The original Torker was a good intake in the upper RPM ranges, in the lower it didnt provide enough low end torque for daily driving, its runners were slightly larger and it was based on a X design, the intake was discountined for the reasons above plus other issues with its performance and was replaced by the Torker II. You can likely order a oil fill tube, but if you plan on using standard valve covers you won't need it, you can buy a plug to fit the hole in the intake if the plug is no longer present.

The torker II's runners are longer and more narrow providing more low end response but no matter, it still suffers the same lack as other open plane intakes, the loss of low end torque for upper rpm horsepower. So for street cars, we lean to a dual plane intake, for high rpm power a open plane.

performer vs low rise single

DV- i agree except i have been toying with a edel streetmaster 318 intake. this is the smallest (punny 273/318 ports size) low rise single plane i have seen. it is a 0-5500rpm intake, and maintains great daily driver throttle response. it doesnt fall into the dismal torquer II pit. the 318 has a the 340 factory HP cam .43o/.444" lift, and cop heads. i have a 4 spd manual trans transfering power.

between them the difference i notice most is the loss of the off idle torque lurch forward that dual plane "performer" styles provide. however once i wind up 2500-4500 it is smoother with an unrestricted upper rpm feeling.

the performers "swell" from idle to 2500 in a jiffy. almost becoming a puller , more than a winder, cause its choking by 4500-5000rpm.

just my take

I have a streetmaster for a SB chevy, it looks almost identical to a torker II only with smaller runners. I like it.

the torker works from 2500-6500 and works well on 350's from 3000-3500 rpm up.i just resently took one off my 406,for another slightly better which works as well on the bottom as it does the top.for just driving around in a 400-450 h.p. motor its great.mine had a verly large cam and was in a heavy vehicle.i saw an article by kevin mcClelland who helped design the torker ll and he said it was only made to handle about 400 h.p..edelbrock made a bunch of intakes like the streetmaster ,taranchala torker,they all look alike.i also have an old streetmaster that looks completely different.
