[B]Weiand X-pert[/B]

Has anybody ran or heard of a Weiand X-pert Intake manifold. I got it off a guy back in 1994 and Have had it on my car ever since. Looks similar to a victor Jr but I can't find any onfo on it. Its Single plane raised runners and has a Plug were it looks like you could put a oil tube in. Reason I'm asking, I'm in the process of rebuilding motor and I'm trying to find out if this intake is obsulete compared to the new technology of ..say a Team G or a Victor Jr. All in all looks like a nice intake just need to find out if I need to go out with the old and In with the New. Thanks for any info..

I believe that is a discontinued model. Im sure someone out there has an old CarCraft, or HotRod mag that somewhere makes mention of such an intake.
Just hopefully the better half didnt make them throw theirs out.

Thats a good idea. Guess I will go through the old hotrod Mags. Wonder why they discontinued it though? Was thinking of doing so work to it, just don't want to waste my time.

I have one at my carage wall..
If i remember correctly Vizard claims about 50hp and as much torgue to be gained in 350hp motor just by putting in victor jr.

He also recommends divider into plenum..

intakes are so cheap that i recommend you to buy JR and put that old X-Pert on the wall also =)

looks like mine is the X-pert 7522. Does it show what year this was designed ?if its that old Im sure 68corvette is correct that this manifold is obsolete. Looks like a decent manifold though..

parts aren't like clothes and G Q magazine.i'd use it til such time you decide you don't like it and can comfortably replace it.i have a couple of alum. hi-rise intakes from the early 60's 327/365 & 350 motors and i'd use them if i had a set up that called for it.they are great manifolds.

Just post it on ebay. Its sorta like and oddity. so that should help out the sale price a bit i bet. Some folks like to build their cars with weird/odd/hard to find nostalgic stuff. Im kinda like that. i am looking for an intake i seen only once in my life. i believe its for a small block chev. and it holds 2 superchargers, one on each side of it. they both sit at an angle. they probably arent the best for potential power, but it looks ****.
i rarely drag, and never dyno. the only person i want to satisfy with my cars, is me.

Had one on my '71 Chevelle.
For low and midrange on small block Chevy (dependent on the displacement).
Fine manifold in the 1970s but I have no data on how it stacks up compared to newer castings.

Keep the shiny side up!

All those old X style single plane manifolds are kinda obsolete.
A modern Dual plane Hi rise manifold Like the Edelbrock Performer RPM will out perform that old Wieand thingie in all respects.
You'll really like the improved mid range torque and overall throttle response of your engine if you were to switch to such a manifold.
