    What is a good intake manifold that will give good torque with an Edlebrock Quadrajet on a 350 with headers? Thanks

    Stay away from single planes. If you were a pure mudder Fo for a Torquer II (dn't let the name fool you) or Victor Jr.

    Edelbrock Performer intake works good for torque. Also with headers keep the primary tubes between 1 1/2 and 1 5/8".

    See <a target="_blank" href=http://coloradok5.com/gallery/Waynes-Toy>Project Mighty Mouse</a> here.

    The Edelbrock Performer Air-Gap is great, not the RPM as that has a sunken spacer. Might as well take advantage of a cooler charge while your at it.

    I started with nothing and I still have most of that left! - <a target="_blank" href=http://24.55.50.76:81/k5/> Pictures</a>
