Trickflow Intake

Does anyone have the trickflow intake installed on there car? If so can you post some pictures of it? Did you noticed a difference in how the car runs and what mods do you have done? Worthy for the power you get for the money? I am planning on running a supercharger around 9-11 lbs and I already have all the mods done to upgrade to a charger.

Re: Trickflow Intake

They only thing about the Edelbrock i dont like is the fact that it that you have to run a race COMP style throttle body and I dont want to. I still want to use my 75 mm throttle body and it recommends you use a 90 mm. The trick flow I can still reuse my same throttle body without having to buy a extra adaptor for it. The Edlebrock kinda scares me, I dont want to order it and it not work im goin to think on it because there is a plate I cam buy from a site that I can reuse my plenium with throttle body.

Yea you can use the mmr adapter plate to run factory style throttle body but the best route is to use the 6061 plenum on the edelbrock and use 75mm throttle body with that plenum. The eddy flows better than the trickflow. Either way its better than the stock plastic but the eddy is for sure a better intake.

Not to mention i believe the trickflow will need bullitt style throttle cable and unless they are making a different style now it uses the twin style throttle body. If they do make it in single gt style throttle body that would be the choking point i would guess.

yea, I saw the plate but i wonder if you can use the 6061 plenum and still use my 75mm throttle without troubles of it not bolting up? Also, I wonder if it has the areas where heater core hoses hook up too.

Thats what i was looking at if the trickflow needs the twin throttle body setup...

Re: Trickflow Intake

stay with your stocker or do an eddy..the trickflow intake will just make more PEAK hp...the entire power band will be better with the stocker...your still not running enough boost to be able to utilize any after market intake and either choice will be a waste honestly...can make 700 with the stocker..

SO you have this on your car now?

I might just stick with the eddy then cuz its 359 and the elbow is like 109. But I did notice that the elbow for the eddy doesnt have a place for the idle air or vac you lines for...

Slow02GT im might be running low boast right now but I might want to go more later on...

Yes i run the eddy intake, 6061 plenum, bbk 75mm t/b. there is a threaded port in back of the plenum on the intake that you use a barb and run all vac off of. 6061 plenums have several options for iac and fittings for other vacuum sources. 6061 plenum doesnt have a egr hookup though that i know of. Simple cap on the exh manifold cleans up that huge mess anyway.

Re: Trickflow Intake

iight, you got me sold on the eddy but on the fuel rails where is the place for you to put the fuel rail pressure sensor? Does it matter what brand of fuel rails you go with, I see BBK has them with a place for the FRPS.

Buy the rail setup from modularmustangracing.com. They have a much better fuel rail design that comes with all fittings and such and ends up being cheaper. You have to use specific fuel rails for the eddy intakes

Naturally aspirated it makes a difference up top. Supercharged makes huge power difference through entire rpm range

Re: Trickflow Intake

well my engine is new, the heads are fully CNC ported heads, stage 2 or 3 comp cams, LT, 75mm throttle body, SCT tuner and MAS, vortec soon so you think the intake setup would be worth it with all of this ? or should I say would I notice a difference.

Re: Trickflow Intake

Have you looked at the new Street intake? I would suggest it if you have not bought your intake yet. As you can see in the graph below there has been some major improvement made to the street intake to maintain great torque and still make the HP that the Track Heat intake has to offer.

Re: Trickflow Intake

It is comparing the Street intake to the Track heat intake on the same bottom end. The Street intake being the one in red. As you can see it provides a much better torque curve through out the entire RMP range and makes more HP up to 5800. At 5800 is where the Track Heat intake takes over.
