Nah you won't lose much on the bottom end, with a decent tune you may not lose anything or may even gain

I honestly couldn't detect a loss of bottom end power but with the tune it screams at the redline.

Gasket is attached so its good to go. The install is cake. Did your friend order the install kit from AM and if so is he including it in the purchase?

I didn't notice a loss in bottom end either. In fact it was the complete opposite. Numbers might say other words, but with the Boss Mani, CAI, and tune all thrown on at once it was a whole different car. Definately buy it off him!!!

Don't waste your money on a install kit. You can save $170, go to the parts store and spend $5.99

+1 all you need is about 2 feet of 3/8 emission house and 1 M8X1.25 bolt and some washers to relocate the purge valve to the block.

Thanks yea it seems simple only thing I'm worried about is if anything is in the manifold like any debris that I can't see don't have a clue how I would clean out that and not hurt the orings

Dude! A must have, you need an oil separator! This is the one I've got. http://www.americanmuscle.com/jlt-bl...cwMTet8.mailtoClick image for larger version

ID:	79854It works just fine with the Boss Manifold. It gets about half full about every 2k miles. I love it in black but I think they sell it in polished too.

Oh and one tip I can give you is, you don't have to disconnect your fuel lines from your fuel rail. I just separated the injectors from the stock manifold and flipped them over to the side. Then after I installed to boss manifold, I just flipped them back over. It takes a little finessing but it saved me from unhooking the lines. Oh and make sure you have a descent drain pan. You have to disconnect two coolant lines at the front of the manifold and they'll spill out a little bit of coolant. Good luck bro!

Thanks and yea I already have the jlt oil separator I love the fact it keeps the oil out done emptied it twice in 3000 miles just to be safe lol it only had bought two tablespoons full in it but I would hate to think about what would happen if u let it get full

About that F150 you have. Its the same exact coyote engine right? Only the transmission is different? I saw it in a truck and it looked so small sitting under the hood. The Boss Mani would look great on it. What gears does it run? Looking at getting a used 2011 F150, and wondering what i could do to beef it up, and give it more torque.

There's actuall quite a lot different, the heads, cams, CR, just to name a few things, same block though, and the design of the intake runners on the heads are the same so that's how the boss mani bolts right up

It's a Ford son, you don't have to beef it up.

No need to disconnect the coolant lines. You can maneuver around them with ease. Also if you use the install thread on here it will tell you to put your fuel rail onto the boss mani before you place it on the car......don't or you will have issues. You can either remove it and put it on after you place the boss mani or dont disconnect it and flip it out of the way until you are ready.

Here is the link that you will need.

Install of the Boss 302 intake manifold!

Honestly though.....once you do this one you will be able to do it with our eyes closed. Good luck and let us know how it goes!

Question, AM claims 56 or 58 rwhp gains. I find it hard to believe. What kind of gains are you guys getting.

I couldn't answer that question if you are talking about just the Boss mani gains. I added LTs OR X and Boss mani all at once and haven't had any dyno time yet.

Dang I can't wait to get this thing bolted on

---------- Post added at 01:20 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:18 PM ----------

I looked at the video of the boss manifold on am and the dyno results look weird at the lower rpms like it lost 100 hp then stayed about the same till 7000 rpm then it just kept going up instead of down in power like the factory one
