    There is no good answer here. Many different types of manifolds will work well for low end. I think that the best for low end torque is the stock one. Most of the aftermarket try to add power through the whole range at a sacrafice to the low end that depends on the manifold.

    If you are looking for a good aftermarket aluminum intake, I would recommend and Edelbrock Performer or Weiand Action Plus. Both are good from idle to about 5500 rpm. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    Same as what Beast said. Most any type of dual plane, low rise intake will help produce low end torque

    I agree with sandman in the respect that for low end the low rise stocker is best. How ever none of my rides have the stock manifolds, I think the trade off is worth the extra power gained from 1500 rpm's and up is worth it. As far as witch one is best my vote is the rpm air gap by edelbrok. The air gap lowers the intake temp there by incressing power across the entire rpm range

    For bottom end torque, it's hard to beat the factory intake with a Qjet.

    An Offenhauser dual-port... or so I'm told /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    Might have to do with the small "primary" ports.

    I'd have to agree with Tim. Go for the Weiand Stealth. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    That dual port looks pretty cool. I dont think I've ever seen one.
