    Default Which intake

    355 sbc with dart 200cc heads. Forged bottom end with some pistons. 12.5:1 compression. Cam is around a .570 lift. (Canít remember exact numbers without my cam card.) 2 barrel 500 cfm carb. We have a 7,000 rpm rule in our class. Which intake would be the best all around for this combination?

    The Brodix catalogue in front of me would say BM1000 is a good fit.

    Specs I looked up for that intake show an RPM range of 4000-8000. Wouldnít that kill my lower end torque coming off the corner since I have to run a 7000 RPM limit?

    Edelbrock 2901 manifold is hard to beat if you're limited to a two barrel and 7,000 rpm. I've built several engines close to what you have and the 2901 is near perfect for them. It also has 4 corner water outlets if cooling is any problem.

    we have had very good success in the range your looking for with the edelbrock air gap , the last one we bought was on E-Bay for under 200 bucks .....

    I see what your saying. It's just what the book states. Maybe a call would be better.
    Maybe the book is based on drag stuff, where drivable is less important.

    I think there should be lifeguards in the genepool.
