I've been checking out all the single plane intakes and was wondering what you guys thought. Is one any better than the other? I'm not talking about the junk torker type. I like the bowtie intake and the power plus intakes. But is there much of a difference other than price. The bowtie is almost double the power plus. A drag racer friend of mine said alot of the drag racers think the power plus keeps up or is a little better. I have a Victor JR. on the car now because I traded some parts for it. I'm sure there are alot of opinions but I like hearing them.

I've got a Power Plus on my mod, and a Bowtie on my bro's Streeter. They both make good power and pull hard all the way around the track. The power Plus is alot cheaper. I'd recommend it. To me it looks alot like the Brodix HV1000.

I like the way the victor jr. runs. I have a 383 with 13.5:1 compression. I run a holley 4412 with a 1" phenolic spacer and the throttle is real crisp. With the cam I run it pulls hard down the straights and alot of torque off the corner. I have never run a torker but I've talked to a couple of people who have and I dont know anyone who likes them. I guess if you need the hood clearance but I would rather run a performer rpm or airgap before a torker. But I don't know from first hand experience, just hear say. The race shop that we have won't even stock them he hates them so bad!

Thanks for the input,I am not really happy with the response and am assuming part of it is this intake,plan on changing and thinking about the victor junior.

I remember reading that a super victor gives about 5 or so more horsepower than a victor Jr. Steve Hendren on the engine tech page would know. But, like I say, I remember reading that somewhere.

I have about the same motor and I run a super victor. Pulls real good.

I ran a Torker intake on my street rod and really liked it accept below 2000rpm it just lugged the motor below 2 but above 2 it ran like a spotted **** ape. Every one I have talked to likes a Victor Jr. never run one but have heard a lot of good things about them.

That would be the Power Plus, as mentioned above. Well worth the money.

I think for the money the power plus hurricane is the best bet. Our speedshop sells them for about $130. That's what I would buy if I didn't already have a victor jr.

According to the catalog data the Super victor is for higher RPM ranges.
The Victor Jr.is designed for 3000 - 6800 or so.
The Super Victor is for up to 8000 RPM or so.
The Victor Jr is most popular because it's best suited to our needs.On the street you'd probably prefer a Performer or Performer RPM over a Victor Jr.
You've got to have good heads and enough RPM to move that mixture with the single plane manifolds. A lower compression, less momentum class like a hooby car will run better with the dual plane Performer due to the velocity of the intake charge being managed better with the smaller runner dual plane design.
