If this is something you're contemplating, you have a LONG WAY to go before you'd benefit from it. You haven't even done headers or a tune yet. Most of these intakes are for high hp, big cubed motors.

Taking notes, planning on a wild NA setup I ran the Vic Jr on my turbo build just wanna see what people are running these intakes but don't need big cubes to benefit from it. Yes I am 100% stock right now witj 187miles on tje clock :/ lol I'm used to wild setups on trucks but thinking of a forged 5.3L for my goal

Plus, it takes a lot more than just a taller hood. There are some significant modifications required to the rear cowl area.

Thanks I noticed on 429s thread I'm sure cutting and fabrication is a must

I'd really look at the fast before the Holley for a street setup on smaller cubes. Now if u are gonna shift at 7500+, the Holley may be ok but you will lose power in the low and mid rpm ranges.

The holley is a killer manifold if everything underneath it is setup for it. 7800 shifts, nasty cam, big converter, a lot of gear, lots of compression and it will love it.

I help Holley on the forums, and that intake is really designed for bigger engines, power adder setups, and high-winding setups.

Correct. And the heat soak is a power killer over the composite ones (if your looking at the aluminum one).

Just wondering how you think you'll be shifting at 7800?

I'm not saying you can't, but how? What size ports? What size cams? What kind of valve train? 7800 is no easy task.

It doesnt get any hotter then the plastic ones to the touch, to be honest. I expected it to get a lot warmer, but it isn't in direct contact with the hot parts of the engine, either, and gets a lot of airflow under it vs the plastic intakes literally sitting on the valley.
