Edelbrock Performer... :thumbup:


By stock, I assume you mean a cast iron spread bore.... ;)

I have a peanut port here in fair condition (just ugly and needs cleaning) I can let you have on the cheap... 8)

Hey,it's a factory cast iron manifold with a Holley 4bbl,I got the 049 oval port heads otherwise I wud be interested.thanks tho.i will take a look at the performer.i wanted to go with a performer rpm air gap but I don't think I have the clearance.Would a single plane like the torker/torker2 be a good choice on a stock 454? Not sure cuz of higher rpm but it is really low profile.

GM made a few different Oval port intakes in iron without an EGR...One of them was extremely short, mainly used on Corvettes and big block Impalas. The truck version was a little taller (about an inch taller) but the Performer is at least two inches taller..I don't know how close your situation is, but you may look into any aluminum intake for a Corvette.

IMHO a dual plane, or a modified dual plane would be the ticket....Why?  Because with the limited height you will be hard pressed to get the runner velocities where they need to be with such a short intake.

If I can't find a dual plane intake short enough do u think the Torker would hurt the performance or just not yield much.i don't expect much if any increased performance with intake
change but I would like to put one one..thanks again for the replys.

Hmmm.on the edelbrock website it had the lowest intake deck height,or maybe its the Torker 2 .one of them it listed as .25 inches taller then corvette intake which is pretty low profile.im not expecting a performance increase,but definitely don't want to hurt the performance tho.
