There is a different version for the Pantera that has the carburetor base angled to fit the engine angle in the Pantera. The original Blue Thunder for 351Cs was developed before Panteras were built, for Shelby, and is for Mustangs.

IIRC there are two different part numbers for the Blue Thunder 351C application. One is for the Pantera and one is for everything else. The difference is the angle of the carb pad.

 Ah, so there are two versions of the Blue Thunder. That's good to know. I knew I'd read somewhere that there was a Blue Thunder intake for the Pantera, so I'm not going batty! :thumb:
