Is it flawless? No! Is it beautiful? No! It would be as out of place on a trailer queen as a set of rusty valve covers. Is it priced right? You better believe it. This is an Edelbrock TR2X dual quad tunnel ram that fits standard deck Chevy big blocks with rectangular port heads. It's one of Edelbrocks biggest tunnel ram manifolds. It stands just short of 16” tall from the base to the air cleaner pads on the carbs. It has been ported and gasket matched to FelPro Q 12523 intake gaskets. It's a good enough job to call it professionally done. It totally lacks the wiggly edges so common on manifolds that have been done by a shade tree guy with a new die grinder and a 12 pack. If you want to see how radical the work on it is, do a search on Ebay for 270801933288 (last two pictures), and then compare it with this one. That's at least $400-500 worth of work that's been done. The top and bottom halves have also been blended.


 

Why am I willing to part with it so cheap? I've had it for over two years and every project it's been scheduled to go on has been scrubbed. I'm tired of tripping over it. Before you bid on it, here's everything you need to know about it.


 

There is a welded repair at the boss on top of the water crossover. It's a weak spot on these early Edelbrock tunnels. If someone gets too rough putting in a plug or fitting, it will crack. The boss is cast too tall and thin. With the repair already done, there should be no problem with it. The last two pictures are close ups of the repair. While the top is not what I would call show polished, it is bright and will look good sticking up. The polish job on the bottom is a lot more old school, not as complete or bright. I'm not sure if the different appearing color between the top and bottom is caused by the difference in polishing level, or the aluminum that was used in casting the two pieces. It would be fine on a driver or rat rod. There's a minor crack on one of the outboard bolt holes between the runners. Somebody probably torqued them down one time. Edelbrock recommends those bolts only be finger tightened. They're non-functional. As a matter of fact, they don't even cast those bolt holes on BBC Victor manifolds.


 

On the positive side, I've already told you about the porting. The ports measure about 2 7/16”x 1 3/4”. There is no corrosion at the thermostat, water crossover ports, or rear block offs. There are no helicoils and all the threads look good. This would be a great manifold on a big block capable of running some serious revs. There's a brand new 360 degree adjustable thermostat elbow on it, and a brand new thermostat inside. I wouldn't call it ugly, but it's not a beauty contest winner either. The carbs are a pair of Holley 1850's with the tops milled off. They have a little bit of surface rust on them, but they're a long way from being scrapper carbs. They will need rebuilding as they've been sitting a long time.


 

As you can see from the pictures below, and the description I gave you, I'm not playing games, or hiding anything from you. No BS here. While a may not be a show stopper, it's a damned good serviceable manifold and my starting price is a lot less than the $600 one I sent you to above. As a matter of fact, my starting price is $599.00 cheaper. You'll get a really strong manifold you need, and I'll get rid of a part that's always in my way. It comes with what you see in the pictures. The top and bottom half, two 1850 carbs, the thermostat, and the new elbow. The shipping will show high as it weighs 52 pounds boxed and ready to ship. As always, I refund any overpayment of shipping more than nine cents, that's right, nine cents, and I cover anything the calculator undercharges.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR INTERNATIONAL BUYERS

 

 

 

If you really are that desperate for this less than glamorous tunnel ram, contact me for a quote. It will have to be shipped in two boxes and all you'll get from me is an estimated quote. I will guarantee that the shipping for the two boxes will be about as much, if not more, than you pay for the manifold.

 

 

  • Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility.

  • Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying.

  • These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up – do not confuse them for additional shipping charges.

  • I do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as "gifts" - US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.

 

SHIPPING: Shipping on this item will be by FedEx, not UPS as shown above. It will be delivered to your door by FedEx ground anywhere in the lower 48 with insurance included. It will be shipped within 2 days of payment. Alaska and Hawaii buyers, please request a shipping quote prior to bidding as Priority mail and Parcel Post are a lot cheaper for you.  Insurance is mandatory for Alaska, Hawaii, and International buyers for obvious reasons. On international, I charge actual cost plus US $10.00 to help cover PayPal’s cost of currency conversion.  International orders MUST be paid by PayPal. Please don’t ask me to lie on customs forms. Buyer is responsible for any and all customs fee’s. Payment must be made within 5 days of end of auction. If your feedback is below 98%, contact me before you bid. Check my feedback. I value it highly, just as I value yours.
