Minor points of clarification, but those aren't R1 parts. They're Lionel Stone aftermarket reproductions in aluminum. They'll fit any Stude V8.

Those more familiar can confirm, but when buying the aluminum water manifold, there is an R2 version and a normally aspirated version. Sometimes the seller knows the difference, sometimes he doesn't.

Same with the intake manifold; there is an R3 version and a standard port version. Suggest asking for photos of these parts, as they are application specific and sometimes the seller isn't sure what he has.

Another heads-up.
They aren't always a bolt on..! Some need work to make them fit, some fit as is. A bit of a crap-shoot.
