Performer vs Performer RPM for 302

703 3
I just read a post for daveoxide and it got me thinking. The one who responded said that he liked the Performer over the RPM on the street. Has anyone tried the same, using both manifolds on the same engine with everything else being the same on a 302?

I hope to be assembling my 302 soon, I'm using GT40P heads, Performer cam and a 1406 carb. I allready have the Performer manifold, but was thinking of going to the RPM because the GT40P heads breath decent and at a later time, If I deciced to go with more cam, the manifold would allreay be there.

BTW, doesn't this new forum kick @ss? I think it's more successfull than Bob ever thought it would be. Close the old one down now since there seems to be nothing but a lot of trash going on overthere.

The Performer RPM would be my first choice for the street. I didn't notice all that much diference between the Performer manifold and my stocker. Although the Performer RPM Air Gap manifold may be another choice for you if you want to make more power. It is based off of the Victor Jr. manifolds with a space between the runners and the bottom of the manifold to keep the hot oil from heating up the fuel charge and robbing power. Cool fuel=More power.
