Post Vic Jr....or torker II...is one better?

Im building a 400 hp 327 and own a torker II. Will it cost justify me to change to a Vic Jr.? I plan on trying it but, does anyone know what exactly WOULD be the differnce. Some say not much and others say it should help a lot. THANKS DAVE I have a old holley 650 DP which has not run in about 20 years, its clean and in good shape(by looks). Will this unit rebuild successfully? THANKS AGAIN ALL! Dave

The victor jr is rated at like 3500 rpm's and up while the torker is 2500 and up, so it depends on were you want the power to start and your cam specs. Try to match your cam with your intake.
The holley is rebuildable. Soak it overnight, clean everything good and buy a rebuild kit and you should be in business. DONT use teflon tape! I just had a holley rebuilt and the people before me rebuilt it and used teflon tape and it was like having a glob of super glue in the carb. HG

god this post has a serious echo problem, echo problem.. be sure the bottom of your holley is flat, also the throttle body rod that the butterfly valves are screwed into should NOT wobble when you wiggle it. that is the #1 reason to junk a holley, worn out throttle bodies can't be fixed to my kanowlege. everything else can after a dip in carb cleaner. try to get reusable blue gaskets and use an anti blow out valve if you 4 wheel use spring loaded needle valves and float bowl baffles. okay you dont have a truck. re; torker II...in hrm dyno test they were out performed by the rpm air gap intake so i'm sure the victor series would too.

The Victor Jr. intake manifold is a great design, and if properly matched with the proper camshaft and cylinder heads will make surprisingly good low speed torque for a single plane manifold, I have used both the torker 2 and the Victor Jr., and I like the Victor Jr. better for "hot" engines. Use low gears, enough stall speed, and plan on spinning some RPM, otherwise, I would use a Performer RPM or equivalent dual plane intake.
