Description:Wilson Manifolds, the leader in manifold technology continues to raise the standard with the unveiling of its patent-pending, revolutionary Composite Modular Intake Manifold for 23-degree (Gen I) standard and raised-runner small-block Chevy heads. Made out of a proprietary composite polymer for strength and durability, the new modular intake weighs just 7 pounds (10-15 pounds lighter than traditional aluminum intakes). The composite material also rejects heat better than aluminum, and combined with a valley tray that isolates the plenum and runners from hot engine oil, intake charge density and power are maximized.

The Wilson modular design incorporates a separate valley cover tray that features an internal front-to-rear water passage connecting front and rear water crossovers for more even cooling and more power. The bolt-together "Spider" (plenum & runners) can be easily separated into two halves for modification. Spiders can be easily switched from engine-to-engine, or you can fine-tune your combination with different spiders. However, this manifold is race ready out-of-the-box for all types of competition with Wilson's most advanced manifold designs and flow technology. In fact, it has shown up to a 20+hp advantage over competitor's race manifolds. It is an excellent manifold for racing classes that require a box stock production manifold.

Added features include bonded reusable plenum and valley tray gaskets, dual distributor hold-down bosses and spot drill points for nitrous installation. Versions of the new Wilson Composite Modular manifold will be available for Dominator carbs and other applications soon.
