  1. Hi everyone!
    I am new here. I'm on my cellphone. When I get to my laptop I will make a proper introduction.

    I have a 2001 Ford Mustang GT 4.6/281 SOHC 2v
    The wonderful composite plastic intake manifold broke. Where the giant tube comes out and into the heater core became brittle and just snapped off. I DO NOT want to buy another composite with aluminum runner manifold from dorman for 149 $ and its pointless to get a used unit... its a big job to put one of these on. Yet 899 $ for a nice trick flow unit is not ib my budget. Does any one know of any suggestions for a nice after market piece? Maybe one being sold in any classifieds? Is it even worth getting a nin composit unit? My car only has 88k on her. Thanks for the help!

  2. The Dorman piece is junk and is known for issues....genuine FRPP is the way to go around $225

    The install is not bad and can be done with basic hand tools and a little time. Mark stuff with tape and numbers if it helps you

  3. The intake replacement is intimidating to consider attempting. However, like was mentioned above, it is really not difficult at all. I did mine in a few hours. FRPP PI intake is the only really good option unless you forking out $900 for the Trick Flow.
  4. I have the Professional Products intake manifold. It is a good upgrade and several hundred dollars less than the Trick Flow manifold. You can get the manifold with plenum and 75mm TB for about a little over $600. The satin one is less than the polished. They install the exact same way as your stock manifold. I recommend them. I have had that on my car for about 6 years now.
  5. op, why do you say its pointless getting a used intake? good deals can be found on quality pieces
