I have an old edelbrock performer intake. I would like to identify the specs for it but i cant find the casting number. i know its a performer but i want to know if its an older design or one of the newer ones
Vette(s): 1969 convertible L71 427/435 4-speed black interior
If I remember, the basic difference between the old Performer and the current one is the older has larger size runners. Edelbrock said the new design with smaller diameter runners increases fuel charge velocity for better combustion efficiency. Whether there's a practical, real world difference I have no idea, but Edelbrock does make great stuff.
