Yeah they arent bad, when you consider they come with custom fuel rails and TB. For flow the RPMII out flows it. In a shootout recently in Mustang and 5.0 ford it rated third behind the Holley Systemax and the RPMII, but out flowed the Explorer and GT40.

These were released 12-15months ago, and there were supply problems with them initially.

They are a copy/ripoff of the V6 mustang in the states. Good manifold. Yes you are thinking of the Victor, they start to make power above 4000. The operating range for the RPM is 1500-6500
You can order them through Jegs.com, or Rocket/Highperformance world/VPW can supply the Edelbrock

you'd have a explorer, I've been look in to these bbk SSI intakes as i want one my self, if i rember correctly the best price i found was $650us which isn't all that bad but when you add in freight + gst and all the other add in's it's not worth it better of getting a RPMII from in aust think superplus in melbourne had them for $1245.00

I got my RPMII from Rocket, was 1100 landed, bout 2 years ago, and that was when the Aus$ was not so great. Took 3 months to get it in as i didnt want to pay ridiculous postage fees

There is a V1 blown EL XR8 [MR XR8D] over east that has an RPMII intake. He is pushing 400rwhp easily.

Plenty of flow in it, and its been tried and proven, so why not?

You reckon it could be extrude honed and port matched to flow better then the Holley and Edelbrock?

Yes it could. It is a good deal as it comes with fuel rails and a TB, but the RPMII is a better manifold, and if it was given the same treatment, it would be awesome for a blown application. I wouldn't want to see it loose to much bottom end, so i personally wouldn't extrude hone the RPM, but i am not running a forced motor am i

Your running a chemically forced motor brett. But then again the force feeding begins pretty much at the back of the inlet valve so you really don't want to mess with anything before that.
