Performer Intake Manifold for AMC V8 Review
Some info provided by
Performer® Manifolds (idle to 5500 rpm)
Performer manifolds are dual-plane, low-rise intake
manifolds with a 180° firing order and patented runner
design that you won't find in other brands. This patented
design greatly improves torque over a wide rpm range for
excellent throttle response, especially off-idle through the
mid-range. Throttle Performers are ideal for passenger cars,
trucks, 4x4s, tow vehicles and RVs. There are EGR and non-EGR
versions available for most domestic V8 and some V6 engines.
Most Performer intakes are 50-state street legal, when used
with the correct carburetor and in the correct application.
Check the individual listings for detailed information.

Power Curve Map
This could be
the best all around manifold for a Jeep with a V8. It
provides good torque and horsepower across it's rpm range.
We installed on of these onto
Mike's CJ-5 which is equipped with an AMC 360 V8.
This engine was tired and needed a rebuild - See the rebuild
article - The engine was going to serve in a Jeep that was
primarily going to run trails and needed to provide good
torque for slow trail riding.
performed with the engine out of the Jeep and was rather
straight forward. An Edelbrock Performer Camshaft and
system complemented the rest of the set up. The Jeep's
performance is exceptional. It's trail manners are
predictable and provide excellent slow rpm managability.
