93 ghia 5.0. extractors, 2.5" exhaust, u/d pulley and k+n filter so far.
ok. next thing i'm doin to me car is intake manifold and roller rockers... i've already decided to go with yella terra 2027 jobs since i like the stock cam.. but i need advice on what intake to go for.
first i'll start by saying what i want out of it, instead of the typical vague 'what is best' queries.
i want a manifold that will pref be good flowing for a 5.0 which during its life may likely never see more than 250kw(maybe more if stroked), and a power range going up to 5500. however i may need headroom because as the engine is just about to hit 225k, i may need(want) a bottom end rebuild and if i d0 that, i'll be putting a 3.400" throw crank in. i.e. going to a 347. my manifold will have to be able to cope with the extra flow needed.. (porting??)
bottom line is, i want good torque, but also decent power up top and mid range. sure, i'm asking alot, but these forums are full of questions, so this shouldnt be out of place.
currently i'm looking at the Edelbrock Performer 5.0 and the TFS Street Heat. TFS is cheaper at $914, but the edelbrock($1085) has a removable plenum cover, which would make porting heaps easier..
is there a major difference between these two manifolds?
Previous ride: EBII V8 Manual Ghia spring roll.
Current ride: 1970 ZC 351 Fairlane Custom.. (estimated 350ftlb @ 2000rpm.. max torque 420ftlb at 4500rpm.. with standard exhaust manifold!)
