Sorry 28 I don't kkkknow anything about the prolines but have been using the dart 215 for 3 years and I really like them. Took off a set of dbl humps and bolted these on right out of the box and there was a tremendous difference.

I talked with JR MS and they told me that they haven't had the Prolines long, but they did have some sealing problems with them. They say that the Darts are a nicer piece.
I'm leaning more and more toward the Darts. Thanks for the reply, all the input helps.

Which intake are you running? I'm also wondering if the Dart/Wilson is that much better than a Victor Jr.

The Dart/Wilson or the Super Victor are 100 times better than the V-Jr ! Also , I'd recommend the Iron Eagles .

Steve, thanks for the input. While your posting, do the iron eagles come with a nice tight valve job that doesn't rely on spring pressure to seal?

If you get a set of Darts I have heard that the stock valves that come with them are not that great. I mean they are heavy, and you have to get them ground down because there not setted that good. I got a set and up graded the valves of the bat. I'm not 100% sure on this, but this also demends on the lift your running with your cam. We also run the holley 300-25 strip dominator. It has good lift for the carb and cuts the flow angle down going into the heads. good luck
If you need any help pm me thanks spde aka Dirt Racing Motorsports
