    Okay I am looking for a new intake and cam for my 454. It is going in a crewcab for DD and tow purposes. I currently have an old Edelbrock smog era intake, the only thing wrong with it is the carb mounting holes are stripped/drilled straight through. So I figure instead of repairing it I would look at getting a new intake. But all I ever hear about is the Edelbrock performer. I know there are others like Weiand Stealth, and Action Plus, and Holleys and even the new Professional Products. So my question is what should I look for and how do I choose the right one for my needs. More info:

    454 .030 over
    9.5 compression
    781 heads 118cc
    Qjet
    Cam will be either:
    208/218 @.050
    .475/.500 lift
    112 duration
    or
    218/228 @.050
    .500/.500 lift
    112 duration

    or something similar in profile (I haven't chosen a cam but will pick one for low end and towing similar to these two grinds)

    Any input is appreciated!

    Well one things for sure, you can probably never really go wrong with a edelbrock intake for your application. I personally have a holley intake but that was because it had bigger bores to match the high flow tbi thats on there. I had a similar plan for my crew cab, little RV/tow cam, edelbrock dual plane intake and a good set of headers. That would make it run real nice.

    Well Edelbrock does seem to be the standard option and actually the one I am leaning towards. but mainly because I never hear much about the others like Holley and Weiand. Anybody using something other than Edelbrock on a tow rig?
