    There's a reason for the same old Edelbrock on a sbc. They work. To be different just for the sake of being different seems counter-productive to me. The only street manifold I've ever owned that would outdo an Edelbrock dual plane was a 300-36 Holley that was portmatched to some Brodix heads I had on a 377 sbc.

    I prefer the "air gap" style intakes as it is a smudge easier on tuning the mixture cause the fuel stays at a closer temp when cold and hot. So i have found out with my stuff anyways.

    I was using a used intake. I did everything I couild to make it look good. It was ok for a while then it dulled:eek: So I sprang for a new one. I hope this one lasts because it's the last dam one going on this thing fo sure.

    Dig a deep hole in the backyard and bury it.
