It would work. But you'd lose most of the benefit of the 2.4 head, it chokes it down that much.Bob,
How would your modified 1.9 intake (the racing one you wrote on article about years ago) with the wedge under the bowl and all cleaned up work on a 2.4 head/2.5 engine setup. I was considering using the new Holley Sniper EFI carb setup which claims to flow enough for 350 hp. It is all self tuning and looks like a really nice deal.
Which is why for most applications a modded 1.9 is better. Smaller ports for more torque, as-good or better airflow (when modded), and works better with low lift cams. 2.4 and 2.2 heads don't start to shine until .525" lift.
