There's a bit of a move to try and get Edelbrock to make one of their new-ish style of RPM Performer Air Gap manifolds to suit Poly 318s.

This would mean that a much higher performance manifold would be available for the whole range of Polys, would it not? Not the very earliest ones, but the 313s, 318s... 303s as well? That's a lot of cars in the late fifties and sixties, true?

Gary Pavlovich is approaching Edelbrock following my nephew's suggestion that it could work. Gary thinks there's a market for them that would make it worth Edelbrock's while to do it.

Here's an article about testing such a manifold, which shows that it has a huge torque spread on other engines:

Here's Edelbrock's page on the present range:

Can we have some kind of indication what interest there would be from members of this forum in such a manifold? With power from 1500 to 6500rpm, it sounds good for both street and strip.

Good luck with that Ray! I personally don't have anything with the Poly engine in it, but there are a lot of people that are still running that engine. I think Weiand or Offenhauser make a dual 4bbl. intake for that engine. Early on that engine could be had with a dual 4bbl. set-up and a single 4bbl. set-up. Good luck finding those factory intakes. Rarer than rare.
