Post Intake

I have a few questions concerning an intake for a sbc. I'm rebuilding a 1978 305 sbc for my '83 pickup. I have a '67-'68 327 4b intake that I want to put on it. Will this intake work on a 305? Is this intake comperable to an Edelbrock Performer intake? I am planning on putting in a Comp Cam and a set of headers, so I have that end buttoned up. I just need to know if I need to spend money on a new intake or if I can salvage the old one. Hope someone can help me! <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

Yes, the 305's have the same bolt pattern.

The performer will work well at higher RPMS than the stock one. And will give a very mild low speed power increase on the 305 as well as better signal to the carb booster's. May even decrease gas consumption at cruise speed's.

You can port match the intake and the heads to increase your power a bit on that small block and save your self spending the money on a new manfold.That is just a suggestion though.
