AFR's on the way what's everyone's favorite intake?

AFR's on the way what's everyone's favorite intake?

This is for a 331 turbo car. Going to run low boost. I'm actually "trying" not to go above 475 at the wheels. Seriously

I really am leaning towards a GT40 Tubular.

Gt40 tubular is a good intake. But the cobra I.take flows pretty similar and can be ported down the road if you want. But personally I'm a fan of trickflow. Either way the gt40 will suit your needs and looks cool to.

Oh btw congrats man. I can't wait to here that your safely on the road again! Did you get the big combustion chamber afrs?

Yep, I got a set of "used" 185's with the 72cc, perfect for what I need. My engine will make block splitting power regardless of intake so maybe I should just go for cool

I'm about to order an Edelbrock Performer RPM II intake now as well. I almost have everything I need.

On a stock motor at that. Maybe more on a boosted 331

Yeah, my tuner told me I'm going to have a hard time keeping it under 450, but I will try. I don't have supporting trans and sub frame hardware to comfortably go much over that.

My choices for your build would be the Edelbrock Performer RPM II , or the Holley Systemax. I believe I read a while back that they are both close in flow and HP gains. Don't quote me on that though, I read so much that sometimes I get things confused.


I considered both for my engine, but ended up going with the Victor because I got a really good deal on it and it will support more HP down the road. Now I'm on the fence about keeping my Edelbrock RPM heads or selling them and getting a pair of Victor heads. Decisions, decisions.

Nice!
You're going to have to build you a garage so you can tinker with your toy year round.

Dammit, I'm in Central MO, not that far away. I wish I had full use of my arms, back and hands. I could do that for you if I did.

Ditto, not too far. I don't have a space to do it anymore since August.

Do you think my 42lb injectors are good for 450-500hp? I can buy new ones but these only have maybe 300 miles on them.

Yeah, sadly I know how things go sometimes.
I really do wish I could help you with it, I wouldn't even charge for it to help a friend out.

I may try and rent a space, but it would most likely be easier/cheaper to just hire it out.

Ok, I found the injector sizing calculator I was looking for - RC Fuel Injection


It appears that the 42's will be pretty much maxed out at 450 HP, but they should serve for you to get it up and running ok. Then if you find out you need more after a good tuning you can replace them with some larger ones.


I have a new set of Siemens 60 lb. I'm going to use in my engine. If you get in a spot and need some I can loan them to you or we can work out something. I won't need them for a little while anyways.

I'm about 2 hours away, but I would love to help if I wasn't working so much. If you can't find anywhere close let me know.

Great find. Those are lighter at the tip than aluminum and much stronger too.
