I'm not sure on that one, you may have a little better luck by doing a search for chevy V8 specifications... are you looking for an exact one, or are you just interested in putting an aluminum one on yours? If thats the case, get an edelbrock one off of ebay... most go for about $75. If you are looking for low end performance, get the Performer intake. If you are looking for mild racing type of RPMs, get the Performer Plus... If you are going after all-out racing performance, then you are in the wrong forum, lol...
hope this helps a little...

I'm not sure what they came in, but I have seen a couple alluminum quadrajet intakes. Probably camaros i'm guessing. I would think the only benefit would be less weight and better heat transfer

I picked up my Performer at a swap meet for $60. I noticed a difference in low end power after I put it on.

And I think AJ is talking about the Performer RPM, not Performer Plus.

I've seen those things on early 80's performance cars. Even on 305's here and there. They are not a bad deal but an aftermarket one really outperforms them.

not sure about the stock intakes, sorry. I'm kinda new to trucks myself. I had an '89 Camaro, 305, tbi. I swapped the tbi out and and put on an Edelbrock RPM Air-Gap and 600cfm holley carb and that made a HUGE difference in power. Lots more low end and it pulled harder on top. I would definately switch to an aftermarket intake rather than buy an older stock aluminum intake.

My dad has an airgap intake and a Carter 650 AFB on his 71 c-10... it has a bit more torque than you would expect from an old motor thats only been rebuilt once.... i am in the process of trying to convince him to give it to me.... but to no avail..... anyone here ever tried to fabricate their own intake manifold.... i think it would be an intersting project to tackle now that i have access to the right equipment

I've seen people build thier own when converting sand rails over to Multi point fuel injection. I think it might be hard and a chev as it would be diffucult to get the runners short for the low end torque. If you are up for building an intake, I would build a set of headers instead. Seems the aftermarket ones really leave a lot to be desired. I ended up running a set for a Chevelle to get the clearance I needed.
