The Weiand action+ was the first aftermarket intake I bought. Barely any taller than a factory intake. But the engine I had was a factory 2-barrel. So I bought the cheapest aftermarket 4-barrel manifold at the time. Only thing you're paying for is weight savings, which wasn't worth it. What a gyp.

well (like a lot of my parts for my build) my dad had this sitting in his shop and he gave it to me. but unlike what you said about yours being barely taller than stock, mine is way taller than stock. i would consider to be a high rise almost.

Compared to a performer (just as an example), yeah it's about the same. Performer RPM is higher. That's more of a high rise.

Weiand Action+, Performer, Factory 4-barrel...you won't notice the difference in every day driving.

ok, will it be enough of an intake for a Edelbrock performer rpm cam? i have 049 heads mild port with the exhaust polished, and its bored .030. i just figured it was a good intake because it was on a 454 that my dad used for his race blazer before he went to a stroked 396.
