EDELBROCK FORD 300 INTAKE

I saw one on ebay a while ago. I didn't know they made one with all the stock stuff on them. At least they used to but not anymore. Does anyone have any experience with them? Are they a waste of time with the one barrel carb? Just curious. It is sort of interesting since it looks smog legal and I'm in CA. I figured with some smog headers and a new ignition, I might be able to see some gains in power.

Dont know about the edelbrock, but offenhauser C series bolts right up to the stock exhaust manifold. Tried the one barrell(with an adapter plate that I made) but did not notice any difference in power. Switched to the 500cfm edelbrock carb and with header installed it made a big difference, but, no smog checks for 25 year old trucks in Oklahoma. I have heard that 390 or 450 hollies tune well with the 300cid engine.

rpspwp:

Before you do any modifications to your truck's engine, make sure you can modify it. Check with state laws first. California isn't very friendly from what I have heard when it comes to dealing with people modifying there vehicles.

Tried offenhauser c series intake. Looks better than it works. Some performance gain, especially with a 4 barrel, but tuning will be a problem. Fuel seems to condense inside those nice long runners,and rear cylinders burn too rich as the fuel runs downhill inside the intake manifold. C series makes it's home on shop wall now. Turbocharging the ticket for me.

Tuning is no problem with 02 sensors installed in the collectors. Also, a little port work to open up the breathing capabilities of that 300 head seams to work magic. Cant get enough HP? Try a 240 head, bump the compression. Install larger valves. Heck, if all else fails, turbo charge it.

Bottom line, what works for some, dont work for others. Do your research, listen to people that have been there, check your budget, and then make a choice.
