I found this image, but I don't think it is correct.

But the intake on my engine is labeled D5xxxxx, so that tells me it is from a 1975 model year. The above image tells me it is later than a 1977.

Your correct it should be pre 75  for the 16 bolt and 75 and laterfor the 12 bolt... I used to run a 69 factory 4bbl intake on my 74, it won't work on the 75.

Performer is good off-idle,  the Performer RPM 1500 rpm up. You want a dual-plane intake, and if it has a rear coolant crossover, that's even better. Some intakes for SBF (performer, for one) don't bother with the rear crossover, which may not matter, but the factory put it there for a reason.
Just make sure the manifold is for the right 351. Oh, you can use the early 351W intakes on later 351W heads, just ignore the extra holes. I never tried to use the later intake on earlier heads, I don't know if the holes in the heads are blind (no big deal) or if they go into the water jacket (uh-oh).
The above post should be read in a "Grumpy Old Man" voice.

actually they go down into the lifter valley, but using a 12 bolt manifold on the 16 bolt heads will work but a guy told me that he did that and later without the extra bolts it leaked coolant into the front intake port and into the cylinder! he told me that if i have the extra bolts to get the 16 bolt manifold, so i did! as far as i know the only available 16 bolt manifold that is somewhat available to find is the offenhauser 360* dual plane, so that's what i got for my car, it fit and works great Big smile i paid $100 on ebay for it Thumbs Up

I ran a weiand stealth on my winsor and got good service out of it .The intake is good from idle to 6000 rpm but I know it will turn a good bit more than that.

I have a 1969 Mach 1 with a built 351W and it has factory 4v heads with a Edelbrock Performer on it with only 12 bolts. Never any problems with it. I built the motor in early 90's.
