Short answer: no. One or two companies tried fabricating an aftermarket intake manifold for the new V6s, but there were no gains worth going into full production. Last I checked, the only option we currently have is to get an OEM manifold ported and polished. I don't know the gains though. It's SuperSixMotorsports that does the work. You could try contacting them for better details

You can also contact Tom here at Lone Wolf Performance - FastFordMuscle.com

He ports manifolds and would be more than happy to talk to you about it.

The current (stock) intake manifold is going to be tough to beat, other than porting it (which will require other mods such as a larger throttle body and tuner
Ford did a great job with designing the intake air runners to balance/tune the air flow into the cylinders with its design. Many may not like the looks of it, but it works well.

Just keep the hood closed!

^Yep and he dones great work. Had mines ported by him. It's ~15 hp/Tq gain after you get the tune dailed in. This is with no other mods. Supporting mods like cai and free flowing exhaust will help with help tho. There is not much to be gained from a bigger TB on these cars other than better throttle response. I would do that last.

Did you get your upper and lower manifolds ported? Or just the upper?

Answer. SuperSixMotorsports has a ported lower intake for your car. It's the lower that has the restriction in it and offers the most potential. It's $300. The upper really isn't a restriction. Keep in mind this engine only pumps a gallon of air in 2 revolutions. It's pretty small. It needs a 3.7" stroker crank really bad.

I had the upper and lower done at the same time and super six motor sports is over priced. I had both intakes done for $365 from Lone wolf (Tom) and that included the work and him shipping it back to me. I had to pay to get the manifolds to him but they're light so it wasn't much. Do and go with who you want but other than my tune this was the second best mod to my car. Well worth it!

I don't know if he's on this forum or not..
But I know a guy named John Kerr who got a company to build a sheetmetal intake for him.
I think they were running $600 a piece.
I'd trust that man, because he knows what he is talking about.
He built his own turbo kit for his 3.7.

He is a good guy and have seen the manifold but that is a pretty stout piece more intended for boost.

Also Tom ports the lower and upper to match. Both sides of the intake can stand to use some love. He does an awesome job.

I'll have to check it out when I put the Mustang in storage for the winter.

Popeye, a guy on another forum that was looking into some custom intake setups (JimC was helping them by dyno testing I think) has a 3.5 Ecotec intake working on these cars. Still not final, but it was some tall intake runners for better high rpm performance. He's also been eyeing the F150 intakes for N/A torque.
