    I ran a Super Victor this year 2975 after spending the winter porting it. It made so much bottom end tq. I thought I had a dual plane on it. The only problem was the top end performance still sucked compared to my 300-25 that I will use again. The Hurricane intake worked well but the Holley is the winner in my book. These tests were all with a homemade 750hp and my 850 Mighty Demon.

    The cam you have is what will make your engine soft below 4500. If I built that combo,I would be running a 4500-5000 stall convert or anyway. Even with the largest intake,you wont loose anything below about 3500 rpm anyhow. The combo you have should be leaving at no less then 4800 and shifting at about 6700 for best e.t.'s,so you pretty much determined the entire combo when you chose that cam.

    Yes the 67-69 Z-28 302 Factory Intake was a great design and can still run with the new technology intakes of today.

    great video,but how many rpms do u think that engine can pull with that intake?? I would think a strip dominator would take the same motor to a much higher rpm ? I would port my rpm intake and save some $$ IF I thought it would fit my engine combo..run 6500 rpms ,at least.

    Nelson racing engines builds awesome but crazy expensive engines . I read somewhere that the motor in that Camaro would easily see 7k rpm
