Edelbrock RPM heads/intake

Has anyone tried using the edelbrock rpm heads and intake, what kind of results did you have? I have a '72 4v and lookin into some better heads, and higher compression, without havin to put in new pistions. The edelbrocks seem to be the most logical choice as i live in the states and they are easier to obtain than chi's or afd's. Just want to make sure i'm not buyin a total crap product. Thanx for any help.

These are the cam specs i'd be running. Want to get in the 400ish hp range. Maybe with some help from a little nitrous.

Duration- int. 285
exh. 295
int. @.050 225
exh. @.050 235

Lift- int. 540
exh. 560
lobe separation- 112*

Re: Edelbrock RPM heads/intake

Mate there's not a whole lot of info on the edelbrock heads as most do tend to use AFD or CHI's.

But in saying that if you have got your heart set on the E's I cant see too much trouble in getting 400+ from them with the right cam and carby.

I cant find any flow figures for them but I would go a little bigger in camshaft than the one you got listed.Comp Cams Online Catalog Look at the comp XE274H
or

CraneCams Crane H-292-2

And yeah your headers will fit
