    I see dual plane intakes ranging from $150 to $450 sometimes from the same manufacturer. What can be so different?

    The person selling and what they feel is the value.

      How about a example of the same manufacturer/same part number intake at $150 and $450.

      Aaaahhh....... l get the feeling this is regarding “used” pieces.

      if you are talking about eBay, I see it all the time with many different products. I shop and compare religiously. I usually find brand new parts cheaper than used up greasy crap . I think mostly they are hoping to hook that one person that didn't bother to look around OR the seller just didn't bother to see what others like it are selling for.

        Let's use Eldebrock SBC since they are the easiest example.

        2701 $144.
        2825-$757

        Well, 2701 is an entry level dual plane and the 2825 is a CNC ported race oriented single plane. Kinda apples and oranges.
