This interesting shot, taken while walking the rows at Carlisle, shows even more plainly the width differences in several of the different classic Ford intake manifolds. The short-deck intake is at the top while the Windsor intake is shown at the bottom. Wider still is the FE intake shown in the middle of the trio. Unique among V-8 engines, the FE intake casting has the upper valve-cover rail incorporated into it and the pushrods transit the intake through openings in the manifold.
