intake manifold

  1. 2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    Hello all, I've been thinking of getting a bit more power from my engine, and I thought a good place to start (The car came with a short ram intake) is an intake manifold. However, when I was scouring the internet, I could not find a performance one. All I could find was a supercharger for the...

    I bought my 2012 Mustang last March it runs and idles great. Recently I removed factory throttle body and cleaned it with TB cleaner. It looked pretty dirty to me! I changed the spark plugs too, and they seemed really bad too! There was quite a bit of oil residue on the intake manifold too, you...

    A few questions in one here. First, if I were to install a GT40 upper and lower intake manifold on my stock 302 would the GT40 heads also be necessary or can it be a standalone modification? And second, what years of the Explorer had the intake manifold/head setup in question? Thanks all.

    I am installing A/C and I am running the heater hoses, but forgot which one is what.. I have the 200ci line 6 1966 mustang. Is the water pump on the drivers side of the engine and intake on the passenger side? I can not find anything to help me :/ Please help if you can! I know I sound stupid...

    I was quoted $1200 for install and tune of a ford racing intake manifold. Is it worth it? Will it add HP. Do I need a after market throttle body? Anyone saw hp difference after installing ford racing intake manifold?

    Hey all, Just installed an Edelbrock Performer and the intake runners are too tall for the old heater hose fitting. Anyone know where I can get a taller one...I'm sure theres got to be something for this problem. Thanks, Adam

    my question is just as the title says, do aftermarket heads for a 4.0L exist ? or a intake for that matter

    hello, i was looking to get some extra hp from my 1996 mustang with 4.6 with upgraded pi intake (not the heads) i purchased the PP upper Intake Plenum, many posts about throttle body to plenum matching (ad porting the plenum), what i cannot find is anything about plenum to intake manifold...

    The infamous intake manifold finally crapped out on me (the thermostat housing broke) so I got an improved one from a lincoln navigator, first thing I noticed when I took off the old one is that the area around cylinder 1 has pits and corrosion, I paid it no mind and put the other intake on...

    I am looking into purchasing an aftermarket intake manifold for my 2006 GT with a procharger installed. I have been looking at the ford racing one. Just curious to know what others like and dislike. So how about it, what is the best intake manifold out there for my supercharged GT?

    I have to admit that I am more ambitious than knowledgeable in this dept. I have changed many things in my engine bay but this is one category that seems a little stressful. I am looking to update and COLOR my 2004 3.8L v6 Manifold and valve covers and would ultimately like a photo step by step...

    So Im not sure yet if my motor is 289 (it was originally) or 302. I had it rebuilt almost 8 years ago and asked for a 289 and thats what the shop told they put in it, found 302 heads on the motor. If it is a 289 with 302 heads, do I have to run a 302 intake manifold or will the performer 289 I...

    I have a 2000 Mustang GT with 152,000 miles and a manual tranny. About 5 months ago, I was having this problem of a stutter when under medium to heavy acceleration. It did it more when it was revving lower than higher. The CEL finally came on saying I had a misfire (this was the 2nd time I've...

    My Tempurature gauge showed i was running a little hot the other day. found the coolant low but i checked all the fluids a couple weeks ago. so ive been keeping an eye on it. i found the intake manifold leaking from the front pipe that wraps behind the alternator. Heres the thing, it leaks when...

    I notice the RPM air gap has no exhaust x-over but the RPM and Performer do. If my heads have the ports don't I need the intake that provides for that? What's the disadvantage if any by putting the Air gap on a set of heads that have the x-over ports?

    I have a 1997 mustang gt that I am replacing the intake manifold with a dorman. The intake manifold already had the gaskets inside of it, (I bought it used) do i have to put gaskets on the engine heads or will that be double gasketing? Pretty much asking if I need Redirect Notice and Redirect Notice
