WEBCON’S NEW CROSSFLOW MANIFOLD

Ford’s legendary Crossflow (Kent) engine first entered production in the 1960s. Although it has not been made for around forty years, tuning this engine is as popular as ever. While many tuners favour a pair of Weber 40DCOEs, a significant number prefer the driveability and economy of a Weber 32/36DGV.

Despite the cessation of Ford’s production of the single carburettor manifold years ago demand is still strong and Webcon is thus delighted to announce that it has tooled up to produce the twin choke manifold for the Crossflow once again.

As you would expect, the revived manifold is made by Webcon in More >

DOM IS GREAT WITH PRODUCT NAMES
