Default Eric what's your thoughts on a TM1 Edelbrock on a

Eric
I'm looking to get a little more out of my 302 basically stock with headers and more of a Day 2 look. Currently it's the original Z intake . Do you think I'll be hurting power?


It's in a 69 with a 5 speed 3.27 first gear so low end torque isn't a big issue

Have you ran your 302 again

Dan;

The factory intake is tough to beat. If you're willing to trade some power down low for some power upstairs, milling the plenum divider helps. You might consider picking up a service intake to modify so you don't have to carve on a `69 unit.

Most of the older intakes aren't really much of an improvement--they were still in their developmental infancy back then. There are a few exceptions though--the old-school Holley Strip Dominator was an outstanding piece that's still a great piece today. There are a few different versions, I'll have to get you the #'s later.

Speaking of which, I have a Strip Dominator to test on my 302 soon. I was days away from getting it back on the dyno again last year, but an unexpected garage door failure and the Chevelle developing an appetite for driveline parts mandated a change of financial priorities.

Barring any more unforeseen SNAFU's, this should be an "interesting" season on the dyno for me.

Stay tuned. [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/wink.gif[/img] [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/biggthumpup.gif[/img]

The Holley intake I have to try on my 302 is the 300-25
