IF YOU CAN,T SMOKE THE TIRES AT WILL,FROM A 60 MPH ROLLING START YOUR ENGINE NEEDS MORE WORK!!"!
IF YOU CAN , YOU NEED BETTER TIRES AND YOUR SUSPENSION NEEDS MORE WORK!!

Ive repeatedly had questions about how much the stock CHEVY TUNED PORT INJECTION INTAKE can be improved thru careful hand porting, while you obviously can increase flow rates your limited in the basic intake design and port cross sectional area.
a bit of research and math will tell you your basically beating a dead horse if your looking to make really impressive power levels, well over about 420hp, as the stock intakes DESIGNED for a 305 cubic inch displacement engine and peak torque will be in the 3500rpm-4000rpm range in most sbc engines due to the port cross sectional area, porting the base and intake runners may help, but its never going to allow the engine to breath efficiently much above 4200rpm if any of the stock or nearly stock components are used, that doesn,t mean the cars performance can,t be significantly improved from the stock 250 hp, but there are other options if your serious about making a good deal more power.

EXAMPLE
if you did a bit of math, a runner or port with a cross sectional area of about 1.7 square inches would effectively max flow at about 3430rpm on a 350 sbc
an additional square inch of cross sectional area , or about 2.7 sq inches would allow that same 350 displacement engine to spin up near 5445 rpm before the port became as restrictive to air flow, and your power curve is dependent on efficient air flow rates.
what this means is that careful selection of better cylinder heads and a different , matching aftermarket intake , along with the correct cam timing can significantly increase your engines potential far beyond what the stock TPI intake is capable of even extensively ported versions.

keep in mind that the port cross sectional area, cam lift and duration and exhaust scavenging, or exhaust back pressure in any engine is limiting air flow, so do the required math to find out at what point in the rpm band the intake design starts being restrictive.
a couple hours , spent reading threads and doing some research can make a huge difference in your engine build results
you might want to keep in mind the cylinder head flow rates ,and cam timing & lift, displacement and effective compression, exhaust scavenging are key to results
