The grant wasn't even close to the top of the power tree but it does look cool. FYI the manifold that won was a Edelbrock RPM Airgap with a 750 grant mech secondaries..... sure wish I could find the article though.
In a lot of cases depending upon the application the Six Shooter is not going to make more hp then a properly matched up single 4 barrel and conventional intake but it was not intended to. I can tell you the Demon carb and single 4 will make more power then the comparable Edel carb all day long and also that the Pontiac Six Shooter made 65hp more than a stock Pontiac tri-power in independant testing. Each case will be different however. Several benefits of the Triple Induction are that most see better fuel mileage yet still have the performance when needed ,drivability is improved and you get the cool factor when you go to a cruise in and raise the hood just to name a few.
