    i have the weiand stealth on my nova. it was recommended to me since it has a broader RPM range. i think the edelbrock one is idle to 5500 RPM (??), but was told it starts dropping off at 5000 RPM, whereas the stealth is idle to 6000 RPM (?), it is a good intake. i seriously doubt you'd be revving up your truck motor to 5500-6000 RPMS anyway!! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    oh, if you chose the edelbrock intake, you'd probably want the EPS or regular Performer series (you might want to check into the Air Gap, but might have to check for hood clearance?). also, the RPM series moves the RPM range higher (1500-6500 RPM)

    EPS looks cool I guess...not MUCH gain, but if its the same cost and has the same features (EGR, etc) as the regular Performer, why not?

    If you are concerned about emissions, you will need an EGR model. I think the regular Performer is the only one with that setup (of the Edelbrocks). If you are not concerned with emissions, I would go with the Performer Air Gap. it keeps things cooler and looks cool too (although it holds mud!). The RPM model is more specific to higher RPMs. Our rigs usually need more low-end grunt.
