I used one on a 468 big block and surprise, it worked really well. I've heard similar comments from other guys that they liked it better than many of the single plane manifolds. Better torque was the common comment. You can probably run a little less gear. A good 1050, 3 circuit Carb Shop dominator was what I used.

Great intake for smaller inch engines. We did a test against a Team G when they first came out, it was a .03 difference. 2600# Camaro, Lenco 4-speed, 5.13 gear, closed chamber 427, Crane roller, running 9-teens @ 151 Put one on a similar 427, flat tappet, TH-400, 5.13's back half Camaro, about 3400#, running mid 10's

Yes, that is correct. Take a look at the Edelbrock 7163, which is a current dual plane Rectangle Port BBC intake, (although I don't know if they make one with a Dominator flange). It has the plenum divider cut down on it, I believe all of the Performer RPM manifolds do. And you know they did a ton of testing to determine that was a worthwhile modification, otherwise they wouldn't spend the money to machine them that way. A lot of the old race engine shops used to do that mod for guys, before you could buy them that way.

LOL No, It's going on my car as we speak, I really appreciate all the reviews plus a lot I gathered. I'll let you know after Bakersfield how it works. Some said it idles very smooth and more consistent.

I've been using mine since 1981 mostly with a 9375 1050 4500. 12:1 433 BBC solid roller 702 lift 262/270 @.050. T400 trans, 4.88 12 bolt and almost 3,000 lbs with me and some ballast. 9.650 qtr and 6.04 1/8. Dynoed some single plane stuff in the mid 80's and no difference.

That is very surprising and impressive.

This overestimation occurs as a result of the fact that they do not have enough knowledge to know they don't have enough knowledge.
Before you argue with someone ask yourself, "Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of a different perspective?" If not there is no point to argue.
