Default "Zeus" intake manifolds??????????

Trying to figure out just what intake manifold my Elco motor (454 rectangular port Gen5) has on it. The only markings are a "Zeus" casting on it right in front of the carb.
I did find one for sale in EBay archives and it stated it was a high rise alum. intake that was used for LS6 motors. Sort of cross referenced to GM 3933163 as far as I could determine
Any gurus to set me straight, it's staying put so no bad news please

If it's a Gen 5 motor, the heads and intake might have been swapped out.

Does the intake look like this ? http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/perform...CATID=611.html

Yep, same description the guy used on EBay. Like I said it aint going nowhere and from what I've been told it is a good performer
Maybe someday when it gets AFR heads and a full roller setup it will leave but for now it WORKS WELL enough for me
Thanks

LS6 intakes were flat low-risers.

The "163" intake was used on L78s.

Zeus, Is an Alum. foundry in Latrobe,Pa. The valve covers on G.M. engines, The ones that spell out Chevrolet in big letters=Zeus NASCAR (Mopar) Alum. heads=ZEUS, Special Alum. engine parts Roush,Yates,R.C.R.=ZEUS.
Alum. Blocks--- Chevy,Ford= I believe ZEUS moved to the Mid-West recently Could be a connection between the Zeus, and the foundry Zeus??
