With a mild engine,hydraulic flat tappet cam, Vacuum secondary middle of the road carb,heavy car,mismatched over size heads,and various other common mistakes,the performer will bridge the gap better.
when you step up,you will see
use the dual plane,some people are very very happy with that type of power delivery and I recommend the dual plane most of the time
I saw an opportunity in your car to show an example of what power is to be had,yours would be worth the improvement.

If you ever come to BC,call me,I will show you what a sports car can do
From a Performer to a Victor Jr, no wonder your car did better. Unless you are speaking of a Performer RPM to a Vic Jr. I dont think anyone should ever pick a Performer intake over a Performer RPM intake.
