PERFORMER 308 HOLDEN (IDLE-5500 RPM) Designed for street 253-304-308 c.i.d. Holden V8 engines. This Performer intake manifold is a dual-plane design that is tuned for excellent throttle response from idle to 5500 rpm. The Performer Holden manifold has been designed to fit both cylinder head bolt hole patterns. Pilot holes have been drilled on each side of the exhaust crossover for early or late model cylinder heads and will need to be drilled out depending on application. Will not fit EFI Heads.

Edelbrock Thunder Series AVS or Performer Series (600-750 cfm) Carburetor. ** Do not use high performance or competition type intake gaskets for street application. Due to material deterioration under street driving conditions, internal leakage of both vacuum and oil may occur. Recommended intake gasket: stock gasket set or equivalent.

What made you choose this particular product?
I chose this carburetor to add some smog passable part because this carburetor is 50 state legal and comes with a certificate.
What were you trying to accomplish by adding this product?
I was trying to add better acceleration and with the correct tune a little more horsepower.
Was it easy install? Any installation tips that will help others?
Very simple, 4 bolt points, gasket, and the fuel filter addition.
Once you’ve had a chance to use the product, did it meet your expectations?
Yes. It was much better than the old 4 barrel Rochester carburetor she originally came with.
