Anyone have experience with all the above manifolds? It's on a stock car type engine (10.5:1 max cr, 355 or 406 CID, 1 5/8" headers, 4412 or 3310 carb).

The rules for area tracks allow all 3 intakes and a max of 1" spacer. Currently I have the Performer and Torker II and both carbs. I'm thinking the Victor and 4412 would be the easiest and pull highest rpm if setup right.

What about using an adapter to put the 3310 on the Victor? KP, any thoughts? Or stick with the 4412 on the 2V intake?

The track closest to me requires the 2101 Performer intake, so that's what I've run the last 2 years. Hopefully, next year that track will copy the rules used at 3 other local tracks and allow the other intakes.

Man that really is a tough one....
Hmmmmmmmm
well I have used the 2v victor, and it worked allright.....we had the choice between the 2v victor and the RPM intake, and the 2v was a whole lot better, but both were with a 4412.

I DONT like the "Torker II" (torkeless 2 is what I call it), but if you are going to run the 3310, the Torker II with a spacer is the only way to go...I would think.

I Havent ever thought about adapting a 4v carb to a 2v intake...but I would be willing to bet money it wont flow right.

but I think youre right,I think the 2v victor and a 4412 will give you the best all around performance...I could be wrong but thats JMHO.

Heck.. if you have both, try it both ways and see what works best for ya, and let us all know,I'm kinda wondering myself now!

While we're on the subject, our track allows either the marine Bowtie or the 2101. We're also allowed a 2" spacer and a dual line single pumper 3310. I hate the weight of the Bowtie and am wondering about switching to the 2101...any thoughts?

I believe they're fairly similar port and design wise from what I've seen. If nothing else, the 2101 is significantly lighter. I'd bet the iron manifold is around 40lbs where the alum. piece is like 10 or so. That's a decent weight loss of the nose of the car just from an intake swap.

Any one else have ideas/thoughts on the Victor Jr 2V?

I ran a victor 2v then switched to a regular victor with the same motor. I used the same 4412 on both. I couldn't tell the difference. On a dyno I'm sure there is a difference.

I have a couple different motors and have found that the small 355 small valve motors, FT, double humps, work well with the torker 2. I would run the victor if I had higher compression and more head, bigger valves etc.
My 2 cents.
