Isn't the #2925 from the early 1980's? Why hasn't this design been updated? Someone told me that Brownfield designed it back then. I'd think with all the modern testing processes that this design would have been updated by how. That's what made me question Edelbrock's testing processes.
I suspect it had updated coreboxes made over the years.
The market for manifolds for gen1 is WAY over supplied and low cost imports prevail.
For a company that develops and manufactures parts in the USA, investing in that segment is throwing valuable resources away.
The way forward is in producing things that are difficult for importers to duplicate. Easier said than done.
That puts the focus on late model cars with supercharger and fuel injection systems.
From a business perspective gen 1 stuff is part of the past, not the future.
Even if the numbers were high, the profits are too low.
Things are done extremely different now than they were 5 years ago. Let alone 20 or 30.
