Best carbureted intake with trick flow heads?

I just installed trick flow 170cc heads on my 302 mustang and would like some input on intake selection! I sold the air gap knock off I had because it was a single plane and I want a dual plane. I stayed with the b-cam in sig but went with 1.72 rockers. Right now the two I'm looking at are the edelbrock 7121 performer rpm vs weiand Stealth 8020. Does anyone have any experience with either or? I wanted to get the edelbrock air gap 7521 but didnt want to spend $250 on it unless there is a noticeable hp increase over the others. If it helps I have a 4" cowl hood so clearance isn't a issue! Please help I need to order my intake asap!

Possibly but I think with the right cam and carb it will be fine. I run mine with a set off trick flows. It makes great power and isn't a dog down low like you would expect. Although, I do plan to port the heads next time they come off.

Re: Best carbureted intake with trick flow heads?

dude , its like night and day on the street dual plane to a single , if you swap them out one after the other ( witch I've done before ) the single is a dog down low , sorry thats a fact ...... for his set up ,heads,cam ,the single plane just doesn't make any sense ??
of coarse top end power the single will win out but from idle to about 4,500 the dual will KILL the single in torque and HP / and from 4,500 up to about 5,500 the single will take over but not by a ton, then from 5,500 on the single will Kill the dual , but his cam and head's aren't made for high rpm ... unless your car's a race car stick with the dual plane ,you won't regret it ............

It totally depends on you're set up. I have driven a lit of dual and single plane cars. I have had both on my car. I love the funnel web for power, it makes great power but without the right camshaft it would be worthless.

Your right though, with his set up a dual plane would be better. I guess I didn't read the original post our something
