A guy at corral.net is offering me a scorpion but Ive never heard anything about them, how do they compare to a strip dominator?

It is an Edelbrock specificly designed for extended high RPM (NASCAR)use. High end Tarantula. Don't see many these days.

That's one intake I've seen pictures of only. Never even seen them at the swaps.

that's one rare beast! Anybody know how they compare with the strip dominator, etc.?

I looked at buying one years ago. Talked to Edelbrock about them. They were in the catalogs for only one year. They look like a torker with a 2" taller plenum.
I would bet a Strip Dominator would be better for street strip. I imagine that the Scorpion would be a dog below 4K rpm.
BTW the NASCAR guys still used a "box" intake on short tracks and the Scorpion on tracks that didn't require the revs to drop much.

I found a Strip Dominator for a guy that had a Scorpion. Externally, the Scorpion looked just like a Torker except it was a fair bit taller. The owner had ported the Scorpion so I can't say how close it was to a Torker inside. I never did hear back on how the Scorpion compared to Strip Dominator at the track, though.
