    Asking for a Japanese Alpine owner. He has a Minx engine in his Alpine with the cast iron head. Can he fit an Alpine S4 exhaust manifold and the S4 intake manifold to it? I sure don't know.....Thanks!

    One thing is sure: the intake manifold of an Alpine will never work on a cast iron head because of the order of the valves (intake/outlet) is different between cast iron heads and alu heads!
    The cast iron head will probably not fit either because of the shape of the inlet manifold and/or the place of the exit of the exhaust manifold which maybe causes the exhaust pipe being in the wrong position.
    My advice: forget about this idea!

    Regards,

    Aluminum head manifolds wont interchange with iron. But, early Rapiers had dual carb manifolds for iron heads.
