Im just concerned because the metal part at the end is not on 99-01 mustangs. Said that they are plastic and leak easily.

And since it has the metal i was just concerned

The aluminum cross over is a updated intake manifold that they changed over I believe in late 2001 .. to fix alot of the issues with th cracking.
It's stock .. Unless previous owner changed it out for a new one.

I agree with Steve it looks stock, if you google P.I. Intake there are hundreds of pics to compare.

You car must be a 99 or newer, only saying that because the crossover only has one temperature sender and no plug wires.

Older models have two, one for the gauge and one for the ECU.

96 thru 98 had NPI and 99 thru 04 had PI the aluminum crossover is available for all of them.

If you are looking to upgrade you cant beat the Ford Racing Intake, if you want to spend a lot of money you could buy the "EDDY" but from everything a have read o gain to be had on a n/a 2V

The picture in the original post is stone stock. Stock intake, stock plenum, stock air inlet and everything.

Nope, the FRPP intake IS the PI intake IE its the same as the stock intake. You only buy one if you are a NPI car upgrading or a 99/00 or if you need to replace your leaky PI intake manifold... like me... again. They all leak eventually under the tstat housing, even the metal crossover ones. The plastic warps.

The Eddy intake will pick up some power up top but lose a little down low which is bad for a bolt on 2V. Can't rev high enough to really make use of it and needs all the help it can get on the bottom so the PI intake is optimal.

99/00 did not have these metal crossovers, it was plastic and they ALL break early on.

Yes the 96-98 crossovers have 2 bungs for the sensors. The 01-04 and the FRPP intakes have the one bung and a boss for the second bung which is the perfect spot to drill/tap for an aftermarket water temperature gauge. Or if you buy a FRPP intake for 96-98 NPI car you need to drill/tap it for the second sensor.

Word of advice to anyone reading this. If you have a bad intake manifold, NEVER buy a used one. As I said, they all warp under the tstat housing and it doesn't matter if it is a low mileage intake, it is a matter of time and heat cycles. The pullout JY motor I bought had this problem at 38k miles as I suspected it would.

This



That happens to all of them. If you have a high mileage car and start smelling coolant, this is likely where it is.

If your looking to add a little horsepower you can add a nice cold air intake and bigger throttle body and plenum assembly. Like I did on mine...

Maybe a little from the tb/plenum but the hot air intake isn't an upgrade from stock.

Plenum / throttle body / intake will give you very minimal gains for the money spent.

This is a correct statement.

Also in the aftermarket world in general. There are a LOT of things that are both snake oil and things that just give little in the way of return for the money spent.

Cold air intakes - No power
Plenum + 75mm throttle body will give 6rwhp and around 8rwtq

The bbk 78mm tb/lower integrated unit u lose 2hp until 4200 then pick up 6hp but gain 8-12tq across the board stock. With 93r tune, ported heads, stage 1 cams and aftermarket lower it was good for 16hp and 19tq
