The problem with the performer will be that it doesn't have CJ sized ports, it will have quite a mismatch with your heads.

Blue Thunder has a CJ dimension dualplane that is
very close to stock CJ height. Trickflow also offers a similar intake.

I agree, I think the RPM or Stealth would be roughly the same height as an original CJ intake.

I am running a performer with ram/air on my 71 Cobra and it sticks my snorkel up as far as I could comfortably go....ARE you sure about the height of the 'rpm' model and the 'stealth';....they appear to be so much taller than mine...yet if they would work , I'd rather have the performance advantage of the latter.dc ps. ....Love the forum...

I have a Performer RPM intake on my 89lx now and
previously I had a iron CJ intake on it and the
RPM intake is about 1.5" taller. The one from
Bluethunder is closer to the right height and is
a beautiful piece, no manufacturers logo, just the firing order. It looks just like an aluminum version of the iron intake. I have one with a dominator pattern for a future engine.
