That was back when Edelbrock just didn't like the Fords, they hated us Twisted Evil

Looks like a torquer 289 widened to fit a 460. It might work good from off idle to 2500............ Laughing

It is strictly for gas mileage ... it is like the early Torquer except it has even narrower runners . Terrible above 4,000 RPM.

Frank, Frank, Frank, you know it's all about matching the combination. It only works with 1 3/8 primary tubes on the headers Razz

Point taken, I just couldn't find any info out there on it. It looks like the grandfather of the Torquer.

Or with a factory exhaust system in a pick-up used strictly for towing a trailer around the country.
Otherwise ... forget it.

You never got back in-touch with me last year! Good thing though, I lost my job a couple of months later!

Killed 6 so far and let no telling how many king snakes pass. 1 gator ran me out of one swamp and one small group of wild bores.

It is a lot of fun, just doesn't pay. I'm a EA1 with the state and pay is only minimum wage. (Actually took a pay decrease from unemployment.) I have been trying to get on a land rig with H&P in Montana. I hope my friend can find out if he can get me on his next hitch. They have been firing teenagers left and right.

Already have my Twic card for off shore, just can't find anyone with the pull to get me on. (Everyone gives me their name to put on the application but thats as far as they go.)

Wasted $200 to have a man write my resume that would help draw attention specifically for oil rigs. I think it's because I'm 36 and not a lot of manual labor for a job. Even though I'm 6'5 350lbs and can military press 200lbs as many times as I want.
