Upper/Lower intake

I was thinking about getting a trickflow upper and lower intake for my eb v8 but i also found out that edelbrock make a upper and lower intake as well. What set would be the best? also what sort of power increase would i be looking at and whatprice would i be looking at??

Re: Upper/Lower intake

Both the Edelbrock and Trickflow intakes should set you back about $1100. Trickflow advertise they flow around 245cfm per runner while Edelbrock are around 220cfm. Personally I would probably go for the Edelbrock because 1) 220cfm should be enough for around 300kw 2) Edelbrock say they don't loose any low down torque and 3) trickflows have had problems with head to intake leaks, although I don't know if they are fixed by now. Either one will give you good results though. Also, what heads are you running, because if they are still the stock E7 heads, the intake won't make a huge difference.

Re: Upper/Lower intake

Most the issues with Trickflow leaks was due to builders fitting too thick gasget in valley between heads.If you check on there site it says to use silicon sealant for this reason..
Exactly these are heavy breathing inlets but better even flow to one and five cyl compared to std type inlets..

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

I have Trick Flow street inlet and Twisted Wedge heads and have had NO problems.Done about 25,000kms with this combo and am very happy!Definatly would recomend them.

There's a bear in there.
