Hurrican vs. Victor Jr. vs. GM Intake

Postby xtreme872 » Fri Jun 27, 2008 11:15 am

I am purchasing a setof dart iron eagle platinum 215 heads. My old intake was the professional products intake for vortec heads. I have to buy a new one just wondering is the victor jr. better or is the hurricane ok. Or how about one of GM'S INtake

I like the Victor Jr for milder small blocks, Super Victor for large or more radical combo's. How about the engine specs and intended use?

For the money I have not found anything that will touch the motown or GM bowtie intake. on a 358 sportsman motor, the super vic takes about 6 hours more to almost make the power of a properly setup motown.

What's involved in properly setting up the Motown & what RPM are we talking about?

Power in at 7600, rev to 8000. I adjust the elephant ears for runner length. get the radius right on the carb flange to bottom of plenum. Adjust CSA and taper. port match to cylinder head and bolt it on.

no welding, no wild spacers...very easy to work on. Total Job cost $375.00. I have had well over a grand in super-vics pre-bowtie/motown and they don't touch the new stuff.

I have had good luck with Dart single plane intakes and Edelbrock Victor E intakes on SB chevy engines using Dart 215 heads

I have also used Professional Products and had descent results too on the track

Truck pull application. Cam should peak at about 5600-6000. I just worry about giving up too much midrange power with a big intake. 383c.i. engine dart 215 platinum heads
