Im thinking about getting myself a little Christmas present and was curious to see what everyone's opinion is on MHS's elbow for the edelbrock intake manifold. I've heard great things from people about the rpm gains and horsepower and torque gains but would like to see an opinion from someone who might have a little experience with it.

I run one with my Edelbrock manifold. It's actually made by Aaron Price, and MHS buys his product and sells them. Definitely a quality piece. Gains over a Accufab plenum? Eh probably not crazy, but when running high boost or lots of nitrous I'm sure there are some gains due to the increase in volume.

I have one, brand new. Like 15 miles on it. Let me know if your interested. I put a carb on so no need for it anymore. I'll sell it cheaper than MHS.

I love that set up man! it's looking really clean. did you notice any gains in rpm? I'm running comp 270's so i was hoping i would be able to pick up some extra rpm's so i dont have to step down in gear ratio due to the mph ill pick up on nitrous.

I also have the fuel rails need to run the intake too. They were 100 new, I will give them to you for 50 bucks.

Crown vic! I was one the first 5speed modular vic back in the day! Their was a few 5.0l box vics built but no modulars. I took the same principle and applied it, turned out great and still going today. Loads of fun!

My dream is to make the vic look nice and classy then have a bolt on turbo built. Just make around 450 to make it a fun cruiser. You should post up some videos of your vic!

I passed the car on to a friend. He rebuilt the engine, camming it but keeping all the pre '95 factory breathing restrictions. The 95vic was an ugly ride with a ton of room! Loved that space!
