    Default dart single plane and is it worth it

    Im in the process of rebuilding my 540 the recipe consist of the following.

    4340 4.250 crank
    4340 6.385 h-beams
    10.3 to 1 pistons(119CC)...last go round it was 9 to 1
    DART PRO 1 325 2.300/1.880
    Custom cam(cstruab)
    Lightning headers
    Professional products single plane intake
    850d/p
    msd ignition

    This is going in 29' warlock. My question would going to a Dart or Edelbrock single plane intake make any difference r maybe bigger carb

    i've got a straub cam and dart single on my 10.5 to 1 468 and its working awesome at 6100 wot i like the dart lil more than the edel, nicer intake imo you need a dominator on that thing, find a nice progressive linkage dominator 1050 for it.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    The Dart intake is a nice piece.

    On the other hand, we run Professional Products intakes on some circle track engines after finding out in dyno testing by a respected race engine builder, they made more horsepower than the Edelbrock. We get even plug readings.

    I have a mint condition Dart single plane for standard deck, rect port, Dominator flange.

    I also have a brand new polished Wieand single plane for standard deck, rect port, Dominator flange.

    What rpm range ?

    I think I'd have a hard time going with anything less than a 1,050.

    Dart intakes aren't as good as Ede's out of the box. 850 might be a little small on that 540...if staying with the 4150 intake, I'd get the biggest carb you could like the 80496, or 80513, or go 4500 and put a 1050 on it like the 8082. As far as the ProProducts intake, I'd like to see their R&D...I'm not into supporting cheap copycat products. We're already losing too many of the guys that put this stuff on the map to imposters.

    In that case your 850 will be fine.

    Maybe that's part of why his max was only 5300...

    I guess I don't...if you're not wanting to increase performance, then why did you raise the compression a full point, and what's the point of this thread??
    FWIW...I have a Vic Jr in the parts section if you're interested...

    Default What about these?

    Does anyone have any experience with these? They look like they'd make power. A buddy has one on his 565 in a Camaro and it runs good.

    It never ceases to amaze me how many people in this country assume their job isn't in jeopardy my chinese imports. I don't care if you work in a McDonalds, your job is on the line, because your customers worked for Edelbrock, Dart, World, etc. Just a little something to think about when you load the wife and kids into the Toyata and head for WalMart for a little Christmas shopping.
