Ford fe intakes

I have a fe engine that was in a 63 galaxie I got a few months ago. It had been sitting in a shop for years when I got it. It ran but not that well. Since I have got it I have done alot of work to it and have learned quite a bit about the engine. It is a new engine. Cam/lifters are new, double roller timing chain, bored, new pistons and very clean on the inside. Question is I am looking at swapping intakes because the old one seems to leaking at the gaskets. What is a good intake to run? It has a weiand on it now.

Sometimes I feel like a one-trick pony, but I swear, I don't think you can beat an Edelbrock RPM on a street or street-strip motor. Playing with my DynoSim, I can make more power with it than ANY other manifold.

Weiand makes a multitude of intake manifolds and I don't know which one you have or intend to get. What I'm saying here is that a dual-plane, high-rise 4-bbl intake will make more power than any other manifold from idle to 6000.

For you small block Chevy guys,
The original Weiand Stealth, which they don't make any more, was an equal to the RPM, part number 8016. Here is an ad on Amazon for it and one on ebay. They must have found a stash of old stock somewhere. Any of you SBC guys wanting an original Stealth to fit '55 to '86 heads should jump on this....
http://www.amazon.com/Weiand-8016-Cl.../dp/B000CQDJ8C
http://compare.ebay.com/like/2005911...=263602_325002
Also, the original Holley 300-36 was possibly the best of breed and it isn't made any longer either. Don't be snookered into purchasing the 300-36S, it is NOT the same manifold.
The Edelbrock RPM 7101, Weiand Stealth 8016 and Holley Street Dominator 300-36 were all patterned after the dual-plane, high-rise used on the Z-28's and LT-1's of the late 60's and early 70's. Those original aluminum Chevy manifolds were cast by the Winters Foundry and will have the Winters "snowflake" cast into the aluminum. If you can find one of these, you have the original "good guy" small block intake.

Professional Products makes a knock-off of this design also, called the Typhoon and sold under part numbers 52021 for satin, 52020 for polished and 52022 for chromed.

Edelbrock 7105 is what I would use. Weiand 7282 is a single plane, looks like the old Streetmaster from years ago.

Watch ebay for an Edelbrock Streetmaster intake they are probably the best ever all around intake for an FE The standard Performer I give a thumbs down.The WEIAND is also a great intake a close check of the mating surfaces should be in order to find out why it leaks if a minor resurfacing would repair it I would use it unless it has already been resurfaced,check the old gasket imprint closely.

How well does the streetmaster work down low? This is not a race car just a play toy cruiser.

leaking gaskets

leaking gaskets is sometimes a sign that the heads were milled and that the intake surfaces were not or that the block was decked. there are formula's that use the angles of the various surfaces to determine the amount to mill off the intake.

The Streetmaster came out at the time of the Jimmy Carter "Gas Crisis" by it's long narrow runners it increased low end torque and mid-range power and in most cases was a key to increasing MPG usually 2-3 MPG on the 70's smogger 360 & 390 FE's and the tried and true Holley 1850 600 CFM was the carb of choice in that era.For an FE street machine I don't think you could ask for a better choice now that $4 a gallon gas is back.
