Anyone know if anybody makes a TPI setup for big blocks?

GM makes the 502 Ramjet, I don't know if you can get the intake separately. Also the Vortec 454 from 1996 also had an EFI intake. Not TPI, but maybe close to what you are thinking?

i've never seen tpi for a big block that had quite the same look as what gm used on the small block. seems as though there was a similar looking setup to the ramjet sold in the aftermarket before gm started selling ramjet bigblocks, maybe arizona speed & marine or something like that?

accel super ram for the BBC part #77106 is oval port and #77102/77102H for rectangle port. It doesn't really have the TPI look either .....and as far as I've ever seen the ramjet and the super ram are the only 2 mass produced "TPI style" intakes for the BBC....and yes you can buy just the injection setup for the ramjet from GM. Here's the link to the pdf catalog.

it's on page 7 of this section I think http://www.accel-ignition.com/pdf/ACCEl_DFi.pdf

Street and Performance has a "TPI" setup for the BBC. Better have a big wallet... :shock:

Just a thought. I don't know what all would be involved with using a marine setup on a car, but the thought has crossed my mind a few times after seeing them at my engine builder's shop over the years.

With the long curved runners
