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

Cool Christmas gift!
