The 1.355” sized Tillotson HR or EC Intimidator XHR is gaining popularity in the open classes. We highly recommend using our XHR-4 as it has been a dominant force in the open class winning the last few national money races including the Big O, Thanksgiving Thunder, and more. This intake only fits the Blockzilla 2 or 3 and will not fit the Blockzilla 1 or raptor blocks.
Designed and CNC machined to match each unique intake port shape precisely at the entrance of the block or cylinder head. (May vary on head type and model)The resulting action is no turbulence causing misalignment and much better control of the laminar flow in the entire intake tract. By using the Tillotson carburetor we can create the best angle through the port. Pulse hole is precisely located for increase pumping action at high RPM. All installation hardware included.
If you are looking at the length of the intake as a way of port length tuning for the engine there are a few things you need to know. The Tillotson carburetor, being a diaphragm pump carburetor, needs a good vacuum or pulse signal from the intake. If you make your intake too long then you lose signal to the carburetor and potentially hinder its tuning and performance. Tuning your port runner length is more of an exact science than many realize and simply adding more length doesn’t always net the gains you want; where you want. Your carburetor, head ports and cam timing as well as where you want your engine to gain are all part of the science of port tuning. Unless you have the equipment, time, and money its difficult to test theory and your gains may be minimal.
