Most notable are the all aluminum construction which makes them 38-percent lighter and totally redesigned fuel bowls that increase fuel capacity by 20-percent. The fuel bowls incorporate ten new features including internal baffling to help control fuel slosh; a fuel trough to direct fuel to the jets; and a fuel shelf which minimizes aeration and promotes more consistent metering. The metering blocks and base plates are made from 6061T6 Billet Aluminum for improved durability and true gasket sealing. The metering blocks are fully adjustable and boast a total of six upgrades. The base plate received ten new enhancements including a dedicated race-only throttle lever; stainless steel adjustable secondary throttle link for your choice of 1:1 or progressive actuation; knurled (hand adjustable) primary and secondary curb idle screws; as well as dual bolt pattern mounting holes.
The main body steps it up with an integrated idle bypass valve that allows proper throttle plate adjustment when using radical camshafts without drilling holes in the throttle plates.

Tru-Ram® Big-Block Chevy Exhaust Manifolds
Great News! Speedway Motors has expanded its line of popular Tru-Ram® exhaust manifolds to include big-block Chevy V-8s! Designed and engineered with direct oversight from “Speedy” Bill Smith, Tru-Ram® big-block Chevy manifolds are the most sophisticated and attractive big-block Chevy exhaust enhancers to be developed in decades. Manufactured from high-grade stainless steel, these manifolds give performance enthusiasts a superior alternative to junk cast iron manifolds or noisy, leak-prone tube headers. They tuck tighter against the block than other header designs, allowing much more room for frame and steering clearance. Large, smooth 17⁄8-inch primary ports, combined with 3-inch outlets, result in fantastic flow characteristics and horsepower gains. The cast stainless construction is much better at minimizing noise and retaining heat than tube-style headers. The extra-thick manifold flanges not only eliminate leaks, they also allow the manifolds to be port-matched to the gaskets and cylinder heads if desired. Manifolds are available highly polished or unpolished, and have standard three-bolt header flanges. Gaskets and stainless steel hardware are included with each pair. Tru-Ram® big-block Chevy exhaust manifolds are part of the ever-expanding line of specialty street rod and performance parts available from Speedway Motors.
