Default '91 L "snakes" intake on a "C" engine ?

Have come across a complete "snakes" intake manifold: throttle body, MAF, & brackets and wondered if it can be bolted to a "C" engine. In the P&I the gasket set and heads are both different numbeers. Am interested because it looks like the later intake has significantly better flow characteristics (600 cfm vs 475) than the early one. Dunno if a "C" engine can use the extra but thought I'd give it a shot if there is nothing major.

Good idea except I have a number of "C" heads and the only "L"* are on our TranSport. Was concerned about the passages also. Need to dig out my spare "C" intake and compare them (need to spend a couple of weeks and clean out the garages).
