EB XR8 inlet manifold

Is there any point in installing an EB XR8 intake manifold onto my stock ED?


My tag line sucks, can I borrow yours?

The EB inlet manifold is very restrictive replacing it with a Trickflow (or similar) manifold will unleash a lot of power.

Re: EB XR8 inlet manifold

I agree with sideway, unless you plan to port the standard manifolds like hell, an aftermarket one will be better for overall flow. Even then you wont be able to get the same ammount of flow from an aftermarket one.

Trickflow, Edelbrock, Cobra, GT40 any of those types would a hell of a lot better than stock.

Quick question does Edelbrock make a manifold and heads for the EFI 302 Windsor? I know they make stuff for the EFI 351.

They surely do Sideway... Better still check out Trick Flow specialties They claim to out flow Edelbrock and i think they are cheaper..

Re: EB XR8 inlet manifold

Awesome thanks a lot. I heard Trickflow was very good but I was really impressed with the Edelbrock parts on the Hillier Brothers AU2DOR.
