    Intakes??

    I found this Victor intake on ebay, I thought it would have been great for me. It frees up some of my design restrictions (IE my windshield wiper setup).



    Does anyone know of an intake that is simillar to this one but designed for a little bit more mild engine? That Victor intake is for 450-750hp @ 4000-8000RPM, so installing it on our engines would be a total waste, and a decreas in overall performance. To be honest this intake would work if I could down size the intake runners, they are just way too big and would decrease the rate of flow for an HO engine.

    the powerband for edelbrock intakes go like this (i believe)
    from lowest to highest

      Yeah, I know that. What I am looking for is an intake with the physical size if the Victor intake. However, I don't want a block intake, those lose a lot of low end torque. Intakes like the Prformer series are the same size as a stock intake plenum.

        if you go to a smaller intake with shorter runners you will raise the power band. short runners are designed for high rpm use

                    Only if you fill the ports of the intake up with JB weld and small nuts and berries first.

                      ported lower or systemax 1 for a stock/mild HO motor. Next small step would be the explorer

                        Power gain isnt the goal here. I'm not looking for more power. I need more space!!

                        See how far into the windshield motor the intake is now, I need an intake that don't have that problem.

                          That is why you flip the intake to face the drivers' side. Ditch that SN95/T-bird intake and get one you can flip.

                            And I'll lose power, because the 94-95 intake is better than 86-93.

                              i noticed at scottfest that there is 2 different wiper motors the big early ne like you have and then there is a smaller one that scott and thaines town car had on them, if they work that is an option for you. and if you go with a smaller intake (physically) you will lose low end torque, but you will gain high-end power
