4 barrel intake for 1978 301 engine

Recommended Posts

Is there a four barrel intake that Pontiac made for the 301 cubic inch V8? I’ve got a 1978 Pontiac Bonneville Brougham four door sedan and was wondering if there was a factory 4 barrel intake. I still have the 2 barrel intake but would like to get more power out of this little engine as much as possible

That is correct - Pontiac did make a 4-barrel intake for the 301 for the Trans Ams and Turbo Trans Ams but you have to use the one specific to the 301 or 265 V8s and not one for the more common 326-455 engine family. The 265/301 has a shorter deck height and a number of other changes that were made to save weight and be more fuel efficient after the 70s Arab Oil Embargo. As a result, a regular 4-bbl intake won't fit properly.
