Looks like a knockoff of a super Vic.  No flow info given...I'd just buy an edelbrock; at least I know what I'm buying.

Not exactly a knockoff.  The carb pad height is 1 1/4" taller than a Super Victor and over 1/2" taller than even a Victor Glidden intake.

Still I don't know anyone who has run one yet.

Its a World Products intake, which I believe is produced by CHI.

The link says it's either missing or off limits to me. The chi intakes are almost 50% more.

Probably because of your low post count.

so add a carb spacer? 

these days, you never know if you're getting good stuff or chinese mystery metal.  at least we know that edelbrock stuff is made in the usa.  that counts for a lot in my book.

Do you want to add a penthouse for the air cleaner?  Oh, you meant add one to the Edelbrock.

these days, you never know if you're getting good stuff or chinese mystery metal.  at least we know that edelbrock stuff is made in the usa.  that counts for a lot in my book.  

The Bill Mitchell link said Made in America as well.  

I don't have a dog in this fight so I don't care.  I was just pointing out it isn't dimensionally the typical knock off of an Edelbrock product.

Its a World Products intake, which I believe is produced by CHI.

I ended up buying two of the 4500 pad World Products intakes for my 445" build.  My plan was to have it ported and then modified for EFI.  The first one the intake was obviously a "blem" as it seemed extra wide and literally just had a weird look to it. Like crooked. I sent it back and got a replacement.  The ports were so far off in the replacement intake that I wasn't sure even porting was going to correct it.  I sent it back also.  I ended up buying an EFI Super Victor and heavily modifying the plenum and welding on a 4500 "spacer".  It worked pretty damn well.

In later talks with Duane Busch I found out that the WP intakes are CHI blems. 

I do not know about the Bill Mitchell ones... so... anyway.

Makes my point quite nicely.

I also don't have a dog in the race, just sharing my point of view fwiw.

It's all good.

Man, an entire line of products that are all factory seconds?  What is the point?  It doesn't seem like it would be worth the hit to your reputation.

Anymore, most of their reputation is bad anyways.

Even when World was producing "good" products, it was common to find horrible casting shift in their products.

And I hear that their blocks are just a confusing nightmare of odd fitments
