Intake installation

So I'm planning on doing some intake work this summer. I've already got the CAI, and I want to put on a 70mm tb, plenum, and a better intake manifold. Was hoping to get a little advice from people who have done this sort of work on how much labor I'm going to be doing and any general advice.

Re: Intake installation

Its actually really simple man! i took mine off a few times to understand it, clean the gasket casings, and pretty much see it all. the CAI is easy, just keep those bolts together. Then after that, BAG every bolt with a group name. like fuel rail bolts, intake to engine bolts, Throttlebody to intake bolts, and so on. that way you can't forget where they go. and if its your first time, take a few pictures as you go to remember where to put things back. Yes you have to take off your alternator which is Really simple, because the belt has a tensioner that you can loosen up. and unbolt the alternator, and there ya go! please don't break off the bolt when tightening up the power wire to the alt. though.. It just snapped off when i did cuz i tightened too much and had to buy a brand new alternator Just because of it. it has a red cap over it. you'll see... haha but i suggest replacing gaskets if your taking it all off already. better seals, no vacuum "leaks", and makes you feel better about yourself. your looking at about 1 hour if you follow instructions, or at least around there, and progressively cut it down to maybe a half hour if you know what your doing. hope it helps!

YES YES YES. nuff said. Getting a PI intake with a tune, as well as a TB and CAI can will definitely make you feel a difference in power off the line, HP, and TQ. Not so sure about the typhoon.. someone would have to help me on that. I've heard mixed opinions on those

Re: Intake installation

After reading the description of the trick flow intake and it talking about the ported heads and 75mm throttle body I think im going with it over the Edelbrock Victor Jr. EFI Intake Manifold

Re: Intake installation

Yea I def agree, esp with the mods I have done already and the ED claims you will have to buy a 90 mm throttle body but the Trick flow recommends the 75mm.

Bigger size allows more airflow and better performance. That trick flow manifold fits perfect with a 75mm tb, and is a good manifold by itself. Someone else can probably go into better detail.

That's the same CAI I have and same tb I'm getting, so yeah I'd say that's good lol. Just make sure your plenum and everything match up size wise

What you are referring to is the throttle body spacer....for some reason it makes a sucking noise when you hit the throttle. I have a friend and his car does that but you mainly hear it from the filter area though. It also can be the type of CAI that makes the noise too. Its mixed reviews on that, the noise can be a good thing far as you have a good air flow and good vaccum. The bad thing is there is a air leak somewhere in the seal of the CAI itself. IMO.....
