From what I hear you pick up a little top end and lose some bottom end on a stock motor.

Losing a little bottom end power isnt that bad and gaining top end since this is a 4.6 and naturally aspirated thats why they can go to high rpms with no problems

It's just like the Boss manifold. Better for top end. And the same idea applies that to take advantage of it you need to spin the motor higher.

For a 4.6 most consider high rpms around 7-7.5k. I eventually plan on taking mine to 8k

He's on stock valvetrain tho. Going to be shifting at 5800-6k. PI intake flows fine at that level. PI intake is not a restriction if you have stock heads.

even though PI heads ( Performance Improvement ) are considered stock heads on 99 and up mustangs, they are upgraded heads , since they can fit 96-98 mustangs , and that alone makes PI heads on a 96-98 block a considerable upgrade in performance and able to withstand high rpms even higher to 7500 + rpms with no problem , espicially with aftermarket aluminum intakes with thresolds and some intakes up to 8500 rpms +

Building My 4.6

PI heads on an NPI motor is just going to increase compression a little bit. That's about it. PI cams fall on their face after 5400rpm. They do flow better than NPI heads, but you won't be going any higher than 6500 with them and aftermarket cams. Don't even plan on higher than 7500 in a 2v without TFS heads.

Wrong. PI heads will not flow well past 6200 without a lot of porting nor will the stock valvesprings support much more than 6k. An Eddy intake on stock PI heads and rotating assembly is a waste of money honestly. Unless you are going to be spraying and are worried about puddling.

Not to mention the cast crank won't go above 7k safely and the stock powdered rods are right at their safe limit there too.

It may not be a restriction, but I feel as though an aftermarket intake could move the power around in the rpm range. That edelbrock intake looks really trick too. Its worth it just for that effect depending on your financial situation

Well ill update the photos , just got the motor in tonight - it was a pain - my brother and i had to drop the drive shaft and transmission to get the motor in the car - just wouldn't fit at all , never had to drop the tranny or drive shaft in anyother engine rebuild or swap. The mmr adaptor plate will be in thursday, and the edelbrock fuel rails still havent came yet , they said it will be shipped on Monday since the holidays and weather has affected the deliver times and dates -

that looks great! I should paint my valve covers. I actually did an engine replacement this week and I just pulled the trans out with the engine. It was my first engine replacement and It took me 4 days

Looks good. Unsure how you even got the motor out with the trans in. Its way easier with a Mustang to just pull the trans and motor out as one unit with the hood off. Also makes it way easier to install.

Yea you should always looks better to have something under the hood painted , took us about half a day to pull the motor out , we both just go at it and get it done.

We took everything out of the car , everything ac compressor ,radiator , TB it was totally naked , always take the hood off - taking it out was easy - but never thought it would be that hard putting it back in though - but now we know when we do a 4.6 engine rebuild or swap we will take out the tranny and drive shaft just so it will be easier to put back in

I think Im going to paint my valve covers in ford blue after seeing your painted valve covers. You have a lot of edelbrock going on, so the red makes sense. I only have an edelbrock carb. NOt a lot of red going on under there so Im gonna use blue. id like to get an intake like yours though

Thanks bro , red is my favorite color , so red is kinda my thing bro - when you paint your valve covers be sure to sand them but not to rough , then make sure you use a primer , then paint them ford blue and after they dry be sure to clear them also makes them shine really nice , everything i needed i got from autozone or o'reilly either is fine ,i even painted my thermostat housing red lol

Yeah for some reason I didn't even think of putting clear coat on it in this case. I always like to buff the base coat with a micro fiber rag and some rubbing compound, put the clear on, and then buff that too the same way. I can get it looking pretty good with just rattle cans

awesome. thanks for the update..

I think I've read a discussion blog regarding that this particular mod on the low-end spectrum of the engines performance; would cause it to lose some power?

But the mod is primarily focused on high-end gains?

The motor is now in , and this build with the edelbrock victor jr intake is the most incomplete mod i ever had to do , would not recommend it at all - about close to $250 in fittings alone , and my hood will not close because the intake is like 3 inches taller then the stock intake , so now im looking for a 2.5 inch cowl hood so that i can close my hood , so when i drive it i take my hood off , then puts it back on when i park it and put the tarp over it , such a pain

Question now that i have the motor in and insurance and tag , it feels like its bogging down if i want to pass someone , strange and i uped the fuel pressure from 25psi to 40psi just to see if the problem was that it wasnt getting enough fuel but the problem is still there , new ngk irridium TR55XI spark plus gaped at .054 , new everything damn near
