A buddy of mine has one on his car which is a 347 stroker and he loves it. Can't run the stock hood though. I have the SSI-R intake which takes some of my bottom end and pushes more top. From what I understand there's really only one prob with the SSI, but the SSI should be fine with what your running. It's also up to u to decide for certain what you want and what kind of money you wanna spend.

I haven't ran across any negative reads about them. What did you find?


Take a look at the Edelbrock RPM II.
Really good flow specs and it's a good looking intake.

Something about oil inside the lower intake is what I've been told and witnessed but idk fir certain if that's the actual problem or just not enough silicon on the plate that bolts to the lower intakes underside.

Ok, Thanks.


Oil inside the lower is likely a leak around one or more of the intake runners.
With the engine warmed up and running hard there is lots of oil vapor in there and any small leak will pull it into the intake.

I googled"reviews on bbk intakes" came up with different sites. I research parts I get or got, an have one on car when got it, but lower end wasn't done, so really couldn't judge off that too much. Engine getting rebuilt as we type(lol) with everything mention above wanted to make sure it was good for it.

Bad PCV valve or bad piston rings.

Then it's likely the rings may not have seated in yet and compression is blowing past them and pressurizing the crankcase.
What oil did you put in it?
If you used a synthetic it may take it a lot longer to seat the rings.

Should have left the Lucas out.
It's too slick and will cause the engine to take much longer to seat the rings.


Change it out and just use some regular 5W30 only.
Run it for about 500 miles and change it out again.
After 2-3000 miles if the rings have seated in, then you can use the additive or synthetic oil.

So you think it is the rings not seated? Should I wait to worry about oil in there an just drive it?

I'd change it out as I described in my post above.
Otherwise it is hard telling how long the rings may take to seat.
It's your choice though, do however you wish.
