    I’ve used all three. Started off with a Performer, then went TPDP, now TPSP.

    When your talking mild 355 with early heads, as has already been said on this thread, it’s the heads holding back the combo, not the manifold. Unless you have had some good head work done, a Performer will work fine.

    TK has built several mild early headed budget 355’s with half decent minor port work, a hydraulic in the 230’s that have a Performer fitted, and the Performer manifold fitted isn’t holding them back.

    These engines are coincidently all in Holden Statesman’s with 3,500 stall, 3.55 gears and make around 400hp with good torque to move the heavy car.

    When you have very good head work and a solid cam and wanna make 400+ you look at a TPDP.

    When you don’t care about torque under 4,000, go a TP single.

    That’s my 2c.

    Bargain. Unfortunately it’s cost more more than a few cents to figure that all out... working good now though.

    Now I just gotta get the vac controlled advance curve dialed in

    Lol - true Paul.

    And with the SP it doesn’t foul the plugs, and is not a soggy piece of sh1t under 4K, it doesn’t fuel up at lights or run like a pig on the street.

    Where are you going to get a 0-1* advance unit from?

    Looking at the plugs and ex' ports, the fuel distibution isn't bad either, (on mine, that is) yet people still baulk at the thought of using one.

    Yet if you putter around town at 2k rpm or less but still want some getup and go to 6k rpm the dual plane wins.
    That said, I have only had single planes in the last 20 years.

    One of Vizards's books should have the info you're looking for to help with that Bill.

    No listen to EH, he knows much more than Vizard..............

    Whens your next seminar EH? Is it free? People pay for Vizard's seminars because I presume they think he knows what he is talking about...& worth the money.

    Settle down Poncho, you're losing it.

    You want to hope anyone reading this doesn't destroy their engine, using the vacuum advance method you so strongly advocate.
