We ran a super sucker on a very mild 355 in a bracket car and from a 1" moroso spacer to the super sucker we picked up from 7.15(best) to 7.03 the first pass. We really like them and use one on every engine we race!!!!!

And the super suckers must be doing something right, some nascar teams used them in the early 90"s and they was outlawed from all nascar events shortly after people and other teams found out about what they was using....

My thoughts on the spacer is, if you picked up that much putting a spacer on you either need a intake swap or a carb change. You should see some gain but not that much.

We had ran 4 different carbs with extencive jetting on testing nights and we stuck with the most consistant carb, however it was only 2 hundreths off from the fastest carb. We was really close on a carb combo. It did pick up alot, that why we continue to purchace one everytime we sell a engine, they work!!!!!!!!

I've tried/used a lot of different spacers guess I never see them kind of results. But I also do a lot of on track testing with different intakes and carb setups untill I am happy with it.

hammertime have you tested the sniper/sniper jr, or had access, to any feedback, on this intake?

I run a Sniper on my 582, seems to be some gains over a super victor on the track and on the dyno both. Both intake do need some work out of box IMO
