Intake manifold broke piece

Hey guys, I was driving the other day and saw coolant fly up on my windshield. I pulled over and saw the piping on the top left of the manifold had cracked in half and was letting coolant out. I tried to patch it and it didn't really work and the car would not accelerate right, it was skipping bad. Can you buy that piece of the manifold or would I need to buy a whole new manifold ?? Thanks for any help 👍🏻

You need to purchase a new manifold.
Get a FRPP. Most people that buy a Dorman manifold are disappointed by the loss of performance.

Sorry I didn't say but it's a 2v. Isn't that manifold for 3v's ?

I was looking at the typhoon manifold? Good choice ?

No. You need the FRPP factory replacement manifold for the 2V.

Oh ok my bad. I just typed in frpp Manifold on Google and it came up with the 3v's. I didn't specify when I typed it in. Thanks for the help! Much appreciated ✊🏻

Ford Racing 4.6L Performance Improvement (PI) Mustang Intake Manifold M-9424-P46 (96-04 GT) - Free Shipping


That's the one you want.

Get Fel-Pro gaskets, get a new t-stat and make sure you have a torque wrench. Torque to 22 ft lbs in a 3 step process and make sure to follow the torque pattern. You can google that. I tighten to 10 ft lbs, then 18, then 22. Gets it sitting down nice and evenly.

Hey guys I replaced the intake with another oem intake as suggested and it already broke on me. It's in a different spot but it broke on the first pull I tried to do.

Faulty intake or should I just go ahead and go aftermarket

Did you buy it brand new or used? Never buy a used plastic intake. Buy new Ford Racing from AM and it'll last 100k.

I bought it used from a mechanic shop around my area.

Used PI intake=its going to blow up on you in short order unless you KNOW it is low miles like the one I have on the 34k mile Vic motor I just got.

All the plastic intakes crack and warp over time, its just a matter of when. NEVER buy them used.

FRPP new from AM, you would have spent less if you would have just bought new unfortunately...

So at what point do you replace the intake rather than wait for it to go bad?

I replaced the original one on my 03 2 months ago so about ten years a new should last or so

If you've got over 100k on it, something to consider. They all eventually break where the hoses connect or they warp under where the metal crossover bolts to the plastic under the tstat.


The "PI problem" is that the intake is actually ridiculously ridiculously good as far as flow/performance goes as well as being super light. It just has a shelf life. That said, they are cheap and they last a good long while. If you can't afford $215 plus $25 in gaskets every 100k... dunno.

Get a Bullitt intake


Bullitts are better than Bullets

The intake manifold gasket set for our Bullitt manifolds cost more than 4 times what the GT gasket sets cost.

Doing a Bullitt intake is like $1k IF you can find the parts. For 5 ft lbs on the dyno and an added 25-30 lbs of weight to the nose of the car. Roofles.

PI intake is optimal until you get into high boost levels, then the Eddy intake is where its at.

You have to admit, it is pretty though...

Ford didn't do anything to the tune to to take better advantage of the manifold. They just slapped it on there. It does smooth out the torque curve a bit.
It's not all about peak numbers.

And guys used to spend BIG dollars just to "spruce up" their engine bays. Back in the 70's and 80's, they were chrome plating literally everything that could be unbolted from the car.
You just don't see that nowadays. Everything just gets covered up with a giant piece of plastic on a lot of new cars.

Oh it looks cool don't get me wrong, and the 5 ft lbs is throughout the entire curve not just a peak number. Ford did a stellar job with the Bullitt intake as far as functionality and it looks damn good too.

Problem isn't so much finding the intake either... its finding all the other stupid little things that go with it.

As far as spruce up... the Eddy is way easier and so is the TFS and the TFS looks almost the same. Both will be cheaper as well. Only way I'll ever have a Bullitt intake is if I ever buy an actual Bullitt car.
