Just some shots of Edelbrock RPM Air-Gap 7566 - and my older Victor Bigblock

Just some pics and close ups of the intake / cast marks.

Also only a 2 from early Victor single plane. (the dirty looking ones)

Did not think the runner ports would be opened up already compared to the old Victor.

Another note on the height, for some reason i was thinking the Victor was taller when I looked at the specs, but thing looks huge in height.... hood clearance fun I expect Shocked

That came up real nice . I have found the RPM Airgap awesome . That old intake is one of the original Torker style isn't it with the small ports rather than a Victor?

yes turned out good was not even one can, around 3 good coat's - cleaned it twice before apply tape and after just before paint. Did the cutting of tape slow cloase as possible to edges to make it clean and less overspray cleanup. Taped up the head face sides also as over-spray covered bit of this also...

Yes the old Victor, really surprised on the port size... guess back then you did the opening up yourself ? But I also thought velocity is as important not just volume ?

Not had a chance to place them side by side to compare heights, just hope its not alot for clearance issues.. but the air-gap does look good hope it works well like you say !

thanks

That old intake looks more like a Torker (not Torker II) intake. Does it say Victor on it? Just based on the photos, I think you're going to see a big power increase above 3500 or so.

Some people just have to have an aluminum intake, no matter how it performs, so you probably won't have a problem finding a buyer at $50.00 or so.

I did use one of those intakes about 20 years ago on a motor I built for a Bronco. It worked ok but definitely picked up when swapped out to an RPM Performer down the track a bit . My understanding was the small ports were for trucks etc??
