Aftermarket intake

My intake manifold on my 2003 mustang gt is bad and leaking antifreeze. But I was wondering is it worth it to buy and install an aftermarket intake?? Or should I just buy a stock manifold? And if yes to the aftermarket manifold what should I get???

Hmm yeah mines not an urgent need but its something that I've been saving up for and I was looking at the victor jr by edelbrock but it says it needs custom plumbing and stuff for the stock fuel rails and throttle body and I can't afford to get a new throttle body and stuff so idk if anyone has it and can tell me about it..

Or if someone else can tell me about a different intake they have

Re: Aftermarket intake

I put a aftermarket intake manifold on my 02 GT and lost 20 rwhp. Unless you use N20 use the stock intake manifold I put my stock manifold back on and got my stolen power back.

Re: Aftermarket intake

Yeah my dyno guy said it's the way to go. The aftermarket ones are metal causing em to get heat soaked. I took it to the track and every pass I made got gradually slower.

Mine cracked and I bought a professional products typhoon aluminum intake. People say they suck (of course they never had one they just "heard" that they suck) I didn't want another plastic intake. I have had no problems with the typhoon. You won't see much gain unless you combine it with heads and cams.

The typhoon is a ****ty paper weight. The stock works well but if you want to spend a little money the edlebrock works great!! It will give you a nice gain from around 3000rpms up. And then if you ever go FI it is worth around 60 extra rwhp over the stock!! But just FYI to make it work you will need new fuel rails (get the mmr ones not the edlebrock ones) and you will need a 6061 plenum or mmr adapter plate or your throttle body. It's around $500 for all the part but it is an awesome upgrade

Did you dyno pre and post intake install with different intake being the only variable?

I guess you know it is a paper weight from experience?

Yeah I was disappointed they claimed big power gains but once it got hot I started loosing the power.

I really havent noticed any power loss yet. I should've spent the extra $150 an bought a trick flow intake though. If I do experience a power loss I will surely let everyone know

Re: Aftermarket intake

I wondering if you are going to put a supercharger on with intercooler would it really matter with a aftermarket intake being metal or not causing it to get hot and loose power

I'm the 3rd owner of my stang and recently found out one of the previous owners put a Dorman Intake on it. Same deal I'm losing about 20-30 HP with my set up. I feel stupid for not noticing it when I bought it, but I don't know if I would be able to tell the difference from a PI intake.

Yeah I've heard nothing but complaints about dorman and there products. There nothing but an autozone brand
