intakes for new 347

Hi all, just wondering if anyone has either used / using Edelbrock RPM Series 2 manifold or has come across any comparison notes for that unit and the trickflow gear. My stroker motor goes together in the next few weeks and I still haven't sorted the intakes yet. I'm leaning towards the edelbrock unit as the heads are edelbrock alloys but the tfs units look ok aswell, Any ideas on other newer intakes would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Re: intakes for new 347

I run a Performer 5.0L, i havent lost any off idle to midrange grunt inwhich was my greatest worry.
Id rather get there faster, that being able to get a faster top end.

Re: intakes for new 347

The new Trickflow looks VERY similar to a TS50 inlet...

Re: intakes for new 347

Yep your right graham but the article i read mentions they lose abit of lower range & would be best suited to Wild to blown strokers.

Re: intakes for new 347

Yea was that on a 5 Ltr ??? A camed up etc 347 is different, yes most good inlets do loose some low end power but hopefully makes up for it over 1500 or so...

Re: intakes for new 347

i personally think that the new trickflow job would be to big for any 302,331,347, more suited to an off it's tits 351 or 351 stroker,

Re: intakes for new 347

Hey Shannon I will find some time this week and give you a call.
Am I not looking hard enough or is this new manifold not on the trickflow website?
Does anybody have any pictures, specs on this manifold?
