I have the Edelbrock Performer RPM 7104 Intake Manifold, the Holley 108-118 base gasket, and the Holley 0-9895 carburetor. Will there be any need to increase primary jet size on carb with the upgrade of the intake from Performer to Performer RPM?

Only way to check this is with a A/F ratio meter or on a dyno. But i would say carbs always need to be tuned to the specs of your engine to get the best out of it.

Before you worry about jets, make sure 1) your engine can really use that intake manifold and 2) that it will fit under your hood.

Typically, Performer RPMs will not fit under a stock hood.

Hib's right on with the fit... both under the hood and for the engine itself.

As Hib advised and the text at the link provided stated: clearance problems.

As the basic Rochester family had 1-3/8" primaries and 2-1/4" secondaries, I believe the stock Rochester was a M4MC which had ~750 CFM. However, there are a lot of Rochester 4 barrel carburetors, so I could easily be wrong.

We used to add a notch to the GM "snowflake" manifolds. ;)
