Intake and header upgrade
#1
Hi , I am looking to upgrade my stock 351c 4v intake and headers , the only affordable headers I can find to fit my 4v with c6 are hooker 6195hkr , in either painted or ceramic , are the ceramic any good , durable etc ?
as for the intake the edel 2665 performer looks good? topped off with a edel 1407 or holley 0-1850s , want a manual choke , engine is stock though has pertronix and msd with wires and coil , may upgrade cam in time , looking for best bottom end power , any views most appreciated , thx in advance

If you can afford them go with the ceramic coated. I am running a torker 351 intake w/holly 780dp..

The edelbrock performer and the factry 4V intake will perform about the same from what I have read. The newer Airgap has received some good reviews, but its taller and my not fit with a raim air set up

I agree with the ceramic coated I bought a set myself{ hooker competition} and the look great and it also keeps the engine bay cooler.And I also put the air gap on my engine {not a stock cam}from stock to air gap I gained 50 hp and a good amount of torque {don't have the numbers in my head}. But as said above if you are planing on keeping a functional ram air the air gap is to tall. But I wanted the extra power so I removed the ram air .The Air Gap is also a cooler intake so the need for cool air is not as important.

Thx for that , the ceramic certainly looks miles better than painted , is the finish holding up ok? , as for the intake the air gap looks good , I do not have ram air ,will one fit under a stock hood without mods , I did consider a taller intake , if there is not much difference between a performer and stock I wouldnt bother with one , would go with airgap or torker but I have heard that torker are more for top end which I am not bothered about , want more grunt low down!
Any opinions on holley vs edelbrock ,and what size? , have heard holley are easier to set up , thx in advance

I looked at street avengers today , guy at shop reckoned the 670 would be enough , has your motor got a cam / etc ? , remember mine is stock with just ignition/exhaust upgrades , just wonder if a 750 would be too much?

the finish is holding up perfectly on the headers no change in color at all.And yes the air gap fits under a stock hood with room to spare for spacers if you ever want to add some.
