I have been getting my 69 GTS 340 ready for the summer. The engine is a .030 over 340. It has a 600 Eddy carb and a mild hydraulic cam. Anyone use one of these intakes on a small block? I have either 3.23 gears or 3.55...My wife turned the tire while I counted driveshaft rotations so the accuracy may be off a bit! Thanks! Ted wave

I have one on a solid cam 318-392 stroker/850 brawler and with 4:56 gears and mild vert it works great but all the research ive done seems to point its a better intake for my type setup vs your mild setup with it being a single plane intake.

Many are going to say the current $450 edelbrock air gap is the way to go or as much as I hate to say it the $150 china man air gap would work just as well. Or even a factory cast iron 4bbl intake.


STOP POTATO HATE!

The Chinese air gap is a copy of the LD4B with 318 sized runners so I would shy away from it.


1970 Duster
Edelbrock headed 408
5.984@112.52
422 Indy headed small block
5.982@112.56 mph
9.42@138.27

Livin and lovin life one day at a time

Thanks fellas! I have the factory intake for it and maybe I should put that back on. I wouldn't mind an LD 340 but looked a few up on the bag and had sticker shock!! shock

I've got one I'd let go if you don't already have one. You can come have a look at it if you want.

I put one on a mild stock headed 360 with a 3310. Worked great 3.55 gears 11 inch converter and looked awesome.

Performer RPM seems to be a good all purpose intake for a street driven hot rod. I had a car that came with a Performer that I later changed to a Performer RPM and I liked how it felt the first time I drove it.

I have one that I gasket matched for my 340/420 combo. It may be a little small, but the TF Track Heat unit is never in stock when I search for it.

We used to bore the primary side openings on stock intakes and slip a 440 AVS on. great for street racing back in the day as it looked stock 🙄🤣🤑🤑

Those old small plenum single plane intake manifolds such as the Weiand Accelerator and Edelbrock Torker are a great high perf intake manifold. Not recommended for low comp, no cam duration smog engines. Vut with good comp, gutsy cam, some gears and appropriate stall (or 4 speed) and they are right at home. I say run it and see. If you must - and have the $$ you can try an RPM or RPM Air Gap- or Weiand Air Strike or etc.


Keep old mopars alive.
