Default Edelbrock vs. Stock intake

Hi everyone. My question is this: performance wise, how does an Edelbrock aluminum intake (Performer or other), compare against a factory 327/300 intake. I may grow tired someday of looking and/or paying a high price for the factory one and just settle for the Edelbrock. Want to make sure I'm not making a performance mistake. Many thanks, Carmine.

If I recall right Some magazine maybe hot rod made intake shootout between gm and performer and some other dual planes. Conclusion was that edelbrock was slightly better but the thing is that performer is designed for 350 engine and runner volume is abit larger. I would say differences are marginal at best.

OK. Thanks. Should have mentioned that whatever intake a get, it will go on to my .030 over 265, 097 Duntov solid cam which will have '64 327/250 heads that were worked some. Not sure that matters, Carmine.

I think that matters...you should look for smallest possible runner size intake. You also need pretty decent CR with that combo. Small diameter tri-y headers would also work good.

I once made 305 driver with edelbrock 2sp (it was four barrel intake though ) manifold, that intake would work really good, if you can find one...its all about velocity.

I agree. I don't think you will see any difference especially on the street. The 327 iron intake would fit the vintage look better than a performer too.
