Read Intake choice for 302CC 351c

hey all
Just about to have the heads worked on a bit, angle job on intake seats, short turn and some bowl work... not costing me much! otherwise i wasnt gunna bother, so its time to get rid of this crap intake.

I am currently running a redline torker which is mis-matched to my heads. The intake ports being a shit load bigger. ( how much would this be effecting air flow?)

Whats a good intake to use for 6,200rpm max motor. Manual driven. 1" spacer. 650dp 351C. hyd cam

I dont want to spend to much so i was looking at getting a performer from calispeedsupplies for $250. dual plane. i know they are nothing special but will i see a loss? also he has none at the moment :( anyone know any supplier?
can anyone suggest a better intake? and if you know of a good 2nd hand one avail somewhere...
250 isnt my limit but if they arn't gunna be that much better i will be happy with the performer...

was dreaming of a high-rise dual plane torque power but spent all the nice $$$ for a while

Re: Intake choice for 302CC 351c

A performer won't make power to 6200. It'll drop off around 5800. They are basically an aluminium stock manifold. What you have should work. Otherwise your next bet is a weiand xcellerator.

Re: Intake choice for 302CC 351c

I think a good Inlet Manifold choice for you would be a Edelbrock 'Performer RPM'.It is basically the next one up in the range from the 'Performer'.The Performer 'RPM' is a good Street Manifold and I would'nt recommend going above the 'Performer RPM' unless you are going to spend more time with your car on the Track ,than on the Streets,IMO...Goodluck !!!

Re: Intake choice for 302CC 351c

Lukeh,I think you will find that there is no such intake to suit the clevo.Edelbrock are now making an air gap manifold but it won,t be cheap.>best bang for your buck comes with the weiand product as Brenx suggested.Sure,there are better manifolds ,but plan on spending around 700 bills to step up to the next level.You can prolly pick up a brand new weiand for around three fitty at the moment.

Re: Intake choice for 302CC 351c

I just assumed Edelbrock made one for the Cleveland,as they make one for Windsor and even the 'FE' Big Blocks!! I am surprised they do not make one for Cleveland if this true ??

Edelbrock are advertising it although it probably isn't available yet.

Re: Intake choice for 302CC 351c

they have always made a performer RPM, just not an air gap, which is coming soon.
ETA for rocket was the end of this month, but who knows.
I was looking to go dual plane, but in saying that i have only had my motor using a single plane.... going off theory it needs a dual plane but seems to pull hard with a single.
who can ask some specs and advise me what they ended with?... davis?
the cam is small, 214 224 and 507 534 lift crow hyd.
will be moving to a larger hyd or a bit bigger mech.

the weiand's get good word from everyone but are only singles i gather?....

has anyone got a good source for a weiland in that case?

thanks all
