Default professional products intake

Any reveiws on the professional products typhoon intake? I have the opportunity to buy one that has been ported and polished. Its chrome as well. The upper and lower are both chrome and I can get it for $200 I'm running basically bone stock motor, with cai,smog pump delete, and full exaust. How would I benefit from buying this? Thanks

For $200 is not a bad price but those words "ported and polished" get tossed around alot. Depending on who did the job means either they helped, hurt or really did nothing to improve flow characteristics. Anybody can make the ports bigger but it is the ones who know how to shape the ports and where to do so.

Well I hope you will upgrade your throttle body while you are at it also. Putting this intake on will move your powerband a little higher in the RPM range.

This intake is good for stock to mild set ups so you should be fine. Expect about 10 to 15 HP increase with the throttle body.

Do you have any proof or experience that he will loose lowend power?


When my car had stock e7's i swapped the stock intake for a Typhoon i got off cragslist for $100, at the same time i added a 70mm tb and ebay cai.
Went to the track, Those mods only knocked off .12 from my time, and i gained 1.5mph, My car has an AOD and at the time with stock E7's it would not spin off the line at all. My 60ft times were the exact same before and after the intake swap, no loss of TDL here

When i did a explorer intake with a ported lower and 70mmtb my lowend sucked. but from 3-6k it was nice.

but its a fact you sacrifice one or the other.. the 5.0 is built for tq low to mid thats why it stops pulling at 45-5k after you do the intake you will notice that it revs alot higher and pulls harder in higher rpm.

Its not just that intake any that flow good will.

I have one on my 351w. Great intake. from what i hear, some of them the ports don't always line up 100%(they are made in china), but mine was spot on
