Intake manifold thoughts

Post  ctdck on May 13th 2017, 12:20 pm

I have a intake thats either a cobra jet or a super cobra jet not for sure its the 4 hole carb pad not the spread bore the part number is DOOE-9425-C the date 3M14. How would this intake besides the weight compare to the Weiand stealth intake manifold permanence wise? thanks for your thoughts

I would run the SCJ you have over the Stealth on that deal. The CJ was a spread bore by the way. The claim is usually 20-25 HP just bolting it on over a stock intake.

supervel45 thanks

I also have a brand new edelbrock performer intake, but id like to keep this thing looking stock. If this would be better yet maybe I can grind the edelbrock and performer off it and paint it ford blue and nobody would notice, usually what I hear around here from the shitty guys is if you arent cheating you arent winning. Hmmmmm

I like my SCJ intake, it looks like a stock 460 piece to 90% of people and likely runs better then a Performer. I would not even trade it for a Performer RPM Air Gap if that tells you anything but I just like parts that say Ford.

I'd run the performer. It will out torque the SCJ intake by some 20+ pound feet and if you run a jomar power cone it will match it or best it at peak HP. More average power = better acceleration, tip in response and driving feel. RM uses the term transient response and I absolutely agree with him !

As with any aluminum intake block the heat crossover unless very cold weather operation is expected. In that case restrict if to 5/16" hole.

I am building an N code 429 for a 1970 torino at the moment. Client insisted on 429 crank and OEM external look with internal upgrade freedoms. With the eddy logo ground off and sitting under an air cleaner housing one has to look twice.
