Hey, I have a 60 Ventura with the 389, mild cam, and heads and intake from a 400. I just bought a edelbrock 750 carb for it and I was thinking about getting an aftermarket intake. Iv found a good deal on a preformer, torker, and torker ll. I'm building this car to be a fun car to beat on and put some mustangs and rice burners to shame. I'd love you get into the high 13s. Any suggestions??

I don't know what can it is. It was put in long before I bought the car.

Your intake and cam should be matched for the rpm range in which they work the best. A "mild cam" is usually idle-5000 rpm, and I believe that's the range the Performer (not the Performer RPM) is designed for.
