Any dual plane intake like the edelbrock performer will make more low end power than a open plane intake. But a 302 isn`t exactly a low end torque monster to start with so if it don`t have some gears to help it out, then going with a dual plane would likely be a better idea.

Torker intakes don't have much bottom end or top end.

Your choice is really between the Performer RPM or the Victor Jr. if you are going with an Edelbrock. I like the RPM Air Gap intake myself.

If you do go with the Air Gap get a 2" open hole spacer for it.

I don't know much about the Street Dominator.

While the torquer 2 is sortof a mutt by most accounts, the torquer is much better from my experience. I had a 355 with torquer (actually TM1) and pocket ported 461 heads. Had it topped off with a modified 750 Vacuum Secondary Holley. It was a very responsive engine and made great torque as well as pulling good up top. Of course, the old torquers are hard to find anymore.

I have the original Torker 289 on my 5.0 with Trick Flow heads. I would have rather got the Victor Jr. but I got a good deal on the Torker.

You can find them on Ebay all the time. They have the carb sit crooked so if you have the rod type linkage you have to switch to a cable.

I wouldn't recommend one myself.

I just installed a Holley Street Dominator on my son's 350, and I really like the difference from the Torker II that someone else had on the Truck. With the Holley, it has tons more throttle response, smoothness, as it should.

I have a torker2 on my 302. It seems to like 4500 to 5500 rpms the best.

302 Intake

Based on your setup go with the Holley,actually one of the best intakes on a 302 is the old Edelbrock F4B its the closest to the famed Cobra intake,there is an intake comparison of about a dozen intakes on the internet you'll have to search for it maybe Google:small block Ford intakes Good Luck!(from another Ford Guy)

I'm not a fan of the torker. Its kinda old and I think they hang on to it for nostalgic reasons. An RPM air gap has almost all the low end of a low dual plane with all the top end of a single plane. The torker has none of the low end and none of the top end compared to modern designs.

I don't have any experience with the holley, but I think the torker would be my last choice of any intake unless I had a really hairy nostalgia 289.

If you need to go with one of the intakes you named . I think the Holley will make more power on the low end . But both intakes are very close . I do know a guy thats running a Holley street dominator on a 355SB . He has 12.5 to 1 ? and over 500 lift cam #461 heads . he says 202in160ex valves . And a 850DP Holley . This guy says he loves how the car runs ! This is not the way I like to build engines but he said its dialed in .

Holley Intake

It's an Oldie but a Goodie,RPM range was 1000 to 6500 RPM depending on cam selection.I wouldn't be afraid to run it,you could run a Quadrajet or straight bore carb too.I sold a lot of these back in the 70's never had any issues.
