'80 intake v/s '83 intake??? (258)
I recently but a 258 from an '83 CJ7 into my '80 and my old intake was a cast iron, the new one is an aluminum with water jacket and the little rods that stick up under the carb. Is the newer a significantly better intake? My linkage bracket does not bolt up to newer intake and is needed to maintain stock linkage for transmission kickdown (TF999). I think I may just go to cable on kickdown, as I'd think the cooler intake and better atomization were the goals in the redesign. Thanks for any info.
