I have a S&H car with a 1969 351W 4v bored .030 over with a 492 lift cam and a 282 duration if I recall been too many years ago motor was built so getting a little foggy in my memory exactly but I will say this is close.It has headers with full dual exhaust and a 600 Holley carb with a factory 351 4V intake. I am looking to change the intake to an Aluminum 1. I am looking for advise as to what you all think would work well with my setup. I do not race the car but I am looking for more power for all around fun just like everyone else. I  had a friend tell me he likes Weiand  and I have had some say Edelbrock. I just don't know for sure which way to go. I do want it all under hood though. I have a similar motor setup in my 1969 Mach 1 and I am running a Edelbrock Performer. I didn't know if to go that way or to go Performer RPM or if that would be too tall to fit under hood. My friend said go Weiand but I am not familiar with those at all. Please advise.Thanks.

i have an offenhauser 360* dual plane on my 74 351w fits and works fine, that's about the only one i've found that is a 16 bolt manifold (75 and later are 12 bolts). i have a weiand on my vette (was on it when i bought it) and most every other car i have edelbrock performers on

You probably want a dual plane manifold. Everyone seems to like the edelbrocks no matter what forum I go on, chevy ford mopar everyone likes them. I put a used performer on my 302 and it works great for my combo. Ran a few on other engines and they worked well too.
