4.3 intake manifold

im switching a 4.3 from tbi to carb. do they make a 2 barrel stock intake manifold for this motor? all i have found is 4 barrel intakes. i think 85 was the only year this motor came out carbureted from the factory. i have a 2 barrel to 4 barrel adapter but would rather have a complete intake. any help would be great. thanks!!!!

"QUADRAJETS ARE JUNK." I wasn't positive before, so I kept my mouth shut. That is the statement of somebody who just doesn't have a clue.

I think he meant to say 2-barrel Rochesters. They are prefered for derby cars due to their simplicity and they can take a beating. The Q-Jet is a great street carb, but not for his use.
