    Default Just installed a new intake manifold...what should I do now?

    Hi Everyone-

    So I replaced intake manifold that came stock on my Hardin Marine 454BBC with an Edelbrock RPM airgap dual plane. Will I need to change the jets in my 715 cfm holly carb or should it run fine the way it was? Will I need to do anything else? I dont know what kind of manifold it was that came off of it but it was every low profile and shitty looking.

    I dont know much about motors so please spare me the ridicule if I left something important out or if this kind of stuff is common knowledge.

    Thanks in advance.

    Retime it , start it !

    See what happens you may have to do some minor adjustments to the carb , but you should not really see a differene in F/r
