Edelbrock Torker Intake Manifold

I need some info before I purchase one of these for my Pontiac 455. Can any one give me the pros and cons of a (Polished) Torker manifold vs Torker cast one. Or, is it not worth the extra money. Which one is better?

Thanks for any help. Appreciate it

Tony

the only difference, and what your paying for is looks, the polished one performs no different than the plain one.

Internally polished? or externally polished? The "Torker 2" is a better intake then the Torker.

I have found that if your going to run a Torker use a spreadbore carb. I have found they seal better that the squarebore carb. I run an 800 spreadbore on the Torker on my 400 in my 71 GTO and have no complaints. The Torker II is a good manifold but only has the squarebore bolt pattern so if you decide to run a q-jet you'll need an adapter.

Torker 2

How does this manifold perform on the street? I bought one today at a swap meet for $35 fits a small block Chevy.

This thread is 11 years old. Instead of asking on a old thread why not just start a new one?

It's a single plane which means it is going to run better at high rpms. Short answer is no, not good for the street. You want a dual plane.
