I'm running an Edelbrock Performer 289 and have to reseal it.
In the kit ( Felpro 1250 ) there is a gasket to block off the exhaust cross over.
Should this be blocked off? Why or why not?
Thanx, Mike

The crossover uses exhaust gas to heat the floor of the manifold plenum. Makes for better cold weather driveability and it helps vaporize the mix. Not really good for higher performance. I live in a relatively warm climate and always block the crossover with an aluminium intake.

With your location indicating "No SoCal", i'd block it.
