I am going to be needing an other intake manifold , I have a strip dominator and a Torquer but they are both on an engine, my tunnel ram is not practical for this setup, I was wondering if it is worth tring The Weiand, I can pick one up for cheep. Is there much power loss compaired to a torquer.

I am running the Excelerator, and prefer it over the torker. The Weiand creates less turbulance since the runners curve to the port on the head, rather than the Torkers straight shot approach. That said, I have not done a side by side run with them, but I like the Weiand piece better.

That is what I was looking for acording to that both intakes hold there own To 6500 rpm! I had herd a rumer that the Weiand singal plain for the Cleveland was not vary good! The engine will be aimed at more torque than top end horse power so i think the Weiand should work just fine.

"should be 471 not 451"

At that torque and RPM it would only be 451.

If it droped to 451 it wouldn't be back to 480 250 rpm higher. Engine follow a curve power don't jump up and down it continues constant until it peeks then fals off.
