THE MISSING LINK
When Chevrolet developed the 194-292 CID inline six engine in the late 1950's
, air flow through the cylinder head was way down on the list of manufacturing priorities. This engine was, after all,
a basic passenger and truck commodity item - from a company that built its reputation on dependability and value for the dollar.
The cylinder head port placement and arrangement, almost
by sheer luck, performed better than anticipated. Still, Chevrolet missed what would have been a relatively simple modification
to the intake ports. A modification that would have forever changed the efficiency and performance potential
of this engine series.
Kay Sissell, a California
racer and speed merchant, pioneered this development in the mid 1960's with the first “lump-port” performance
head. The missing performance link had been discovered! Kay’s head featured the removal of the intake head bolt bosses
and welded or brazed-in lumps. The lumps increased the velocity of the air-fuel mixture and turned the charge more effectively
into the cylinders. The extreme nature of these modifications meant this was a high dollar piece of performance art. This
design, however, made a huge difference in horsepower and set the standard for Chevrolet line six performance
- for decades.
Over the years, several attempts have been made to develop
easier, more affordable bolt-in designs. None were widely available or very successful.
Now, after years of studying these prior designs and countless
flow bench hours refining the ultimate Missing Link
Twisted 6 Racing is pleased to announce the availability of the finest virgin alloy aluminum bolt-in intake lumps ever produced.
Combine these lumps with bolt-boss removal and competition
valve job, and you have the most horsepower-per-dollar performance-enhancing modification available today. Best of all these
Missing Link Design lumps work well for all performance applications - street,
strip or oval track - small or large chamber heads with stock or oversized valves,and any intake manifold design.
The price barrier to high performance has been broken...no
