We frequently get asked about how the KRE North Wind intake measures up!  We have used this intake on engines making 500 hp to 850 hp and everything in between.

The following table of measurements was taken using a MR-1A Block with a set of stock KRE Aluminum D ports with Tin Indian Performance .060 thick intake gaskets.  All of the intake manifolds measured were in their original / unmodified form.    Measurements were taken off of the carb flange to the valley pan area.  Some of the intakes have tapered carb flanges.  All measurements are in inches.
