Trick flow makes a really decent one and it won't brake the bank it's also 75mm for 109$ on summit

Id go 75 for plenum would be kinda pointless to go 70mm for the same price as a 75. You'll pick up more power any how with a larger one

Whatever you do make sure to replace the plenum because that's the biggest choke on the intake side.

That plenum carried over from the NPI motors.

The Trickflow some have mentioned from summit is the way to go. It's the best bang for your buck and a great quality unit. Accufab is great too but you can accomplish the same thing with the Trickflow and get pretty much the same results.

Am i to understand that your low end torque got boosted to around 250hp at 2.5k rpm?

it is and it will work fine but that's a lot of money for a throttle body and plenum. not trying to pursued you on brands and stuff but TrickFlow makes the same thing and you'll save 100$ or so. Its like 109 for the plenum and 189 for the throttle body. There plenum is a 75mm and throttle body is either 70 or 75mm which either you choose to run

I have that plenum with no issues. My bbk 75mm i just removed. Testing something out with the stock intake, i wanna see if it makes a dif in maf temps in traffic. Long story. But.i kinda noticed the bbk tb was a bit clunky and harder to move.

Also i was told that the plenum makes the intake sound louder.

The great thing about the Bullitt intake is the much broader power band than the PI intake. Torque starts off much sooner with it. It's normal bolt on GT power, but the curve is much better.

Intake manifold? My understanding that the metal. Ones are for racing, cuz regular driving they absorb a lot of heat.

If anything heat is fine for daily driving. You want something that does not absorb hear for racing.

Ah. I thought more cooling was occuring during racing. Is metal intakes mostly to handle forced induction?

Power wise there is no difference between the 70mm and the 75mm when your just NA!.. Now if your planing FI down the road, go with the 75mm!.. Now as far as any Heat Soak with a metal intake, personally I have not seen any more or less than with the stock one!.. Click image for larger version

When racing you are often at higher speeds, but that air goes into the radiator to cool the engines coolant, it doesn't do as much for the manifold.

PI intake can take more forced induction than the stock bottom end can. Correct budget friendly combo for a bolt on 2V is the stock PI intake and the TFS plenum/75mm throttle body combo on Summit for $279. Anything else is just wasting money until you get a built motor with a lot of boost.

SVE is a chinese copy of the TFS stuff which is made in the USA. SVE stuff will likely be fine but...

I read a book about the 4.6 mustang engine and a group of people would put bolt ons and dyno the engine to see what kind of gains they would get. Accufab did the best in gains but the trickflow plenum was just right behind it. Ive also heard from people to stay away from 75 mm tb unless your going to put a power adder on. Bbk's 70mm tb is a good choice if your just doing bolt ons. I had the trick flow plenum and bbk 70mm tb on mine but never got around to dyno and see what the gains were because i ended up putting a tork tech kit in.
