Pro Ported upper intake plenum on my 4.6L 99+....

I got this from a guy in Phoenix Arizona, he said it was ported by Ben Alemeda, I don't think I ever heard of him, but apparently supposed to be good, anyone heard of them? It was ported to match a 70mm tbody, which is what I have. I discovered something else when I took her apart, my tbody spacer inside radius was not even as large as the inside radius of the stock plenum, I decided to leave it out, the intake spacer was fine, I guess flex goofed when he made it. I might cut it out larger sometime, unless RGR wants to ream it out to 70mm for me sometime when he has nothing to do LOL.

I didn't reset the computer after installing this piece, and after driving it some that first day it popped a CEL. Well, I checked to see if I could find anything wrong. My K&N filter had come off, clamp wasn't on properly, so I put it back on, and unhooked the battery for the night, this afternoon around 4 pm I reconnected the battery, started her up and took her for a drive, started it out around the area at easy driving speeds, then took her down the interstate 12 or 15 mi, and back, she was running great when I got back and still no CEL. Seems to be all good so far. I believe I feel a definite horsepower/torque increase as well!

why would a CEL trip for no air filter?

It didn't, I found the culprit, when I had the C&L inlet pipe off I knocked the PCV valve out of the valve cover, this apparently caused a dandy vacuum leak which did trip the CEL. Since I fixed it, about 100 miles, no more CELs.

Hi Junior, good to see you back man! Hope the new parts work well for you man! I wanted the C&L plenum, but I had the Mac 70mm tbody, which isn't quite enough for it really, and I ran up on a deal for this one for 115 shipped, so I jumped at it, seems to do very well. As you can see I am a big C&L fan, don't know why anyone would put a Pro M maf on their Mustang personally, but hey, different strokes, lol, good luck!

hey fellas..yeah after the server problems i kinda forgot about this place lol sorry...

Car came out great. I am going to buy a prochamber insted of modifying the stock H-pipe. I am putting the LTs on this weekend.

I sold a Pro-M lastnight rick. I bought the wrong size and i bought it for $80, sold it on ebay for 160 w00t! So that will cover the cost of helping me make the hood scoop functional. 8)
