intake ports to head ports??
« on: January 18, 2012, 05:03:37 PM »
So I'm looking at hot rodding the little 2.3L 4 banger in my pinto wagon.  I was looking at an Esslinger racing head and an offenhauser manifold.  These two have different ports...the offenhauser has dual port oval shaped and the Esslinger is the D-port.  Can I bolt these together or will it not work because they have different ports?  The other option would be Esslinger's cast iron D-port head.  How good is the Esslinger head?  How is it vs the Offenhauser?  Thanks!

Only the Esslinger intake will fit the Esslinger head. All others are not even close.
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.
