i dont know anything about this guys engine but could be useful..(its from the ford muscle site)i thought some clevland owners might like to hear about some interesting dyno results I got from manifold swaping. All results are rear wheel horsepower on a 72 Pantera. Power loss through the transaxle and giant 335x35x17 tires is suposed to be 17%.
The engine is .030 over with TRW flat top pistons, 4v heads with minor port clean up and gasket matching. The exaust has the bronze tongues from M.P.G. The cam is a $85 solid from Chet Herbert, .245 int and 255 ex. @ .050. Lift is .550 int. and 575ex 108. Headers are 1" 7/8. with 3" collector and 3" exaust pipes. Carb is holley 3310 750vac. Old ignition is Hayes stinger. Car idles at 850rpm.

1st run with performer manifold....

MAX POWER at 5800 rpm.....346
MAX TORQUE @3800 rpm.....339

2nd run with the famous Holley Strip Dominator and Proform carb center body <$99 from Jegs>

MAX POWER @ 6600 rpm.....364
MAX TORQUE @ 5300 rpm....321

3rd run with ParkerRacing Funnelweb 2. and intake port stuffers. No jet changes.

MAX POWER @ 6700 rpm.....380
MAX TORQUE @ 5200 rpm....341

The fuel curve was near perfect on all 3 runs but the ignition was eratic above 6ooorpm, it's years old. Also on the funnelweb run the secondaries weren't opening properly. I feel sure there's over 400 at the wheels with 750 double pumper and new ignition. Not bad for a non stroker thats done many laps at Willow Springs and has 15k hard street miles also.
So the famous strip dominator was a bit of a dud. The torque curve on the funnelweb was almost flat from 3000-6000.
The new funnelweb 3 is even better. Anybody want to buy a polished funnelweb 2 please e mail me.

I truely believe different motors will not respond the same to different intakes. Maybe the funnelweb is better for a motor in a street/strip car that isnt real radical that needs more low-mid range power. But after my personal experiance with a strip dominator on my higher rpm race motor, I have a hard time believing any "off the shelf" intake will out perform it with my current motor combo.

I agree with kid. The all out race engine almost requires a strip dominator. I tried em all with the cleveland I raced and the strip dominator out-performed all by a good margin.

Just my .02
