Default intake manifold question?

this may be a weird or dumb question, but is there any way to make the manifold from an 04 ram flow/fit 09+ heads?

you would have to modify the intake manifold, and it would be very time consuming and labor intensive. I can PM you a link where a local buddy of mine made his '06 magnum R/T intake manifold fit a new set of eagle heads, but it was a very long job, but 100% worth it since both he and I did a bunch of imperical testing on it regarding the actual flow rates, not just fluid bench flow rates.

I know he is planning on swapping to a new engine this winter, I could ask if he'd be willing to part with it, but honestly it's doubtful since he's a pack rat and his basement has more car parts than the summit racing warehouse.

If you are doing the eagle head swap, it would be cheaper, and more practical to pick up a used LX 5.7L eagle intake manifold, they are very cheap, I know of two for sale right now for $125-175; I would also go with the 6.1L intake manifold since both would require the timing cover swap.

Scratch that, his swap was an '09 manifold to pre-eagle heads. The D-shaped ports on the pre-eagle manifold will cover over the square ports on the eagle heads, just be aware that you will create a lot of turbulence in the air flow due to the sudden expansion of air as it passes between the manifold to the heads, this will decrease the flow velocity, which you will really want to maintain. You may lose some power due to this, and IMHO it would still be worth picking up an '09 R/T manifold.

If you swap to the LX manifolds, then you have SO many more options that are better than the vararam, however, if you are absolutely set on getting the vararam, then you will be able to bolt the intake right to the heads, but like I said, there will be a loss in flow velocity due to the sudden expansion.
