new rules say i can run a weiand 7547 x-cellerator aluminum intake or a non bowtie iron intake. this will go on a flat tappet 383 with a holley 890cfm 2bbl carb. what would work best? i know the aluminum is lighter but will this intake flow better than a stock intake? i've heard of some problems like certin cylinders running lean with this intake???

thanks for any info

The aluminum would have a better flow being smoother than the cast iron intake in stock form. Now if the cast iron intake has been cleaned up they may be equal. But less weight up front is always a big plus!!!

If you have the choice between a single and duel plane intake, you should always go with the single plane, provided your allowed to use the proper adapters to make your 2bbl work.
