I just have a quick question before I install the Edelbrock RPM intake I got for X-mas...heat riser block-off tabs...should I block off or leave it unblocked? The Weiand intake I have on there now is blocked off,but I can't tell a difference either way.
I want to keep as much heat as possible away from the intake,but I'll also be using a 1" phenolic 4-hole spacer.Any preferences about..."to block or not to block,that is the question"...

Heck yea, I'd block them off. Less heat the better up there, even with the spacer
