B-A Performance Street Boss Intake Manifold NOS Really!
« on: September 04, 2019, 03:30:19 pm »
I have an NOS intake manifold from B-A Performance . Its the Street Boss 302 version. All of us here know this is for making a mock Boss engine. It allows the use of regular cleveland heads on a  SBF block. I cannot find a scratch anywhere indicating it has ever been installed. No pitting at the thermostat mounting area either.   Now for the pictures issue. I cannot figure out how to post them like we used to so if you want some I can send to a phone number or e-mail. Whichever you prefer. Computers give me heartburn, sigh !!   Price is $400.00   Thanks, Ed Raver 505-250-5798.  I am located just East of Albuquerque.

It would be fun to see a dyno comparison between this intake, Edelbrock Street BOSS and the factory B2 intake.

I thought the B-A intake was designed to use 351c 2V heads. Unless one is using the Aussie closed chamber 351C 2V heads and both engines had the same compression ratio it wouldn't be much of a apples to apples comparison.

    Correct!

    We were dealers for BA Performance back then, and these units where marketed for the as magazine defined and rage created "Bogus-Boss" applications of the period.        ::)

I had this discussion with Randy about the Street BOSS intakes. They are designed for the smaller ports of the 2V heads but will seal on 4V heads as well. Due to the smaller runner passages of them velocity will be increased thus providing increased performance. As a benefit the smaller port of the intake will provide a natural dam for reversion. John Slack recently had great success with the Edelbrock version with aluminum heads producing more than 525 HP. As a note though, the BA version most resembles the factory intake. The Edelbbrock has the upper and lower plains reversed.

Guys I have one of the track boss intakes that I picked up years ago at Iola. It is the single plane version and I plan to use it in a project someday, is there any gain or loss as opposed to the dual plane? I know the last mock boss I drove didn’t come alive till about 3000 rpm, and that one had a dual plane intake i believe it was the factory intake from 69.

     But, are the intake runners actually "smaller", or is just the presentation at the flange to cylinder head smaller for the 2V intention, and the rest relatively generous;........ look again.    ;)

     In the period, these the BA units filled a niche, and were judged as O.K. performers, but nothing to write home about.         ::)

     And yes, a step created by the reduced area of the intake flange versus the larger cylinder head port area does offer dampening to the air flow reversionary effect of the airflow column in the induction tract, but is this all good?          ???          I think the answer may be:  it depends.        ;)
