I'm pretty sure they're the same. I have an Edelbrock Torker II manifold on my 302w and i'm sure it says 289-302 somewhere on it.

Damn, i just checked and it reads Torker II 302 on the manifold. I'm pretty sure it'll fit. But the runners might be a tad smaller on the 289.

I have a Performer 289 manifold on my 302. The Performer 302 manifold is designed for 1972-1985 302 Windsors with EGR.

Thanks guys as mine is a 69 302w just one other q's is what rev range is the torker and what sort of mods would you need to do (as mine is stock but Im looking at doing it up) to suit the manifold?

Re: Is there any diffrence in edlbrock manifolds 289 and 302w

The rpm range of a Torker II 302 manifold is 2500-6500rpm.
Edelbrock recommend :
carb : between 600 & 800cfm
heads : performer RPM
cam specs : duration @ 0.050; in 214, exh 224. valve lift; in 0.472, exh 0.496

Make sure the motor is built strong enough to rev to 6500/7000rpm and you'll probably need to look into a higher stall converter and lower diff gears.

More info here. Look at "Power Package Guide" in the menu.

The Torkers rev range is 2500-6500 on Edelbrocks webpage.

I also have a 69 zc with 302w in it It was completely stock with a 350 holley and original 2v manifold. It felt like once it hit 4000rpm it hit a wall with power and went no-where. I then installed a Torker II and a 600vs carby. I instantly noticed the difference, it revved quite freely to about 5500rpm, making heaps more power than before. Since then i've fitted 4 into 1 extractors, ported and polished heads with 1.94 & 1.60 valves with studs, guides and roller rockers and she goes sweet. Kept up with my mates AUII XR6, which had a few mods done as well. But now my cars off the road getting the motor tweaked.

Hope this helps.
