    Intake manifolds

    thanks for the info on the A5 . sounds like the A4 is an air flow match for the 307 but not for the 350. The #17 i have now sounds like it has bigger ports than the A4 .

    Best coolant for a 307 ?

    What is the best coolant for a 1982 307 engine ? one site says the 307 needs the old style 2 year green coolant as it has better lubricant for the water pump . The older green coolant is not that common any more . I now have the 5 year long life Prestone in the 307 . Just put it in as...
