Does anyone know which intake - the Edelbrock Performer RPM or the Weiand Stealth shows bigger numbers on a 302? I'm running a hydraulic roller with about 228/234 degrees of duration at .05. Flat tops and Windsor Jr. heads. All in an '86 GT with a T5.

Any idea if either of these intakes will clear a stock hood with something like a drop-based Ford Motorsport air cleaner?

Thanks, Todd

it should be ok. I have a 460 in a 93 coupe
with a victor intake on it and I can almost
use a stock hood. I dont know about the air cleaner but I think it will be ok.
not trying to tell you what to do but it
sounds like you need a bigger camshaft
something like 240s or 250s at 50 with like
540s to 560s in lift if im wright that sounds
like a motorsport's cam maby a e303 or an x
any way I think most will agree if you go with that intake and your heads with flat tops it will need a bit more cam in my openioun. thank you Jeremy

I would go with the Weiand Stealth, I have ran all 4 intakes, Edelbrock RPM, Weiand Stealth, air gap and Victor Jr. The best dual plane intake is the air gap. All of them except for the victor jr will fit under a stock hood. The Victor will fit only if you have lowered motor mounts

Are you suggesting the Weiand manifold based on performance level or hood clearance? It sounds like you're promoting the Performer RPM Air-Gap as the best "performing" of the dual-plane intakes...

Thanks, Todd

I have tried the Performer rpm and Weiand action plus with a one inch spacer and noticed no difference.
