    The only one I have is that they aren't the same. :D

    One again - mid '80s 'Vette, Camaro or Firebird. Even if its from a 305 all you'll need is bigger injectors if you put it on a 350.

    I meant the intake HOLE. You know the portion on the front? (Oval on the corvette TPI's, Well, this is circular and smaller.)

    What year were the vans?

    Were they 4.3s?

    Otherwise I don't know - I've never looked beyond the ones I referenced.

    Sigh... I didn't look at any of the years, but they were the popular Astros you see everywhere, square headlights, etc.
    The intake was on the front of the manifold, same position as the TPI's, and had the tubular piping.

    I can't say without looking. I will guess since its on an Astro Van that it may just be ducting for a TBI. The main point here is that whatever it is, its on a 4.3 V6.
