We have one on our 14 V6. Nice CIA. Have it on with SCT X4 from MPT. I chose it partly because we're 'old' and don't really want to hear all the intake noise, so with it's closed box it sounds much better IMO. If you want the noise just take the lid off. Looks good under the hood also.

I never used one because I didn't feel like spending over double for an intake with the exact same flow as the original plastic intake and heat soak issues.


If you think going to a cheap Chinese metal copy of the PI intake (that often has casting/flash issues) you are in for a major disappointment.


For they price they want for these things its really stupid to be blunt. Stick with the stock intake. It makes great low end, is light and does not run out of air before the stock motor has to shift at 5800-6K rpm.


If you ever do upgrade the motor to spin past that then get the MHS prepped Edelbrock.

Hopefully nobody is spending what these things go for new for heat soak and no performance gain. The Typhoon is a Chinese metal copy of the PI. That's it.


The SR CAI is also trash.




Really amazes me how much ppl waste $$$ wise on these cars... Mid pipe, catback, shifter, tune and then suspension. Maybe Plenum and TB and then a good CAI like a JLT if you do those but it won't make a huge difference.


Full bolt on 2V is about 250rwhp which is only slightly higher than what they dyno stock and most of that is swapping the exhaust and getting a tune.

The SR intake is a joke. I have it and regret it, one of these days when I'm at my parents with my car I'm going back stock. Don't waste your money!

(I didn't know better at the time)

What is usually the full Bolt on list for a 2v?

I'm building another 4.6 with a Kellogg crank, eagle rods, wiseco or cp pistons and looking to see what would be a better choice looking to reach 850hp. I've heard good things about trick flow heads just looking for opinions at the moment.

Just FYI Eagle is all made in China.

That's a $$$$ build too for that power damn.

Get the MHS prepped Edelbrock setup for an intake.

So is scat I worked for a performance shop and we had no issues with eagle in 1000 plus hp. But I've been looking into Manley also. I just want to build it right the first time so I don't have to rebuild it again

Eagle and scab both are made in China and both finished at their factories here in the states but they're all China rods

The trick flow intake didn't deliver as well. It suffers from heat soak and you loose your bottom end. Contrary to their claims it was dyno proven to only work above a nearly stock PI motors upper RPM range. It needs cams and valves to see any improvement. I wanted it very badly but after about a months research with cash in hand I spent my money elsewhere due to too many people just hating it.
