    Really? That's the whole freaking point of a sheetmetal intake manifold- you can make just one, lol. You dont need a whole cast/die, etc.

    I'm going to venture a guess that he was limited by airflow and/or valvetrain limitations on a pushrod engine before the bottom end.

    Well, the number of pistons doesn't have much to do with brake fluid temps. Heck, I'd bet it increases the temp (more surface area). General rule of thumb is that you'll have a bigger pad with a 6...
