    Hello Dave. Quick question if you have time. I am getting a set of used Ford Motorsport A29 Heads and am using a Torker II 460 Intake for hood clearance. Do you think I need to port match the Intake and if so, What Gasket should I use for the process.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would most likely use a Holley 950HP or a 780(down leg booster 750) I think either model would work very well especially the 750 because you could use a vacuum secondary version.

    I think that would probably be a good place to start, yes.
