    I know someone that has a Peroformer 2-O non-EGR intake forsale. He only used it for a couple weeks then went to a single plane.
    I was thinking about putting it on my rebuilt '72 402 BB. It is stock except for a mild cam and MSD ignition. It needs a new exhaust so I was kicking around the idea of headers and an intake.
    Right now the low end is awsome so I don't need any improvement there, but it dies at 4000rpm. Would the Performer be a worth while investment? I need more top end power.
    I would put my stock Q-jet back on it since it was rebuilt less than a year ago.
    Tomorrow (10-28) is the only time I have the chance to see this guy, so any help would be appreciated.

    Hit? Those tires rub . Rubbin' is off roadin'.

    I can't answer your question but if you do go with this use anti-sieze before putting any bolts into it or be sorry later.

    Not sure about your application but mine improved. I think it was worth it, guess it depends on how much he wants for it.
    Good luck.

    It will be an improvement over the stock intake. If you really want higher rpms, get a Performer-RPM, or maybe a Weiand Stealth.
