I have an '87 Chevy with 350 TBI. I know I want the Edelbrock Performer intake. But I don't know if I want to get a high rise version or the regular version. What are the pros and cons of each version.

RPM version(highrise) More top end power<br>Performer(low) more torque.<br>The RPM is great for torque to though, and you are running tpi(good valocity) so go with the RPM

I agree with Doug. Go with the RPM. It's a Performer, so it's dual plane design. Exactly what you want. Either choice would work fine. Now if you said you wanted to put a Torker, or Torker 2, I'd say no. That is a single plane design, meant for top end power. If you were building a strip / street car, you'd want a single plane. That is something many people overlook, when buying a new manifold, single or dual plane.<p>~Chuck<p>----------<br>Chuck's Chevy Truck Pages - Snowplowing Central<br>http://www.chuckschevytruckpages.com/snowplowingcentral.html
