That's the only one I know of. I suppose there are Chinese knockoffs, but I don't have any actual knowledge of 'em.

The early TBI 7.4L used an old low-rise Q-Jet intake plus a huge adapter with a water-jacket and hose nipples to maintain even temperature under the TBI unit.

No, the intakes all bolt up as far as I know, regardless of a port mismatch. I find it ironic that they make an obvious TBI intake, then go and tell you it doesn't fit the majority of TBI engines. It could be that they're not peanut port?

I've heard the term ''peanut port'' but never really understood what that is.
some one will chime in if I am wrong here but as far as I know big block head ports go like peanut port small oval port large oval port and rectangle port note the rectangle ports are large only and are no good for low and mid rpms they are for high rpms only peanut ports are great to make a torque monster and both the types of oval ports are good for an all around engine
