    Simplified answer is yes, looking at your information that has been provided thus far, I would suggest to stay with your dual plane.

    Back in the 80's when the Vic Jr. came out I did a back to back test at the track with a Holley Street Dominator (no air gaps back then) vs. the Vic Jr. results?, ET was the same on both but MPH was up by 3 with the Vic. Jr. I have used several single plane intakes on the street with no loss of bottom end power on a SB Chevy. On my BB the Dart intake made more tq. than my Eddy RPM performer. Just sharing what worked for me.

    Nitrous on a dual plane intake is generally a "no/No" if using a plate system. I vote for the performer intake, how often do you spend time above 5500 rpm on the street with your gearing ? If you do use nitrous then go with victor jr.

    I'd look for a Holley 300-36 intake. Holley discontinued them but they are rated off-idle to 7200 RPM. Probably one of the most versatile intake manifolds ever produced for a SBC.

    You may get lucky and get somebody to sell one they have on a shelf.
