I have one on my 377 Cleveland. Works great. With 4V heads, 250/257 .622/.647 @108, 850DP, 2" headders and 3" exhaust got 400RWHP at 6800rpm. Recently changed the cam to a 249/258 .617/.628 @105 and saw a good increase in midrange. Seems the Clevelands like tight lobe centres even with welded ports.

Here's my biased opinion, if it's a racecar, stick with a proven intake. Buy a Strip Dominator.

Wauseon is in the northwest part of the state at exit 3 on the ohio turnpike.Kid I think that the strip dominator is a great intake I was told that it is a .10 faster than the funnelweb . I hate to pay almost $400.00 for a intake on e-bay thats almost 30 years old But not ruling that out!

I don't blame you.
I got lucky when I bought mine. It had one of the throttle bracket mounts broke off, so I only paid $200 for it. It was unported then, but it's not now. But it does work fantastically.

The carbis an old BG carb. They converted it to alcohol about 10 yrs ago. It flows 920 cfm. I run .136 jets in front, and .180 jets in back. No power valves in either side, no plugs either, just big open holes. The carb also has the bowl extensions for extra fuel capacity.

I run Autolite AR133 plugs or AR134's (depending on what I can get), gapped as they come from the box, .025. Right now I have the timing set at 42* total, but it runs better with about 45 or 46 degrees total in it. But I'm trying to soften the launch a little to make it a little more consistent. I'm thinking of bumping the timing back to 38* now.

Your cam is close to mine. Mine is a Lunati solid roller that is 262/274 @ .050 with a 104 center and .650/.650 lift (but I have 1.6 rockers on the exhuast for .605 lift for valve to piston clearance). I also currently have it installed 2* retarded for more valve to piston clearance.

If you want to know anything else, feel free to ask. You'll be suprised at how "plain" my motor is.

I have a new but never tried Parker Funnelweb III (the latest)sitting around, but there is nothing wrong with the Strip Dominator.
If Holley of their new owners would ever reproduce this intake, it would be a no brainer at $225 or so. The TFC is supposed to be a good intake but it is very tall.
I'm not sure any of the "reduced port Volume" ( Parker, TFC, Active)intakes will make much difference in a serious drag car that leaves the line above 4500 (like Kids).
I'm pretty sure the reduced port volume intakes would help an autocross type car or other application that needed lower end power/respose.
The Cleveland Forum had a guy that did a test of a bunch of popular intakes, and there was not a ton of difference between them.
