Boss intake manifold and the stock intake

Is there some kind of small cheap adaptor to make the stock intake work with the boss manifold? Like a small angled coupling? I dont want to cough up money for the install kit $100 or a cai $300

Yes, you can order the boss air inlet tube from your local parts counter, then you just need to do the fuel hose/clamp trick for the fuel tank vapor purge valve. You can pick these parts up at any hardware store or get them from LRS for (the ludicrous amount of) $10.99. Mustang Mustang Boss Intake Install Kit (11-13) at LRS - Free Shipping!

Not really ... I ordered it from a local Ford dealership. The Ford parts site shows the same part number for the coyote and roadrunner part, but when they go to order it the system asks if it's for a GT or Boss.

I've been happy with it. I'm running 3.55s but plan on switching to 3.90s or 4.10s (I actually just started a thread about that). The install was stupid easy, knocked it out in my garage with an extra set of hands in no time at all.

Here's the other thread that I started.

Gear Options with MT82, Boss IM and Tall Tires

Re: Boss intake manifold and the stock intake

Yeah everyone keeps talking Bout gears with the Boss....3.73 I guess is the best option....I have the weak 3.31.....please don't laugh...lol...but doesn't higher gear ratio burn even more gas? Plus I keeping hearing about TQ loss in low RPM!

If you have a manual, your best bet with stock tire sizes are 3.90s, with 3.73s coming in a second choice. Yes, gears will effect fuel economy but were talking about a few MPG. Shouldn't make a huge dent in your wallet if you can afford to mod a brand new Mustang GT. You do lose a little low end torque with the Boss, but it's worth it for the top end gains and very small anyways.

I would put in whatever gears are going to work best for you now. If you're going to cough up $5k or more for a blower, then changing gears will be a minor expense at that point, especially since you stand a good chance of the MT82 grenading and having to put in a T56 magnum or Transzilla.

It was $65, list is something like $95. I have it in my daily driver still sitting on the floor since I'm waiting for the updated tune from AM (don't get me started on how it's taking them 3 days to change my tune to use a different MAF housing) so I'll see if there is a specific part number that I can get for you when I run out for lunch.

That sounds familiar, when my friend ordered mine he was using random Boss VINs that he had on file

Yes. Well, gears would be a good idea

Re: Boss intake manifold and the stock intake

I just installed that part ... when you attach it, it appears there is no way in hell it will fit. It goes bend right into position though. I'll snap a pic here in a bit if I remember.

Now I'm updating this craptastic SCT software. The autoupdater failed at life so I'm downloading it again from their website at a blistering 10KB/s. I've been taken back to 2001 and the speeds of ISDN lines

Agreed. They don't need a VIN, he was trying to not do his job

I thought it was stupid ... the advantage is I don't have to look at it every time I open my hood and think "what a cheap piece of crap" or explain what "that silly looking thing" is constantly at cruise-ins and shows.

Is it meant to keep the cabin quieter?

Its original purpose was to pipe engine noise into the cabin. My exhaust fulfills that purpose exceptionally well.
