Broke it trying to take it off, did he??
The 1970s style Superior plastic intakes are almost impossible to take off, as the slotted screw heads are molded into the plastic housing. The screws just spin in the molded plastic when trying to removed the nuts. I have a spare that I removed from my parts car with a cordless grinder(cut it out of the quarter panel). The best option is to go with the prior generation Superior intake with the pot metal housing. I have both styles available, but he won't like my price on the plastic one. The prior style Superior intake was the same intake that Cadillac used on the 1963 thru 1968(?) Cadillac series 75s. I would also need to know the name of the recipient before I would agree to sell either one of them as there is one Canadian that I will not deal with.
