Now that the FRPP intake is near $300...

Contemplating getting the eddy just to fix the plastic warping issue once and for all... I have to get a new intake anyway and I have a Novi... I probably should for futureproofing reasons. Thoughts?

I mean I am leaning towards it and I know the pros and cons. Biggest thing was the extra $$$ over the PI and the rails but the rails aren't a huge deal and now that the cost is about even...

Heck I could probably get a used Eddy for less $$ than the PI now and no issue getting a good used one vs a used plastic one that may or may not have issues.

I'm laughing that you even made this thread. You basically made the best argument toward getting it already. Lol what could we possibly say?

Sounds like a wise choice

I'll trade you my Bullitt intake.

Get me a coyote and I'll give you the manifold 😂😂😂


Bullitts are better than Bullets

Now that the FRPP intake is near $300...

Are there any metal intakes besides the Edelbrock, Bullitt, and Typhoon?

Seems like you'd think more options would be available...

Edit: not including custom metal intakes that cost more than my car is worth

Lol.
In Scotty's application, I'll bet he wouldn't notice much of a difference.
On boosted engines, the flow characteristics of the intake side don't matter as much because the intake manifold becomes a storage tank for the pressurized air.

I also forgot about Trick Flow.

A Google search showed the BBK as a pretty expensive piece, too.

You would think there would be a market for an aluminum intake in the price range of the Typhoon or Edelbrock... Maybe if Ford was still making the 2V?

The BBK intake was/is a steaming pile of dog ****. So was their attempt at the 5.0 pushrod intake...


Intakes for the 2V are the PI/FRPP, the Bullitt, the TFS, the Eddy and the P51 along with custom sheetmetal ones obviously. The typhoon is just a really expensive metal PI intake that has heat soak issues along with casting flash and Chinese quality control problems.


I made this thread just because I was thinking out loud and wanted to get some input. I know that with the Novi on a stock 2V motor it is overkill but if I'm buying an intake and they are both near $300 I don't want to be buying again.


I'm also going to look into doing a clean mod of the stock fuel rails to work with the eddy intake if that is possible. Shame to get new rails when the stock rails support a ridiculous amount of fuel.

Thanks, I'm just trying to learn and see what options I have. I hate to spend $300 on a plastic intake whenever it's time to replace mine.

Novi intake?

The fuel rails on the Edelbrock is what concerns me. I'd definitely be interested on how you do it, if you do.

The Novi is a supercharger. I have a Novi 2000, kind of between a T trim and a YSI in Vortech terms. Its a big mother****er that is for sure...

If you go with the Eddy and end up using the stock rails and I have read some have used stock rails with some modding but they never say how. So if you figure it out and it works good do a good write up how too with pics. I would be interested in going this route without buying there rails which cost the same as the intake lol.

Scotty I'm sure you already know this. But MHS offers a fully set up eddy intake with correct fuel rails and you can have them drill and tap the location for FPS http://www.modularheadshop.com/mhsed...1999-2004.aspx

Since we're on the topic about manifolds? I ended replacing mine after noticing the back part where the heater hose connects, started to deteriorate. I found a aluminum intake manifold, brand new for $220. The company that sells them, just so happens to live about 5 min away from me. After a delayed shipping? I called the company to see what the hold up was, and they said that they had ran out of the satin one, which is the one I ordered. They told me they would just give me a polished one at the same price. Are they any good? I took it anyways because i too, do not want to deal with replacing the manifold. This would be the second time i change it.

Ugh, with getting new rims I very well might just cough up the $295 or whatever they are now and get the PI and just deal with it. It will be brand new and will last years. Of course they increase the price now... blargh.
