    super HO towncar questions

    could I put a GT40 upper and lower intake on the towncar, along with the GT40 heads to make a real high power beast? i guess my main questions are 1) can the GT40 upper intake be reversed just like the regular HO intake? and 2) do i HAVE TO use a GT40 intake with the GT40 heads? oh yeah and how much power will this make; close to 250/305 or closer to 275/325 :slug:
