What is the lowest profile SBC 4 barrel aluminum intake?

I currently have a performer. Anything lower would be better.

Looking into it a bit further ...the single plane manifolds like the Torker 2 and Weiand IMCA #7547 are the lowest but they will not have the low end street response you get from your current performer duel plane

GM made an aluminum 4 bl intake and it can be found on 1980-87 305 Chevy engines. These are exactly the same has a cast iron 4 bl intakes. I believe GM did this as a way of saving weight.

Is this a small scale tractor pull rig or farm racer of sorts?

Thank you. Does anyone know how tall the Edelbrock SP2P intake is (like compared to performer etc)
From what im finding online, it looks like (for my specific low idle, low rpm/high torque application) the edelbrock sp2p is what I would probably want... performance wise.

IIRC, it is about the same height, just really small runners to supposedly promote high velocity of the intake charge. Pretty close to the same height as a stock 4 barrel intake.

ya, that sounds interesting. Message me price and details if you could please.
It belongs to my son and he just bought a 59 El camino that is missing engine and transmission. I was thinking you could check bone yards. I have bought factory Mustang 5.0 alumunum 4 barrels manifolds for $ 25. most factory manifolds are low profile. My son helped a friend who owns a wrecking yard crush cars and any cars with the big red x were free to canabalize, just bring back the scrap.
