When it comes to intakes, Survival offers a number of single- and dual-plane options for one or two carbs. For the budget 445, Barry really likes Edelbrock's dual-plane Performer RPM. "For about $340, it's hard to beat." He has successfully used this intake at FE power levels up to 600 hp. Blue Thunder also makes a very viable alternative with the added advantage of a front-mount oil filler tube port (for those '65 and earlier applications), as well as all the factory vacuum ports.
