APPLICATION
2166, 3766
B, C,
Performer 460: Designed for street 429/460 c.i.d. Ford V8s. Will not accept factory
spread-bore carburetor. Will not fit 429 Cobra-Jet or 1988-later engines. #3766 accepts
OEM EGR plate and EGR valve. For replacement EGR plate gasket, use Edelbrock #3898.
7166
A, C,
Performer RPM 460: Designed for 429/460 c.i.d. Ford V8s for high-performance use.
Fits standard or Cobra-Jet cylinder heads. Will accept square-bore or spread-bore
carburetors. No provision for exhaust heated choke. Will not fit 1988-later engines.
7566
A, C,
RPM Air-Gap 460: Designed for 429/460 c.i.d. Ford V8s for high-performance use. Fits
standard or Cobra-Jet cylinder heads. Features an Air-Gap design, resulting in a cooler,
denser charge for more power. No provisions for exhaust heated chokes and no exhaust
crossover.
A - Not legal for sale or use on pollution controlled motor vehicles.
B - Stock replacement/street legal in some applications. See “Stock Replacement Parts List for Intake Manifolds” insert, or Catalog for details.
C - Available in additional finishes, such as polished, PermaStar, or EnduraShine. See Catalog for details.
•
EGR SYSTEMS: Edelbrock EGR-equipped Performer manifolds are intended as a direct functionally identical replacement for
their O.E.M. counterparts. All exhaust emissions or emissions related stock components are intended to be retained and
functional. Non-EGR equipped manifolds will not accept stock EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) equipment. EGR systems are
used on most 1972 and later model vehicles. Check local laws for requirements.
•
AIR CLEANER: On some applications when using a Performer or Thunder Series carburetor, there may be interference with the
stock air cleaner. If this occurs, use Edelbrock adapter #8092, or Pro-Flo Air Cleaner #1221 (or equivalent). CAUTION: Check
for clearance before closing the hood when using this spacer or air cleaner. See “General Intake Manifold Installation
Instructions” for instructions on how to check the hood clearance.

•
THROTTLE BRACKETS: Due to the design of Performer manifolds, the throttle and kickdown bracket on some vehicles may
require modification to fit. When using Edelbrock carburetors, use #1495 or #1848 throttle plate kit. Manifolds #3766, #7166,
and #7566 are supplied with two throttle bracket spacers which may be required on some installations to align the throttle
bracket with the OEM carburetor linkage.
•
GASKETS: Do not use competition-style intake gaskets for this street manifold. Due to material deterioration over time, internal
leakage of vacuum, oil, and coolant may occur.

PREP AND TUNING FOR POWER:
NOTE: Local emission laws must be checked for legality of any carburetor or ignition changes.
Performer Series Intake Manifolds
1. The long equal length runners in the Performer manifold create a very strong signal to the carburetor. In some applications,
the stock rods or jets may need changing for best overall performance. Refer to your carburetor owner's manual for details.
2) Performer manifolds deliver excellent drivability and power utilizing stock distributor settings. Some applications may
benefit from resetting the initial advance ±2° from the factory specification.
3) Aftermarket ignitions and more aggressive advance curves may be used with Performer packages.
4) Installation of aftermarket headers or camshafts may lean the carburetor calibration. Should this occur recalibrate with a
richer jet.
Performer RPM Series Intake Manifolds
1. Due to design, the fuel / air mixture and cylinder charging are very efficient with Performer RPM or RPM Air-Gap manifolds.
Generally speaking, the stock jetting for a Performer Series or Thunder Series carburetor will not need changing. Specific
applications may show an increase in power by tuning the fuel mixture.
2. Aftermarket distributor curve kits may be used with Performer RPM series manifolds.
3. Use modified or high performance cylinder heads such as our Performer RPM, and port-match the manifold to the heads.
4. The compression ratio should be at least 9.5 to 1 to work properly with Performer RPM camshafts.
5. Installation of aftermarket headers, camshafts or both with an Edelbrock Performer RPM series manifold may lean carburetor
calibration. Should this condition occur, recalibrate with a richer jet.
•
CAMSHAFT AND HEADERS: The Performer Series manifolds are compatible with aftermarket camshafts and headers designed
to work in the idle-5500 rpm range. Edelbrock has developed a dyno-matched, street proven camshaft (#2167 for 429/460 c.i.d.
engines) for use with Performer Series intake manifolds. Header primary tube diameter should be 1-3/4". Performer RPM Series
manifolds are compatible with aftermarket camshafts and headers designed to work in the 1500-6500 rpm range. Edelbrock
has developed a dyno-matched, street proven camshaft (#7167 for 429/460 c.i.d. engines) for use with Performer RPM series
manifolds (see catalog for details). Header primary tube diameter should be 1-7/8"-2”.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
4) Do not use cork or rubber end seals. Use RTV silicone
sealer instead. Apply a ¼" high bead across each block
end seal surface, overlapping the intake gasket at the four
corners. This method will eliminate end seal slippage.
5) Install the intake manifold and hold-down bolts. Torque all
of the manifold bolts in two steps by the sequence shown
in Figure 1 to 25 ft/lbs.
1) Use only recommended intake gaskets set when installing
this intake manifold. For ease of installation, we
recommend Edelbrock Intake Manifold Bolt & Washer Kit
#8569.
2) Fully clean the cylinder head intake flanges and the engine
block end seal surfaces.
3) Apply Edelbrock Gasgacinch sealant P/N 9300 to both
cylinder head flanges and to the cylinder head side of the
gaskets, allow to air dry, and attach the intake gaskets.
