would i be correct in assuming that when choosing an intake manifold that i should choose one with and rpm range that is close to the cams rpm range?

for instance if the cam specs say 1600-5800 rpm,that a good intake for it would be like 1500-6000 rpm or idle-6000 or something like that?

and an intake with like 2500-7000 would not work well with that cam?

or am i way off?

just trying to learn some stuff

thanks

Intake

Yep you are on the right track. But you also want to consider what you are doing with the car, Street or strip? Dual plane works better on the street because of the broader torque curve at lower RPM. Like stop lite to stop lite. Are you with me:D Single plane is better for strip beacause the perform better at higher RPM like after the 60 foot mark when leaving the starting line at 2500 RPM or higher. Hope this helps out!!!!!!!
