Ran across an old Edlebrock torquer R-2 intake manifold yesterday (carb sits at angle)...This particular one was for a big block chevy... Was just curious if they made those for a Pontiac application...??

Was out with one of my friends riding our motorcycles.....stopped at one of his buddies place...Had an old NASCAR modified... Methanol burning big block Chevy race engine that was built in the late 60s early 70s..(the cool factor was off the chart)..anyway the carburetor sat at about a 45 degree angle on top of the intake manifold rather than straight...Was also running a magneto instead of a regular dual point distributor like in alot of race applications....

Was kinda paranoid about snapping photos of someone's stuff...Who I really don't know...People can get kinda upset about that here in this part of the country....

But will definitely see what I can do about getting a photo....

This bit from Pontiac Paradise covers virtually every speciality intake I know of, except for a Weiand or BDS supercharger intake. I don't see anything like what you've described. That is not to say it does not exist for a Pontiac either.

Edlebrock torquer R- 2 intake manifold...(found pic on line)

Apparently they were available for Mopar...Ford and Chevy...but not Pontiac..??   Think they Were mostly used in (circle track) hardcore racing applications...???

Thank you for your help..Was just curious... 

Will still be on the lookout though....

A pontiac torker 1 is very similar to what you are describing. They were terrible street manifolds, performance wise. They looked good...
