I had a Power Plus single plain intake go through my hands a couple years back and I was surprised at the quality. I have had edlebrock and Holley both, and I thinkt the power plus casing quality was just as good. And the intake was a dead ringer for a Brodix Intake. The Air gap looks like they used an edlebrock unit to build their molds. I dont know how they are getting away with it. It would be interesting for one of these guys with a dyno to check the numbers on the two and see if they perform the same.

If you made it all the way to this message you must be as interested in the air gap discussion as I am. A few weeks ago I picked up a used (cross wind) Power Plus manifold. Air Gap is the Edelbrock name. I got it with a bunch of other parts and didn't pay much attention until I decided it would look good on my 69 Camaro small block, so I started to polish it up. About half way through the job I noticed the "Made in China" stamped on it. At that very minute I stopped polishing and put the manifold back on the shelf.
Even if the made in China was not visible when on the car, I would always know it was there and could never enjoy it. I have since decided to keep my Holley manifold and change carbs. <img src="graemlins/nono.gif" border="0" alt="[nono]" />

no problem, im just the type that can look past the made in china part. hell for all i know i might have been made in china. i just think that maybe somebody might have been interested in them. i drive a 74 chevy shortbed prerunner 4x4 with 35s and 3.73s. with the performer rpm it felt kinda sluggish off of the line and now i have the crosswind and that really woke this vortech motor up off of the line. while were on the subject of made in china, i was adjusting the valves on the new engine today and alot of my stuff is made in another country. alternator-mexico, electric fuel pump-china, intake-china, water pump-mexico, power steering pump-mexico. its really amazing how much equiptment is actually made in other countries.
