Response to From what I have learned on the site.....

Without knowing more about your car it is hard to determine which manifold may work the best. Info needed would be car weight, rear gear, trans(stick or automatic) Solid or roller cam,Tire size, and first gear ratio. Having said that the best single four manifold that will work with a light stick car is a modified Roush/Ford Motorsport intake that is modified for stock heads, or a modern sheet metal tunnel ram. The Roush intake requires a lot of work to use with the stock heads and must be ported and milled to work right. The Weiand tunnel ram wasn't even the choice of racers back in the 1970's let alone being a good choice today. The Edelbrock UR-19 with twin Dominators was the choice of most of the Pro stock cars in the 1970's and would still be faster than a Weiand with two 600's or 660's. I have not tried a Funnelweb intake, as that may work as good as or better than the modified Ford/Roush piece. A Strip Dominator or Torker/Scorpion would next on the list for power but they all have their limits.
