    Was just curious if the typhoon intake manifold for my 00 GT would be worth it? I have ford racing shorty headers with an o/f x pipe. Other things to like a diablo delta chip, 3.73's and flowmasters.

    what would be the next best step? torque converter? timing adjuster? shift kit? I want something i can feel? OR the TB/ intake plenum combo? mass air? I'm just not sure what would be the best choice.

    yeah, but not enough to justify the money spent IMO. The complete bullitt kit is over $1k I believe, as is RR, P-51......if you have to have a manifold wait until Trick Flow releases their in early 07 and be the guinnea pig for stangnet. :nice:

    sorry i'm not much of a mechanic, but it looks like a stock plenum and intake. whats on it that makes it special? 1,300 is a reasonable amount, it's that 4500 for a supercharger thats tuff!
