Looking for more power. Either Ford Racing Intake manifold or the C&L Intake manifold. What's better ? Heard some bad and good about the ford racing. Haven't heard much about the C&L. Thanks !
Yea I've seen it. I just wanted to hear from people who actually have either one. Thanks
Really ? Heard from some that the manifold with other bolt ons and a tune give nice powerOh in that case I wouldnt change it unless you going with a supercharger or turbo you probably wont notice anything
I was taking about intake manifolds, not cold air intakes. The ford racing intake is nice but I heard it had some problems where it kinda flexed with throttle.Search the forum you will find this has been beat to death. They all are about the same. I hear the JLT 3 is one of the popular ones. Ford racing looks good under the hood but is quite expensive. You pick what you like best the power comes from the tune.
I would do gears, then UDPs then cams then intakeC&L cai. Flowmaster catbacks. Cat deletes. LT headers. From there I was thinking to do some pulleys, intake manifold, throttle body, maybe change gears and put cams. I know they all give small gains, but it all adds up
The intake manifold will go nice with cams or supercharger. Otherwise it's not worth it and you'll only see like a 5-10 HP differenceC&L cai. Flowmaster catbacks. Cat deletes. LT headers.

With cams it has shown to put up 17 to 20 whp after 5400 which is worth it if you're going for peak power while willing to lose low end torque. Cams and heads has shown 25 to even 40 whp with a big cam. The 'worth' is entirely dependent on the goals of the OP. You definitely lose some torque under 5k.Take it from me it is NOT worth it. When I had my 07 gt I put the ford racing manifold on and if anything I lost torque. Don't do it unless you are going turbo or centrifugal supercharger. It is a waste of 500 bucks if you are staying n/a. It does look cool though.
Well you have to consider the cumulative gain from heads, cams and manifold. Easily 4 times that. That is the money pit I'm heading towards anyway lolI didn't hear any talk about cams and heads but that is true. But 2500 bucks is a little steep for 20ish horsepower Imo.
