What is the best intake manifold
I have a 1971 Chrysler Imperial 440 CID.375 HP I run a Carter AFB Competition carb and I was wondering what would the best intake manifold to run. I am replacing the stock cam with a edelbrock camshaft. Thanks Jesse Denny

Edelbrock Performer RPM will work nicely.

Yes, RPM will work nicely. I highly recommend you rethink the camshaft. Edelbrock does not grind cams, they "buy" them. Their offerings are generi-grinds similar to (if not identical) Elgin, Melling, Summit, Wolverine, etc. Comp and Lunati have modern designs that are far more effective (Comp XE series and Lunati VooDoo series).

You're going to need a minimum of 800 CFM, and Edelbrock carbs are "iffy" at best on engines of this size. A Holley is better, and IMO, AED offers the best Holleys modified.
