    They make a nice mid-level drag or hot street intake but I think the 3,500-8,000 RPM range would be a little high :eek1: for woods work.

    Open plenum(?) intakes ain't known for low end grunt!

    I have run Edelbrock Performer intakes (EDL-2161) on a couple mild 454's that I have owned with great success.

    Hotrod car or mudbogger yes anything else probably not.

    I didn't know if you where joking or not about running a set-up like that?

    I called a buddy that runs a simialar set-up on his drag car and he says his BG 1050 Holley/Victor jr cost almost $1100 bones, just to get an idea of what the bidding could do.

    whew* thats pretty expensive! hahah, and no i wasnt jokin - as crazy as it sounds, before it closed for the winter i took my truck down to the fairgrounds to race the 1/8 against my friends trucks. its definately alot of fun and we'd get some crazy looks from the ppl watching:D otherwise we wheel mostly mud, not too many trails close by that i know of.

    so yeah thats kindof what im lookin for, if not for the price...

    With a 1000+ cfm carb you ain't talking mileage your talking feetage:haha: .

    I wouldn't drop a set-up like that on a stock BBC , unless your talking LS6 most factory big blocks would drown under that flood of fuel!

    No trails in Tennessee , WHAT!

    You will not be happy with this manifold, it's all top end, and it sucks for cold weather driveability.

    I love my Weiand Stealth, it's a dual plane and range is off idle to 6800 RPM.

    It's a pretty good setup - for a bracket racer.
