Picked these 2 intakes up today and both are brand new, how rare is that. The Eddy is pretty old like late 70's old. Might need to fluff one and pass it off for stock on a cheater engine some day. I know for me the old 2101 Performer intake worked better than the newer version. Even my 307 back in the day screamed with it.

What makes you think late 70s? The Edelbrock looks like the same intake I used 15-20 years ago.
In 1983 I bought a new Performer like the one pictured above. Mine had the Performer name on the rear runner and this one does not so I think this one is way earlier than my other one. The same thing happened with the Torker II intake, it was just called the 5001 single plane intake, then a couple of years later it showed up at a place I worked at and then it was called the Torker II. It was still a POS intake back then, LOL.

Looks like the alternator bracket bolts to the thermostat housing on the Weiand.
That's a little different.

The runners look pretty "fat" on that one.
I see one just like it on ebay for $300.

x2 on Older 2101 --- whatever it is, it's better enough that our regional circle tracks (those which mandate 2101 in some classes) Do also Specify it must be the newer and more available 2101 versions. Of note is fact that all those restricted 2101 classes do also require a spec spacer-adapter along w/ 2 bbl carb e.g. holley 4412 or rochester 2G. Typically a weight break for 350 cfm v. 500 cfm too.

That 7502 is an old manifold from the 70’s. It was the predecessor to the 8016 Stealth, which is also long discontinued…

Funny how my 7502 pictured above looks almost identical to your Weiand intake. They will open up to a 1205 gasket pretty easy and know down the divider a little and I thing it would work pretty good. I guess it would be "Stealthy" LOL.
