There is some testing going on. But no there isn't a aftermarket intake manifold for the 3.7s. :/

Uhgggg.. I don't get why they wouldn't make one for the fastest v6 they have produced.

Ford does not do aftermarket parts like that. The stock manifold is well designed and only special applications would require different. It is the aftermarket people who will make one.

Before dumping a bunch of money into performance parts

I do believe the aftermarket manufactures were afraid that the 3.7 would be dropped in the 2015 Mustangs.
Well, Since it is still going to go into the Mustangs with no changes I'm sure you will see a lot of performance stuff for the 3.7 V6 pretty soon.

And as far as cams, you gotta get the stocks ground. And we have 4. It's cheaper to run that ghost cam tune from MPT. But you run the risk of roasting the cats.

I've had the ghost cams and caused world of problems. My throttle just stuck open when I floored it and still does now without ghost cams. And the throttle surges crazy . No one knows what's wrong

And there's absolutely nothing wrong with the stock intake manifold for it's configuration. The "runners" bend to the passenger side to balance the intake air and have it flow smooth. Just like the stock cold air box; hard to make it any better. Most aftermarket suppliers sell a CAI, but boast HP/TQ increases when combined with a tuner.

Other than cosmetics, the stock intake is fine. This is why you're not seeing an aftermarket replacement. There was one guy on another site that made a few intakes for the V6; he experimented with ones that looked simular to the Boss; it was a center type, but after testing with it, the 3.7 actually lost power. So, it looked nice, but power was down. I have not heard anymore on it. He moved out to California I believe, and the project lost steam.

Your stock intake can be ported to smooth out the flow, but this may not offer too much more flow than it already has, unless you mate it with a larger throttle body, and perhaps a set of headers.

The slight problem I see with our beloved V6's in stock form is that they will be the base offering. The turbo 4 and 5.0 will be the premium engines. The turbo 4 will have more HP than our V6, so the aftermarket may go after that, and perhaps less on the V6.

Reason for the turbo 4? it will be the European "push". They love 4 bangers. Auto manufacturers that concentrate on the European market (i.e. Audi, BMW, Mercedes, and VW) have been making killer 4 cylinder turbos for years with great success; great performance and fuel economy. It's what the world market demands. The U.S. is one of the rare few that likes displacement...our fuel is still the cheapest. I suppose if we had to pay close to 8 bucks a gallon such as it is in Europe, we might be thinking more on these 4 bangers!

Eight $$$$$$$$ each gallon -DUH !!!

If that happens my next car will be a "BUS"

With non-metal manifold, it is easy for a machinist to port a manifold to reduce any flow interference. This would be the best way to better performance without creating any problems, and relatively inexpensive.

So why hasn't anyone bought or reviewed their products? Just don't wanna do engine work like back in the day? Lol

I like that someone is actually doing it though

If you search lonewolf on google. You should come up with some info. I've seen some of the intake manifolds ported.

Lonewolf does great work. Porting the upper and lower intake manifolds will increase power on the 3.7L. Combined with a CAI and a full exhaust you will notice a great increase in power and performance.
First hand experience.

What's the cost of the porting? Do u send in yours or do they do a core exchange after so u don't have any down time waiting for yours to be ported?

Lower intake gives the most improvement in flow, flow restriction reduced 21% for $300 plastic, $350 metal; plus $100 core exchange fee

Upper intake they say already is great, but some seams can be removed for anther $200

It won't be long you'll see 3D rapid prototyping making manifolds for everyone on a per order basis. No two alike. Years ago we flowed wet intake manifolds. Today it's air only and they are pretty science out with both economy and power at street driven rpms. I think if anything, the V6 could/should have another .350" in stroke. That would help down low torque where it needs it most. Cost would be around $1000 with new forged pistons included. Plus labor.

Where do you get the 1k cost? I keep seeing 3K-3.7K in parts only.

My thoughts are if you can offset grind a stock crank on the rod throw to a Honda rod size (1.880) and increase the stroke whatever that amounts to, your way ahead. Then, forged pistons to compensate for the new pin height. Don't have dimensions on this crank. Any out there?

We pay more than eight bucks a gallon...

Yikes. I was quoting prices back when I was in germany in the mid to late 90's. It was something like $2.85 a litre (desiel), and 4 litres is right at 1.05 gallons. So even then I was wrong, more like 11.40 bucks a gallon.

In looking at current prices, it appers to be 2.20 USD per litre (regular unleaded), so that kicks out to be 8.80 per gallon. I'd not like to know what premium is going for!

I pay right around a dollar a litre, so not so bad... Germans pay about 1.60-1.75€ a litre... It adds up. Costs about 60€ to fill my tank... That is somewhere around 80 bucks. I haven't been in the US since 2010, so I'm not too sure what you guys are paying these days.

Here where I am at 3.089 US GAL, it is about $49 USD to fill a totally empty tank at 16USGAL a MUstang, if you used 87 , Add .20 cents for 93 Octane or 3.289 for a $52 dollar cost (see not much extra for the best octane)

My Truck is 26USGAL or $80 USD

Here in Georgia, add 40+ cents for premium so about $6 a tank.

Wowsers, that is a big big jump. What is your average cost? St. Charles MO on I-70 is the cheapest place I ever saw gas, when it was 2.89 in NW Ohio they would have it for 2.22, when it went up to 3.79 in NW Ohio they had it for about 3.19

I drive through 4 counties on the way to work And the price of 87 ranges from 2.99 to 3.29 as of yesterday. All stations are 20 cent per gallon more for the next octane.

I was stationed in Germany and while the prices of gas were very high compared to the states, it was about the same as stateside at the on base gas station.

Most of the price difference between the States and Europe is taxes. That is why PX gas is always cheaper.

Eh, we usually pay right around the national average... So some people pay more and some pay less... We save on taxes for booze and tobacco, mostly... Everything else isn't too big a difference.

Here in Alabama, shell floats the 93 octane for about .60 cents more than regular. It's about $6-7 a tank. I never let the gas light come on, feel like I'm burning up my fuel pump in the tank.
