This may be a recycled topic.
What is the general opinion of these items. Good or bad>?

I have a Weiand X-cellerator 4V on my Cleveland, With a square bore carb.

Will one of these help me?

If, so should I get the 4 hole or open type?

Should I get the two inch or the one inch?

Do they help bottom end power?

Thanks as always for the advise.

I went from an open 1/2inch to a 4hole 1".
And yes it did make a difference at low end too.

4 Hole - low and mid range. (1000-6000 rpms)
Taller - extended rpm range
Open - mid and top end. (2500+ rpms)

From my experience, you can't go wrong with any type from 1-2 inches. Just make sure that you have enough hood clearance for the spacer and the xtra gasket.
