Edelbrock High Riser Intake???

Today i was talking to one of my junkyard buddys and he offered me an Edelbrock Alum. High Riser 427 Intake for an FE.... On the manifold was the letters F or FB i couldn't tell.... But the word 'Edelbrock' was very plane and easy to see. He told me he would give it to me for $200... its used and would be goin on a 352/360.

What do you guys think? Yes or No? To me i was thinking that i can get a brand new Edelbrock performer 390 out of the box for $239.88..... I mean common! In my mind a used one should be at least half of what a new one is worth, unless a'corse there is something unique and special about this intake...... Any and All info is Welcomed and Appreciated!

Thanx for readin!

intake

the intake is a good one. in the end this old intake will still be worth 150/200 whereas the perf will only bring a 100 just my take. be sure the bolt holes are good. subtract 10 for each bad one.

All hi rise manifolds are single plain design and do not perform well below 3,000rpms. This makes them not street friendly although people still run them. The performer series manifolds are designed for the street and would be the better choice. Also if the hi rise was designed for the 427 Engine you will have port matching problems as the manifold will have larger ports than your 352 heads.

I will concur with that. High rise just means high rise.

I am not a fan of the Performer manifolds. I would only use the Performer RPMs. You get more than enough bottom end with the RPM manifolds. I have seen articles saying the RPMs actually make more low RPM torque.

Don't buy that manifold from that guy. If you want to get one of those that bad there will be one on Ebay. If not, wait a week and check again.

I knew that word "All" was going to bit me in the ***. I was going to use the word "Most". I think of Tunnel rams as High risers but I thought about that while out in the garage working and a high riser isn't a tunnel ram and can be single or dual plane... So I stand corrected.

I like the RPM manifolds better also but have a Performer on my 351m in my 53 Ford and it's good on a mild street engine. I have a Performance plus Crosswind (Air Gap clone) on the 350 in my Vette and really like how it looks and works.
