Last Review Posted 1986-1993 5.0L Mustang SSI-Series Intake Manifold
Hi. I have an SSI manifold on a Ford crate engine in a kit cobra. I figured at 350 horse and 2200 lbs. it should move, and I wanted the latest greatest manifold. Unfortunately, what moved was coolant through the manifold in a fissure and leaked out by the #4 cylinder manifold bolt. Also I have to mention the spacing on the fuel rails does not match the spacing on the intake ports so the injectors are not parallel, and they leaked gasoline on the intake manifold. This was after I spent 2 hours grinding casting flash out of intake runners to improve flow.<br /><br />I contacted John Brockman at BBK who has been very gracious and helpful. I boxed up the manifold and fuel rails to return to BBK, but FedEx has no record of a request to pick it up for a return to BBK.<br /><br />I have been trying so hard to get this car together and now I am stuck with a manifold that leaks. I have no other recourse than to sue BBK in small claims court.<br /><br />Cut and paste these links into your browser for some picutres:<br /><br />http://www.allfordmustangs.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=12355<br /><br/>http://www.allfordmustangs.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=12356<br/><br>http://www.allfordmustangs.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=12357<br /><br/>http://www.allfordmustangs.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=12358<br /><br/>http://forums.stangnet.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=40366&d=1132503834<br /><br />It looks good so it got a 1... just don't add coolant or fuel.
