What are yout plans with the car? Cause as is, another intake won't do you much good. I assume you want to plan for the future...

TFS makes a great intake, but on a budget a gt40 matched with some gt40 heads will give you a decent increase over stock. Get a T. Moss ported one and you're on the right track.Throw a Vortech on there and you can get into some serious trouble! Lol

It's an auto, he's CFI. Your gonna wanna ditch the setup first. Either go to carb or convert it to EFI. I don't think their is much out there for the CFI systems.

I'd honestly get a 5.0 Explorer motor, swap the cam with a b cam, drop it in, put a nice carb'd intake with a good carb on it and get it dialed in and run it. Will pick up at least 100whp from what he has now.

Lol, that's a pic I show ppl who think the DSS girdle they got is going to hold their stock block together at 600hp.

And b cam ftw indeed. Cheap, idles good, sounds good, FRPP part. Not going to get a ton of gain out of a custom cam until you go to a better set of aluminum aftermarket heads and even then...

Everyone wants to hate on it, and the rest of the alphabet cams. But when you can get a good used b cam for $50, what's to hate? There is probably 15 or less hp to be had with a custom grind.

When you've got a custom built and blown motor or a bit 351 based stroker, yeah go custom. If you have a HCI stock bottom end 302 with bolt ons, save the $200-$250 and go with a good used letter cam or TFS1 cam or whatever. I got a used comp XE cam when I did the HCI on my Cobra and it made 300+ to the wheels no problem and that was with Edelbrock heads.
