    the performer intake should be a dual pattern intake so you shouldn't need an adapter.

    edelbrock intake

    I have a performer intake (and carb) on another truck that I don't use anymore. I want to keep my q-jet on the burb. How much power gains would I see by swapping in my edelbrcok intake? How much weight loss would that be?
    thanks,

    James

    Hard to isolate the difference, or remember, but I do recall a rewarding step-up in response. Weight, ?15#s.

    im pritty sure the e-brock intakes have a speadbore and a square bore hole pattern cut in them so no problems. if so get one of those cheepy converter spacers from autozone
