Edelbrock upper and lower

Hi
I'm getting an Edelbrock upper and lower manifold. It's the RPM1 I think.

My car is a 95, so I will need the adaptor that turns 45 debrees tothe T.B.

Could you help me and tell me what other things will be needed to do this swap? I'm g=uessing some gaskets but are there other important things to get before jumping into this?

I will upgrade the fuel pump and add a fuel regulator at the same time.

Cheers

I guess ...why? As compared to "cleaning up" the internals of the oem intake, there is very little at best power gains.....except maybe at redline.

All you need is the gaskets and the elbow. An adjustable fuel regulator isn't necessary and won't do much. An upgraded fuel pump isn't a bad idea, but it's not necessary unless you're going to add new cylinder heads or forced induction down the road. You won't be getting anything out of it if you run it as is now and or with the new manifold. If you get a "bigger" pump get a walboro gss340.

Ahh I wouldn't go that far Beech. My '95 gained 18 horsepower to the wheels with just a ported stock lower intake.
Which is good, but I'll need a new and improved aftermarket unit if I ever get aftermarket heads. If I go that route I'd be spending twice vs his spending once.
With the ported lower the seat of the pants improvement was felt starting around 4k rpm.

It was on engine masters IIRR not long ago, they cleaned up a stock intake and compared it to the eddy's....same hp & tq.

Dang, crappy eddy. So that one is worse than a stock Ford Explorer intake?
They list it’s rpm up to 5,500 so it should be inline with the stock power band. I figured it’d flow more cfm per rpm than the ho intake.

What do you mean by cleaning the interior? I'm a noob at this and I haven't heard this yet

Kinda like the older cast iron & aluminum intakes, there is "casting flash"...little pieces of plastic that seep out of the sides of the mold inside the runners, typically at the ends of the runners......I've done a couple of these on my own vehicles, I took a Dremel with 100 grit sandpaper roll type and sanded the excess off...looked good, performed well and had no issues.

Don’t go “hogging it out though.” You can make it flow worse. Good info on here
