Ken. It's a good mod only if you like to spin your motor up to and over 7k from the many threads I have seen about this. I would take a look at some of those before you do it. Lots of great info already out there

Is this a daily driver or weekend toy? Are you okay with torque loss in the lower RPM range(1500-3500) to benefit your horsepower in the higher RPM range(5000+)? You have to rev the Boss manifold high to see the benefits. Up to 7500rpm.

I have a Cobra Jet setup on my car, and while I love the top end at 7750rpm, I don't care for the torque loss around 2000rpm when cruising.

That's the name of the game when you switch from long intake runners to short runners on these highrise style manifolds.

It's my daily currently but I barely use it during the week due to a company vehicle. I I'm not used of shifting it over 6k rpms unless I want to play but I will adjust quickly if the power is worth it.

If you're not willing to shift at 7500-7600 rpm minimum then it's not for you. And the stock clutch won't like that rpm at all.
