I know they're pricey, but are they worth the expense on a limited motor such as one with a Holley 350 cfm carb?

Thanks.

They are worth it if you get the correct one's . The best that I have found have been made by Fueling Industries . They enter the collector at a 25 degree angle , where most other's are quite a bit more shallow . I've tested the one's that Dynatec make on a 2bbl engine , and only saw a 5hp gain along with a torque gain of about 5 foot pounds . On an open engine , the Fueling collectors picked up 50 foot pounds , and close to 25 HP . I have not tried them on a 2bbl engine , so I can not give any accurate info on their performance in relation to your question . If your going to try some , I'd look for some with the steepest approach angle into the collector .

Darn good question !!! I dealt with them quite a bit when I had my shop in CA. I used to buy their merge collectors and anti reversion cones . But I have not purchased anything from them in several years , and I the number that I have for them is no longer any good . I'll ask my dad tomorrow if he still has the contact info , and I'll post it if he does .

66jj ,

The number I have for them is 805-650-6798 . They were/are located in LA . I'm not sure this is a valid phone number though , especially since they changed all of the are codes around in LA .
