I would like some input on Jr. Victor, Super Victor, and the Power Plus intake manifold. I will be running a 406-forged bottom end, flat tops, and about a .530 solid lift cam. I will be using 462 heads with screw in rocker studs .600 lift springs and 1.6 roller rockers. I would like to pull about 6300 with this combo. I know the Super Victor pulls to like 8,000, will this intake be two much for this combo? Or would it still flow better then the Jr. or the Power Plus? I havenít heard much about the Power Plus intake either, but it has a good price.

I will also use this intake on my back motor if my 406 blows up! My back up is a stock bottom end 355 with flat tops, .550 solid cam, and 441 heads .600 lift springs and 1.6 roller rockers. So will the super victor work well with this combo also? Oh by the way both motors will have a 750 double pumper with a 1-inch spacer. Thanks in advance!!!

The Super Victor is not too much for your application by any means. The extended plenum area in the Super Victor picks you up all the way around. All modern 23 degree intakes use this extended plenum. The Victor JR is a dinosaur now. Actually the Victor JR was a dinosaur back in the 80's.

In every case, in all of our testing, the Super Victor has performed the best. So I would highly recommend it, and I can't stand most Edelbrock parts. So this should tell you a little about how I feel about the Super Victor.

Steve, how close in comparison is the Power Plus intake to the Victors or other single plain intakes? They are priced substantially lower than the rest. I personally have (2) of them on a 355 and a 383 and they seem to work well, but I'm not testing or have the background to compare against other manufactures. Just curious. Thanx in advance. Steve.

Steve,
Is the same true for the small block Ford 302 VictorJR. vs. the Super Victor?

thanks Brian

Thanks for the insight Steve I thought it would be the best, but with me only pulling 6300 to 6500 rpm I thought it maybe overkill! I looked at the power plus also due to its price and wasn't sure with that either. Well it looks like super victor next year. Thanks for the info again!

smayo964,

I can not give you a honest opinion on the Power Plus, as I have not personally tested it.

ford5,

Yes the same hold's true for the Ford's. We use the Super Victor on our Ford Limited Late Model engines. I really like it.

19J,

Yes I said that I can't stand MOST Edelbrock part's, and this is true. If you have time, feel free to call me some time and I'll be happy to explain my reasons for this. As for the intakes we use, it depends on the combo. We have used the Super Victor for the past several year's on 23 degree engines. Before that time we used the Dart/Wilson intake, and the Bow Tie single plane intake that Dart developed for GM. Our 18 degree engines use GM intakes, Dart, or Brodix intakes. Our SB2.2 engines use GM intakes. Our Ford engines with 351N and 352N heads use the Super Victor. Our Ford engines with C3 or SC1 heads use Ford Motorsport Intakes. So we use a variety of intakes.

Burque,

No problem! Good luck!

Steve
