This particular intake is not that bad for an old single plane, but make sure you use it with the divider as it will help low end a lot. This intake(Wieand Accelerator #7546 w/divider) has been out of production for close to 10 years, so it may not have enough material to cover some of the newer +.100" raised intake ports. Check before you just bolt it on. If it will work, I would use it as a test to rule out head problems and then replace it with a new piece geared toward your build if the problem is solved.

The PP Crosswind, and the Typhoon(dual planes), come up in a lot of problem threads around the web, strangely the PP Hurricane(big single plane) hardly ever. Have used the Hurricane without problems, but know a friend that had driveabilty issues on his street rod using a PP Typhoon dual plane(non air gap like an Performer) and took the polished PP intake off and put the Performer back on and the hot start and sputtering problems went away.
