I think with that weight you can come real close to your goal.
Your thoughts on intake is right on, having had both intakes, Gaby ported intake and a Victor that was just port match, there was 25 CFM drop in head flow, flowing the heads with the port match Victor bolted to the heads. Zero with Gabby Victor. So youíll have a little lost with port matched intake and 1050 carb
30-40 CFM increase in head flow is worth 10% more hp. But youíll be at 25 CFM lost. But hey run what you got, you never know, you can always play later, more carb, ported intake.
Dave Wilcox also Ports intakes, specially if he already knows what you have.
Not knowing what Gabby intake was, he wanted me to send it...I sent him my Gabby intake when he did my heads, he was honest..man Gabby does nice work didnít have to touch it.
The things they hide, the way they spin things, the excuses that they make and the things they omit.
