Re: Intake manifold?
Compared to the stock "pancake" intake, the regular Performer is an unbelievable performance piece. With a mild cam and good exhaust, that's what I would go with on a mostly stock 454. The RPM is only better above 4500 rpm which is pretty much where most stock 454's are done anyhow.
And it should fit more easily under more hoods. I have a mild 427 with 291 heads (large oval, 100cc) destined for a short bed truck and that's what I spent my money on FWIW.
