EDELBROCK VICTOR JR.
Like the Mast intake, the Edelbrock Victor Jr. was designed to run in injected form as well. Luckily, Edelbrock supplied the necessary fuel rail and injectors that allowed us to plug the injector holes while running with the carburetor. Equipped with the Holley 950 Ultra XP carb, the LS3 stroker produced
651 hp at 6,800 rpm and 564 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm. Note that the Victor Jr. produced higher peak numbers than its dual-plane brother, the Performer RPM, but the 500 lb-ft of torque produced at 4,000 rpm couldn’t match the dual plane’s 533 lb-ft. The single-plane Victor Jr. did offer higher average power and torque numbers than the dual plane, a sure indication that acceleration (at a dragstrip) would be better with the single plane.
