Default Weiand or Dart intake???

Hello, Have a 489in Chevy that I run in a 82 Olds Cutlass. Am going to a Dominator carb from an 850 Demon. Have both Weiand Team G and a Dart Dominator intakes to replace the current team G with a std 4150 Holley flange. All oval port. Question is which would be the preferred choice to put on the car? Anybody made back-back comparisons? Thanks :? :? :?

I dislike the dart but dislike the team g even more. I did a swap on my 468 from team g to 454R edelbrock and seen huge gains.

Ok, so you seen gains going from a Team G to a Vic, that's no surprise. But what about going from a Dart to a Vic? What is it that you dislike about the dart and why? Just curious, enlighten us~

Depends on what dart, everything I've tested on the track and shown faster with victor out of box to a dart but if you port a dart they really wake up.

David,what would you estimate the HP gains that you got from this swap alone?

If i type it into a online calculator its huge, we are talking just over 2 tenths on a already fairly fast car high 8.20's to low 8.0's. Would venture to say around 50 for sure.

I got a deal on a Dart 41114000GM single plane intake (ebay) new in the box.
They retail for about $400 I won it for $200 something so Ihad to jump on it.
I've ran it since last year with very good results which was the reason I was asking.
Its really tall with divided runners and by comparison looks equal in height and style to a victor R.
I have it off the motor right now - I semi port matched it to the much bigger merlin intake ports, I didn't get carried away - just basically blended them open alittle, you think doing that will help any?

Thx, Cp

I like the Team-G maybe it is just me tho.....had both on the car same basic engine seems to be a little more top end with the Weiand :wink: :wink:
