Opinions on this Weiand intake?

Hello, all! What's your opinion on the Weiand 8020 stealth intake? I am not trying to make terribly big power, maybe like 300 to the flywheel.

I know of a few chevy guys that run weiand intakes and are happy with them, one runs a weiand supercharger, but if 300 flywheel hp is what your shooting for i would go with gt40 heads and intake and there are many cam choices you could go with. That should get you close to 300 and you could probably get the gt40 intake cheaper than the weiand.

I love it. One of the best carbureted intakes made for a street driven car IMO.

I like the fact that it starts working almost right off idle and goes all the way to 6k or farther. I had one on a mildly built 429 years ago and it performed great.

Re: Opinions on this Weiand intake?

Thank you so much guys! See, we're building a fox but I wanted it to be a tad faster than stock! Does this intake seem to be a good choice for daily driving?

Yes, as I stated before I think it works very well on a street driven car, DD or otherwise and it's capable of supporting well over the 300 HP you seek.

i have the carbed intake. and it is really nice. the best part is the power band is from idle to 6500. so it makes it perfect for street use.

Thank goodness! And here I was thinking it was a budget intake or something. Awesome. Can you carb guys also recommend me a fuel pump? I'm using a 650 Holley double pumper. 4 bbl, I believe.
