Re: Performer or performer rpm ?

Id probably go with the RPM since the regular performer isnt much more than a warmed up stock intake. If you do run the performer, stick a 3/4" spacer on it...........will make a very noticeable difference, especially in the midrange........

Re: Performer or performer rpm ?

Remi, have you taken a close look at the thermostat housing bolt holes?

This is what that intake looked like when I scored it at the junkyard a few years ago...

When I last used the intake, I was holding the water neck down with studs and nuts instead of bolts.
