Default Intake Manifold Help needed

I am needing to replace my intake manifold (self inflicted damage) I am a rookie at this so please go easy on me lol. The manifold on it now is an Edlebrock. Though I can't seem to find a model number on it. I would like to replace it with the same style. I am not to familiar with the terminology.(single plane, dual plane, air gap etc) I am reading while looking to replace it. This is for a 402 BB.

Your best bet for street use is Edelbrock dual plane RPM manifold. Call their Tech Support and they'll walk you through it.
Single plane manifolds are mostly for high-performance applications.

..yea, ..on those Big block, ya need to remove the valve covers.'cause the lip of the valve cover overlap the head a bit,but,just enought to make it kind of a pain in the butt.



..once the covers are off,then the intake manifold comes off easier..

welcome Michael

spread bore or square bore carb??

peanut or oval or square port heads??

do you need the heat riser or carb heat and choke heat??

edelbrock should have a number on it some where, look on the rear behind the carb??

I agree with Stevesolo16. That manifold is a great all around manifold. It will give you plenty of low end torque and plenty of mid power. Good luck!

Well I broke a bolt removing the thermostat housing. The while using a cheap easy out set I broke the tip of the extractor in the bolt. Tried to drill that out and just ended up destroying it.

I'm sure it can be repaired at little to no cost, step 1 is removing the intake so you can work on it easier.


Well you sure did a number on it, lol hard to tell but it still could be repairable and not a total loss.

BTW...... there's 2 Torker manifolds. A Torker and a Torker II. Yours looks like an original Torker.

that is a very short [low profile] single plane non-airgap manifold,,
square bore,, not sure if it has a heatriser or not..

looks a lot like the "Torker II" maybe a 2.0 ?? there were different makes/numbers..

look on the rear for the name..
get the head casting number, that will tell what kind of port they are..

That can be fixed. Find a good machine shop in your area. Less than the cost of a new one I'm sure, good luck.
