    my edelbrock performer is warped...back to stock till i can afford a new intake.

    anyway, what does the majority perfer? i plan on runnin a dual plane square bore. This is sbc350. Its mostly my DD. I was thinkin either the air gap, torker 2, or weiand stealth

    The torker will hurt low end. Ive run Performer's and currently RPM air gap. Its on a 383 with a 230 @ .050 cam and aluminum heads with 10:1 comp. The RPM shouldnt hurt torque and help HP. If you plan to keep everything stock Id stick with the regular Performer. Unless you plan to make over 300hp.

    I believe those motors are rated with performance intake and exhaust. Maybe not, tho the manifold wont give you 30+ hp. But anyway, I would go Performer RPM. I havent seen/heard of much of a difference between a RPM and RPM air gap. Not making enough power. Im sure on some 500HP beast it would, or a drag car maybe. But ya I have one. And my 383 powered K20 is the power, and my stock 85 5.0 Mustang with 200,000+ miles has the reliability. :haha:

    I would go Performer, not RPM unless you run above 5000 alot.

    I would take that one to a machine shop and have it trued up. This can't always be done, but usually can.
