Peeing In Your Cheerios
I'm about to buy an elbow and am considering Wilsons or Edelbrocks. Wilsons is double the price and I cant for the life of me see why.
I would like to see some comparison data on that myself. The one thing the single blade throttle bodies have that is hard for a 4 barrel to match is their massive airflow potential. And what seems like a little actually equals a LOT. From the Wilson Manifolds site:Has anyone tested to see if a 4 barrel TB with an EV hat would have better distribution than an elbow with a monoblade style TB? Im a blowthru guy but I've always wondered about that.
I ran my last Edelbrock "as cast", but I will be removing all the casting flash polishing the entire interior of the elbow including the divider blade, as well as matching intake flange to Jim Kuntz intake adapter flange. Based on the 3849 elbow (4150 flange), I think "as cast" it's already big enough that it doesn't really need any enlargement, just some smoothing. My 3849 could have used some matching at the intake flange, but I never did it.do you port the elbows or run them as is?
Yes, I would think it WOULD be a problem if you mounted it sideways, but I don't know that for sure. I can tell you sure that it CAN be mounted in all four directions.Can those be used facing in any position? If so wouldnt there be an issue with that divider facing the wrong way ?
