With my Performer RPM I had to use a 1/2" carb spacer instead of a 1" carb spacer like I originally wanted and a drop base air cleaner to get hood clearance on a '67 Satellite. So if the SD allows you to use a 1" carb spacer and an air cleaner that isn't drop base, maybe that gives you the performance edge?

Looking back, it does come off as possibly sarcasm, which I actually do from time to time. But I am serious. You have enough motor where an SD would be okay IMO. I personally would still prefer a dual plane, and you will give some up in the lower rpm range, but considering your constraints of TQ and flat hood, overall probably an okay choice.

cool. I went ahead and ordered the SD. I was thinking seriously about switching to a holley so i could use the performer RPM even though i know nothing about a holley., but figured i would try the SD and if not happy i could re-sell it and go the other route, but i have not heard any negatives about using the SD so will give it a try.

A wise chose, cause I don't think the performer RPM will fit under your Dart's flat hood with the RB 440.

Holley Street Dominator! Mine fits under the stock hood and does a great job.

See sig for proof.

I also have the SD. Second car I have had one on. Both with eddy heads. My current engine dynode at 554.7 hp, 545 tq. Pretty sure it may have a little more in it. I was worried about height on my 71 as it has an airgrabber hood. I didn't use the original air cleaner, but still have it. Kevin

Port the intake. Bobby (Streetwize) did mine and it picked up a .10 in the quarter.

I thought about that but the heads are not ported, so if the intake is bigger than the head ports, wont that cause interference with airflow?

I am so mad at myself i could bite a 440 in half right now! This whole intake deal, as i said, i really wanted a performer RPM but it would be too tall to fit under my flat hood and i didnt want to cut my hood. The hood WAS perfect, until today. I ended up getting the street dominator. I installed it today and i set the carb on top of the intake to make sure it would clear the hood. I lowered the hood and it hit the air cleaner stud and it put a dent in the damn hood! The dent sticks up about the size of that stud and of course it cracked the paint. Seems like every time i work on this car i screw something up. Just makes me sick!

I'm sorry to hear about your hood and understand about how these cars can torture us. Here's a picture of the hood of my 65 Corvette 30 miles after a complete 3 year frame off restoration. A acorn hit the hood and windshield so hard I ducked thinking it was going to break. I didn't even know it hit the hood since it hit the windshield so hard. I was afraid to get out and check the stainless trim thinking it might be damaged. It was only after being happy to see the trim wasn't damaged did I see the chip in the hood. My heart broke and I remember telling the gal that was with me "I guess God doesn't want me to have anything nice".
