BB chevy factory dual plane intake 163

Postby rally » Thu Jan 12, 2012 5:26 pm

I was just wondering what kind of horsepower and RPM range these factory BB Chevy 163 intakes handle? Do they make good power in the 6500-6800 RPM range and what cubic inch motor could these handle. Would they work well for a 468 CI BB Chevy on the strip?

Pete awesome looking Vette. Always liked those 427-425 hp engines. I will email you and talk deeper about this intake and its performance advantages.
