Would like to find a Blue Thunder intake for a 4V 351C. Thanks!

Oh yeah, I've seen it. That price though. If that one was $500 delivered, I'd probably be all over it. This one is a bit too rich for my blood at $630 delivered.

Just to confirm the idea of installing a Blue Thunder Intake.

I replaced the original cast iron intake on my 1971 429 SCJ with a Blue Thunder intake. See pix.

Have had no issues and definitely improves performance.

 

The Blue Thunder intake is taller than the original, so you must make doubly sure there is enough clearance between your air cleaner and the underside of the hood. Otherwise, you'll end up with a dent in the hood.

I paid about the same for mine and it was worth every penny. It’s a beautiful piece, but not cheap. They don’t seem to come up for sale used very often.
