Default Chevy Intakes

I know this may stupid but there a simple way to tell a sbc intake from a bbc when you have a motor or another intake to compare it too.

I think it makes more sense since I edited this.

A big block intake is much bigger than a small block intake. Longer and wider.

It's nearly impossible to mistake one for the other, especially if you have a motor or another intake to compare.

I was being shown a picture by a guy who didn't know what he had. I just thought there might be some guick Identificationpoints on it. In the picture, it's hard to tell size. I knew the question sounded a little stupid. I'll get to do measurements and I will on my end.

Sorry, I misunderstood.

From a photo, port configuration and bolt pattern will tell you the difference.

Small block



Big block

Thanks Doc, It is a small block. From the picture from the top it was hard to tell.
