How much hp/tq do you think this will add?

So randomly one day I started smelling that sweet smell from behind the wheel of my 2000 GT. Popped the hood, and I swear I already knew what the deal was. Intake manifold, good ol' plastic 13 years later. Well, it had a great run!

So I thought, why not upgrade?

- Edelbrock Victor Jr. EFI Intake Manifold
- Edelbrock EFI Fuel Rail Kit
- Accufab 90mm Race Throttle Body w/ Spacer
- Edelbrock Ultra Low Profile Throttle Body Intake Elbow
- Pace Setter Black Long Tube Headers

Just a ballpark estimate for fun here, not going to hold anyone's estimate to the fire. How much power do you think I'll gain from all this?

Realistically like 20. Cant take what each claims to give you. You will see more of a gain tuned than not. And 90mm? Never heard of anyone going that big on our motors or even making one. Anything bigger than 70-75 doesn't have enough air velocity to be useful so you'll need boost, I only bought my 78mm because Im about to boost.

Why on earth would you go with a 90mm throttle body?

Called the website after I sent an email about it. They did send the right part. Before I posted this thread my question was the year in the description in the link that I had provided in my previous post, (which read 86-93) which alarmed me at first. Secondly, it was the size. 90mm for an N/A GT doesn't seem logical on even a blown GT for that matter. So I'll ask my buddy at the shop and see what he has to say or what he can do for me locally. Cause, I live in Miami and not New York. You need a car down here and mechanics city wide know that.

I'll keep you all posted.


As for the stang, can't wait to get her back. Miss her like hell already. It's going to sound amazing with all those mods.

Keep us updated man. I'm pretty sure you should stick with maybe 75MM max if you really have to go that big. Those long tubes are gonna be nice though. As long as you don't scrape constantly. Haha

If you're not boosted, you don't want a 90mm TB

lol thanks CJ, I hope it doesn't make that sound. Definitely not the sound I was hoping to get out of it. Been there and done that in my dark Honda days. ::shudders:: I wonder if you're the Cole Johnson I used to text car stuff with? If you are...let me know.

Yeah, I agree. 90mm is a bit much. Contacted my buddy already. Known him since high school. I trust him and his shop to do something locally with that.

- Edelbrock Victor Jr. EFI Intake Manifold Just get a good PI intake with the metal crossover. NA you won't gain much if anything with the eddy and you'll lose low end.
- Edelbrock EFI Fuel Rail Kit Not needed unless you run the eddy intake.
- Accufab 90mm Race Throttle Body w/ Spacer Get the Dragon 75mm TB. Also get a TFS or Accufab plenum if you don't already.
- Edelbrock Ultra Low Profile Throttle Body Intake Elbow Again, not needed if no eddy intake.
- Pace Setter Black Long Tube Headers If you do get longtubes, stay away from Pace Setters. Honestly the stock manifolds on a modular are not restrictive, there are more bang for the buck mods you can do.

Just a ballpark estimate for fun here, not going to hold anyone's estimate to the fire. How much power do you think I'll gain from all this?
Post the rest of your mod list. Include any suspension mods too, people always seem to neglect suspension...

-Exhaust
-Shorty shifter
-TB/Plenum
-Tuner
-Suspension
-Good wheel/tire setup

Like I said post the rest of your mods.

Ah... 10-4. I have the following already done:

- Bassani X-pipe
- Short shifter
- Eibach springs
- Koni shocks
- CAI


Thinking of getting a good tune right after these are all dumped in too.

+1,000

Even if your going boosted its still one of the best intakes you can get. Its pretty much a waste of money on a NA 2V 4.6 to buy a different intake than the plastic one. Do some research on the gains, AND losses with an aftermarket one, and then decide. I'd save the money on the intake and put that towards the other parts you want.

That's what I was afraid of.....

P.I. stands for Performance Improved. As opposed to the non P.I. which was on the 96-98' GT's.

Although it is a good intake, its still not worth the money on a NA car. They are ridiculous money, and you won't notice a difference; well except for your wallet being lighter, and when you pop the hood. But in the end, its the OP's money, he can do as he pleases with it.

^ bingo!

Seriously, thanks for all the help. I posted this thread after the fact because I wanted those parts and I wanted that done to my car.

It kind of sucks to be told left and right that I wasted money on it and it won't do anything for me, etc, etc.

But oh well! Just as I'm free to post you're free to post lol. Even if I don't like the responses, I respect them and actually enjoy them to be honest.

No pride here though guys, when I get the car and drive it...if it's a turd, I won't try and polish it cause it's still a turd. But if it really feels 100% different like I'm being told by the shop who's done this to a stang before? I'll post it here. Whatever the outcome.

Guess we'll see how it goes!


On a side note. I bet it'll sound different too now, right?

You forgot they weigh 30lbs more than the PI intake. And if you ever want to do a centri or a turbo you need a specialized kit.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. The PI intake is the best 2V intake for a bolt on 4.6L car end of story. If you are doing crazy boost or an assload of nitrous on a forged bottom end then look at the Edelbrock. But even on 20+ psi ppl still run the PI intake with success.
