Stock 5.0 throttle body fit on GT 40 intake?

I'm wondering two things?
1-Would my stock intake fit GT40x Aluminum Heads?

2-If I did get a GT40 intake would my stock egr spacer and throttle body fit on it?

Thanks

I would put a gt40 intake on those heads over putting the stock one on.

It will actually matter a good bit.
Anything you can do to increase the airflow is going to have positive benefits.
By reducing the air flow restrictions you allow more air to be passed into the combustion chamber and you will reduce some of the heat caused by compressing that air. You will also make more HP with less boost.
I have a 70MM TB I can hook you up with too.

PM me and we'll talk about it if you are interested.

Alright, lets see. Let me choose heads first and maybe I'll grab that throttle body. I think what he meant was that I can already crack the block by switching my wastegate spring so what's the point of changing, but I understand your point.

That's true, BUT the better flowing, breathing engine components are less stressful on it than forcing the air through the ill flowing stock components. Taking out some heat is always beneficial and lessens the chance of detonation.

Nice, sound good. Plus with my hog combustion I'm already pushing my luck with detonation.

Yeah, with the technology they have nowadays you would think they could get that right at least.


Have you checked out the Mr Freeze methanol injection at AFM?
I think it would be really beneficial in your case.
I have one for my car and it looks like it will work just fine.
I chose it because of its lower cost. I know it doesn't have all the gadgets that the Snow and other injection kits have, but they are also prohibitively expensive too.

I can fully understand how you need a break from it.

Good deals are out there if you keep looking and be patient. I was able to score a fully ported upper and lower explorer intake along with a 70mm holly throttle body and matching egr spacer all for $150. The guy sold his stang and I looked at it in person and made a deal.

Re: Stock 5.0 throttle body fit on GT 40 intake?

Here's one on the Chicago Craigslist for $90 - GT40 Intake

Note: Before you get your hopes up, most of what I see listed as GT40 intakes on Craigslist are not GT40 intakes, they are Explorer intakes. That one has no pics, so it's hard telling what he really has or how good a shape it is in.

It would work ok and at that price you could afford to send it to TMoss Porting and have it worked over to flow much better than a real GT40. Those are pretty much the same thing as a Cobra intake.

I understand. They do look better. I prefer the Cobra or Exploder myself cause they can be ported and I'm all about getting as much power as I can out of the parts I have.


I'd contact that guy just to be sure. You never know when a deal might fall into your lap and you are overdue for some good luck my friend.

Haha that's for sure. My turbo is going to cram block splitting amounts of air anyway.

Here it is. Would I need a spacer or something between the upper and lower?

$90 is what he wants. That's not too bad.

Should the intake have studs coming out where the throttle body and EGR spacer bolt on?

why would you need a spacer? if you are running stock valve covers then i dont see why.

i would do a nice polish job on that before you threw it on.

I used por15 engine enamel
On my intake manifold it's a little pricey but you brush it on with a paint brush its self leveling and looks powder coated when it's dried you can get it from any auto body dealer , I'd show you some picks but can't figure out how to load them

it also says you can spray it on if you want. looks like a great product. thanx for sharing.

my duplicolor cost about 9$ a can. and you need a can of primer. heres my results.

Re: Stock 5.0 throttle body fit on GT 40 intake?

Dang that looks good. I wish I would've thought of that when I had the alternator bracket already out. Gonna write that down as a future project to make my engine look a little tidier.
