for the street your probably better off with a dual plane like a performer or rpm air gap.

what are you looking for?

yes as joe suggested, a dual plane intake for mild to moderate perf engines.

the edelbrock performer EPS is a good torque intake for the street.  heres a link for a square bore version, (you didnt mention what carb your running);

And I'm hoping to get a set of vortec heads, thoughts? And I think that means different intake right?

ok, buy a dual plane intake foir the vortec heads. get your compression up to around 9.5.

compression = free hp, torque and improved mileage.

throw the carnb in the trash and buy one with annular boost venturis. summit, holley and quick fuel make them.
