Arrow Best BBC Intake

What is the best intake for a BBC with Brodix BB2+ heads. Makes around 750 hp and is in a street car. Running low 10's with a Victor Jr. Going to square port instead of round Edelbrock Performer Plus. Height is a problam. Can't be higher than the Victor Jr. at about 6 inches. Thanks.

It's a 540. Was thinking of a Merlin X as I think I can get away with the height. They also will do some port matching and plenum work. I can use both the 4150 and 4500 flange as it is a Prosystems SV1 carb. Was favoring the 4500 flange though.

Whatever you go with be sure its an open plenum. The cloverleaf intake will not work with the SV1.

you could port the one you have accordingly, yes it's a shit ton of work.

I would but it's set up for fuel injection so would like to keep it with the EFI.

454-R dominator flange here,many have made the swap from a too big super victor including myself and have gone quicker and faster,airspeed is king!

reher morrison uses the 454-R up to 860 hp,after seeing that among many other examples I was not taking any chances making the switch

mine is home plenum ported,if you want yours ported pm me

I dont charge much as it is just side work

Merlin X works very well on medium to large displacement BBC. We have one running around out there on a "cruise night" Camaro . 572 c.i. , 11:1... made 878 h.p. on our dyno right out of the box. Car has been 9.34 @145 , 3660lbs , d.o.t. tire. Good intake...often overlooked. Good luck! Johnny

turned my 454-O into a 454-R. yes it was a full days work to just port match, but it works awesome. made over 800 with this set up here with untouched 360 heads on a 509 12:1 compression solid roller. runs high 4.90s in the 1/8 and high 7.90s in the 1/4 consistantly. save yourself some dough and port what you got!
