After market intake manifold options

What options do I have for Intake manifolds and where do I get one that's bigger than the ugly small stock one?

I hear a lot of good things from the windstar intake swap. Cooler air and it just looks cool overall
There's an abundance of threads about it here too

I'm gonna save up, dump my CAI and get a kit for the windstar swap. Does anyone know if it will pass smog in California like that? Lol I know my CAI won't pass

Just keep your stock upper and swap back when it's time to smog, if I remember correctly it's like what every 2 years? Worth it really lol

If you end up doing it, post pictures!


I have a friend who does smog checks. I'll ask him about it. I know my CAI won't pass smog. Imagine unbolting your whole intake? Lol I have no room for my stock intake so it's just bouncing around in my garage

It is not smog legal. With that said the tech doing the inspection may have no clue it doesn't belong or doesn't give a poop about it. A lot of techs won't care what's done because they're getting money to fix it if there is something failing the emissions portion. You may get a strait edge tech who will ding you on everything.
