    I have one on my 2wd truck. I think they rate them for 0-7200 rpm. I bought mine from Jegs last year. I don't think they have the hole for the oil tube. But if the one you have is pretty old, the one I have may be a different design. My intake has the "street dominator" logo right in front of where the carb bolts on.

    I just gave one away. if it is a split entry (dual plane) then it will run 0-7500 RPM. If it is just a big hole for your gas $$$ to go then it runs 2500-7500 RPM. goes good but sucks the gas.

    I was looking at one the other day. It does not look nearly the quality of the Edelbrock.

    I don't see how a manifold can make power from idle to 7200, even though that is what they claim. Don't expect it to do that.

    I recommend the Edelbrock. Better quality casting and design

    Yeah but I have this one here and it didn't cost me anything. All it would cost is the time and gaskets to install it. What I have on there now is the stock cast iron 4 barrel manifold. Would this be better than stock?

    Back in '76 the carb on my mustang bit the big one on a sunday and I had to get back to the Army base where I was stationed. A freind had a 3 barrel holley on his shelf that we thru on the car. A 3 barrel holley has a BIG oval barrel for the secondaries. It was like a 950 cfm carb too. You could see the gas gauge go down when you stepped on it. I got that sucker off the next weekend.

    I personally do NOT like Edelbrock. I think you're paying more for the name then anything else. Quality isn't what it used to be with the Edelbrock. I much reather have a Dart intake manifold any day !!!!!! Wieand, and Holley arn't bad either.

    I'd say give it a try, I use "Torque Plus" intake gaskets Jeg's part #886-1101 They cost alittle more, but I think they're worth it.
