What is the best intake manifold for this 340 engine:
1971 340 Duster engine with Edelbrock/Carter 600cfm carb, aluminum heads(non ported) stock compression (10.5:1) Mopar Purple Cam hydraulic 248 duration,.508 lift, Hooker comp headers, 391 rear gear ratio. Had a Weiand on it for 20 years & looking to get the best aluminum for this setup.
On 15 inch rims with 275's in rear & 235's up front. Streetable with possible drag strip every now & again. Thanks for any help, Jo

Either a LD340 or the Edlebrock RPM Air Gap are great intakes.

LD340 Save some $$ and be happy with the performance too.
LD340 equiped:


Clean it, if it's Dirty. Oil it, if it Squeaks. But: Don't fix it, if it Works!

Air Gap and get a Thermoquad, you'll love it and all the stock stuff works on them.
