Funny thing is... Edelbrock also offered a Cleveland Torker which was a pretty nice intake and looks similar to the 460 Victor. I never will figure that whole deal out. It(Cleveland Torker) had way bigger ports than the 460 Torker.

I ran one on my 351 and it was a good piece. Got me into the 12's with hydraulic cam and the rest of the motor stock. I think Vic was listening to the hot rod mags that said the 460's ports were too big when he globbed that pile of junk 460 Torker up. They're still saying it...Car Craft March 2006. Of course they said the same thing about the 351. I guess they thought the lumbering 460 with it's lousy oiling system, heavy cast crank, 2 bolt mains, lousy exhaust ports, and it's super thin cylinder walls would only be good to 4000 rpm, so smaller runners would be in order. :roll:

I used one years ago, but I port matched the last 1/2" or so to the heads.
When I went to the Stealth, I lost some 60', gained some MPH, and a little ET. But, it was on a 5,000 RPM motor...

What is amazing to me is that people still buy 30 year old manifolds. Remember those Offy dual port intakes. LOL. There was one on ebay a month ago and it had a whole speal (prob from the offy catalog) on how great this intake was. LOL
