So I am about to start modifications soon, trying to decide between the Trick Flow Track heat stage 2 kit or piece together an Edelbrock RPM2 and Edelbrock parts mimic the Trick Flow kit.
What are your thoughts?

It really depends on what you are planning doing with the car. If it's a street driven 302 that you just want to have some fun with I would go with the Trick Flow Top end kit with the Street Burner intake instead of the stage 2. The stage 2 will provide more power at the top end of the RPM range but will sacrifice low end power where you spend more time driving.

Is this on a stock shortblock? Better make sure the stage 2 cam clears, if it is.

While I think the rpmII is pretty much the best intake available, i'd take the tw's/track heat or afr heads over edelbrocks.
