Edelbrock Polished Performer RPM Intake Manifold for Small Block Chevrolet Engines.

Install this Edelbrock Performer RPM Intake Manifold (71011) under your hood and watch as it maximizes power and throttle response. Made for high-performance street-marine engine applications, such as the 1955-1986 Small Block Chevrolet Engine, the Performer RPM delivers a broad torque curve. The brightly polished finish will shine forth from your engine bay, lending classic looks to your ride. 

Features and Benefits:
- For High-Performance Street/Marine Engines
- Maximizes Power and Improves Throttle Response 
- Made of Aluminum in a Brightly Polished Finish 
- Dual-Plane Design
- Proudly Made in the USA! 

The Performer RPM features a dual-plane design for exceptional throttle response. However, you can still expect the power results of a single-plane part. The Intake Manifold will supply fresh air to the cylinders for reliable performance.

Tech Tips:

- Recommended intake gasket: Edelbrock P/N: EDL7201.

Additional Notes: 
- Use RTV sealant to properly seal end seals, such as Edelbrock High Temp Silicone sealant P/N: EDL1076; do not use end seals gaskets.
- Use Edelbrock bolt kit P/N: EDL8504.
- Sealant must be used on intake bolt threads if the threads extend into lifter valley or coolant passage.
- NPT/Pipe thread fittings require the use of Teflon tape or paste on threads to ensure proper seal.
- Do not overtighten NPT/Pipe fittings; this may cause the aluminum to crack around the fitting boss. NPT/Pipe thread is a tapered thread.
- Hardened washers must be used with intake bolts to ensure proper torque and prevent galling of the aluminum.
- Will not fit under stock Corvette hood.
- Will fit cast iron Chevrolet Bowtie heads, but will not fit 1987 and later cast iron heads.
