What made you choose this particular product?
It fit the price range I was willing to pay, vs the $600+ quote I was offered to have the original intake repaired. Also, I intend to reuse the original Carter-built M4MC Quadrajet carburetor, which this intake will accept.

Replace the original intake manifold that was cracked during removal
