I've got one of those too, it gets the job done. This thing looks neat though and would let you get some more height out of your lift I think.

Load Leveling Lift Plate

Hi guys,
I had the same reservations about four carb studs on an aluminum manifold lifting a BBC over my Camaro. So when I designed this plate, I had two of them destroyed to find out whether my fears were warranted. Long story short, the plate failed around 8000 lbs on both an iron and alum manifold. The alloy steel carb studs could be unscrewed by hand after the test. I thought for sure the studs would pull out of the aluminum first but the myth was busted. You can see my test results in the tech section of the Kaizen Motorsports website. Take care guys.

The carb plates work great, I have pulled countless of engines with them, just use the longest bolt you can on the intake and still be tight to the plate. I made my own for $2.50. Instead of the bar on the one's you buy I put an eye bolt(welded closed of course) so I can rotate the engine.
