Default Skunk 2 IM vs. Edelbrock IM

Ok so the Edelbrock performer intake manifolds for sport compact are suppoused to do most if there power from 2000 to 7000, but my all time fav the Skunk 2 are rated 3000 to 7500.... so in your mind whats fact and whats foe, what do you like the best, and are Edelbrock worth the money.

I haven't ever heard of the Edelbrock unit having ONE single problem. Do we really need to get into a Skunk bashfest when there are already so many? Hmmmm I wonder which one I would choose.

Honestly i've heard a few things. One of the most common is that the skunk2 is a harder fit sometimes, but other than that, i believe they are fairly similar in design. Performance they're probably not too different, but i've never heard complaints with the edelbrock

Edelbrock has some sick runner port sizes!!!

Is skunk2 made in america?? ONly reason I ask is because even though we drive japanese cars, we should take every chance we can and buy american parts.

i trust any jap part way more then i do an american one.

i read a article about the edlebrock and it only added 5.3 hp on a stock motor.

i dont know about the skunk2 power output on a d but it is spec'ed at 12.3hp at the wheels on a b16 by h.p. books.

and yes it is made in america (skunk2)

On a "B", what does the victor x from Edelbrock bring for a gain on a "B"?? Edelbrvock also fits in the engine bay right, skunk2 does not. Its a better design, and in my mind with the right headwork done, will net a higher gain that the skunk2 piece.

I would buy american cars if they were worth their cost, but they are not! However I try to take every opportunity I can to keep american people working!!

1. if it is ant resemblense of there cars (honda) the shit is built to last.

2. the EG edlebrock manifold only put out 6.1 on a b16

3. yes there are american. i cant remember the guy's name but he lives in cali.

4. no fatfourfan


you probally already do more for america then you think. when you by the #1 combo at mcdonalds, or the two taco for 99c you buy on your way to work everyday. there is tons of stuff you do for your country every day and never even notice.


skunk2 only makes parts for imports, that is all they do, so IMO they know what they are doing, vs edlebrock who might just slap a better looking product together to make money.

not knocking just my thoughts

Im going to have to go ahead and disagree with you on that part. I believe Edeblrock is far from a company that just slaps together a product, especially entering the highly competitive and highly lucrative import scene. Many companies already just jump into things without giving them thought, which is something Edelbrock I am sure will not subscribe to!

I plan on buying the edelbrock IM when the funds become available. I already have an edelbrock short shifter. that thing is super nice.

it's the only shifter that I've seen that has a bend toward the driver. it has a self-lubricating bearing in the shifter. it shifts super smooth.

if they put that much work and thought into a shifter, I believe they would make a great IM.

Now on the flip-side of things!
