    I might be picking up an Edelbrock Torker II manifold in trade for some stuff I am trying to sell. Is that a good intake for a DD K5? or would I be better off with a performer intake?

    You would be much better off with the Performer. The Torker II is a single plane intake made more for high-RPM use.

    I have never understood the Torker line of intakes.....the Performer RPM is good from 1500-6500rpm while the Torker II is good for 2500-6500rpm. So why not get the Perf RPM. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    reason why you'd get a torker is if you dont care about performace below 2500, because even tho they have similar operating ranges,the torker will outperform the RPM above 3000 causs its a single plane.

    Sure, if you need a set of 4:10 gears (10bolt)
