Re: Explorer vs. Edelbrock Performer
Not too sure. It will obviously depend on application and how far you intend to go.
From what SikEDXR8 car is built to, it would benefit with a explorer no doubt, but IMHO not as much as an aftermarket manifold like an edlebrock performer RPM or similar in the trickflow range.
I have been in Simons car and it definitely need help breathing in the topend department as it wont make power over 4000rpm in its current state. It should rev to 6500-7000rpm with little hassle as it was built that way!
It would be best to assess your intentions and your budget to determine your initial decision for a manifold.
Lastly I would say for bang for your buck, the edelbrock performer is an excellent street intake for not much over 1k. If you can find an explorer manifold, you are definitely doing well!
