Re: Edelbrock intake and carb adapter
As I have posted in the past... Look at the lower intake.
You'll notice the ports on the driver(?) side IIRC, are smaller than the passenger side. I called Edelbrock tech line and they said that through their research and flow bench, they discovered that the 60 V6 had an inherent flow problem.
They eliminated the problem by changing the port size.
I am guessing that this intake will improve performance with any gas mixer. TBI, 390 Holley, Weber or whatever.
BTW Manx, you must have had a lemon 390. I have 2 3.4s in 2 different trucks, the 390 works super on both of them.
The Voodoo truck sits for months at a time, I get in it, wait for the e pump to fill the system, pump twice and the truck starts instantly!!
It takes a minute for it to warm up (HUGE cam) but it works amazingly well. Gas mileage sort of sux though...
