a 390-450 cfm carb (390 for stock or mild cam, 450 for a bit more cam, and even a 500-600 for a race motor). A pair of the smallest Motorcraft 2100s might be good, but the Webers would probably be a better choice. Use a pair of 32/36, maybe? Two 38s will probably be a bit large unless it's a full on race motor. A single 38 is a good performance choice for a mild 258. Weber says the 32/36 will increase performance on the 258, but that's when replacing the 1V carb. A pair ought to be nice!

How hard are the 4bbl intakes to find? And are they a direct bold on for an early 70's 258?

They are readily available; new or used.
