new intake manifold experiment:by MAD

I just wanted to share a little about some of the stuff I do when I'm bored at work. I just wanted to try something new to see how hard it would be to do and if it could be done. I by no means think that this intake would work better than the ones from absolute, or go go. Just something I wanted to try, and put on the truck, since I think alot of the members know I like to think out of the box.

What if I took a 6.4 manifold and converted to a 6.0 manifold. I know the stock 6.4 flows more than the 6.0 stocker so why not? The runners of the 6.4 manifolds are basically about 1/4 thick or less, and the runners on the 6.0 are at least 2 inches thick. So now there is almost no runner at all and bam into the head ports, also the intake of the 6.4 holds more volume. So should be a fun experiment. Here's some pictures of the work so far, might have it done in a week or two depending on how busy I get at work.

Give me your opinions on the project if you think yes it would work or no. I'm doing it anyway but I like to hear everyone input, and why on either way.

It will work, seen it done before. Your the first I've seen to cut off the 6.0 alt bracket and tig onto the 6.4, most go with the lower dual alt bracket on the ambulance package.

Looks like you'll need to make a intake elbow and a custom cold side CAC pipe then.

We could just add a 6.0 alternator bracket to the 6.4 fully machined intakes that we make for the pulling trucks.
