    Default Intake manifold porting

    Hi guys, i have an Edelbrock Victor Ram that i would like to get ported for my 555 BBC. I bought the manifold some years back and it was more of just a lake motor, now it is pretty much a full tilt race deal so i would like to squeeze everything i can out of it. Just curious who some of you have used in the past and recommend, thanks in advance!

    What kind of hp gain could you achieve with a good port job?

    What's the application on the 555? The Vic Ram is pretty good out of the box as far as runner size, but it might need a little work for a 555 turning some rpm. Mostly, they need a LOT of cleaning up in the plenum area around the runner entries. That, and some plenum volume.

    The engine is in a 500lb runnerbottom that i plan on running in the njba next season. Im gonna keep the max rpm at 7500, i have seen a few of these manifolds with a plastic spacer between the manifold and top plate. Im guessing that aids in the plenum volume and im also guessing they are custom made and not something you can just buy from summit or your local speed shop. Thanks for the responses.

    OK, Steigemeyer does do good work. He is a character. LOL But, beautiful work. Have dealt with him a bunch years ago.


    Hey, porters... I see the 3m 747d abrasive in 60g seems to be the fav. I have blown up my last damn cheap roll and threw them all in the trash. (hot head). So, where can I buy them without the raping? And whos mandrels are you using with them? A good piece.
    AND does the dimmer switch thing work without killing electric grinders... or should i just buy the router control, or a variable frequency drive?
    I have an old ???? Corporation from Racing WI grinder. Model 8524-210 I can't even read the name on it anymore. It is probably 20+ years old. Light. 15000 rpm max. It is black... I sure wish I could read the tag. I have replaced brushes and bearings over the years a few times. It is a workhorse, though. Dumore maybe??

    DNE used to carry these but last i checked with Dave he didn't have the program for them anymore because of a hard drive crash his supplier had. Not sure if that's still true because it's been at least a year since I've checked back in with him. If you find these let me know because i'm looking for one too!
