Hey, guys. Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com here with the Ford Racing High Performance Intake Manifold for 2005 to 2010 GT Mustangs. The Ford Racing High Performance Intake Manifold is going to be a great option for the three-valve S197 owners out there that are looking for a transition mod to help build a powerful, naturally aspirated setup or even wanted a little boost. These intake manifolds give the best performance when they're paired with other mods like cams on a throttle body, so it's more of a complimentary upgrade that will set you on the path to squeezing the most performance out of the three-valve. So I'm going to go ahead and say that this intake manifold does not make a very good first modification unless you're just shopping for looks. If you aren't as concerned with the performance gains, then this is an awesome mod. It definitely looks great under the hood, it's flashy, and it grabs attention. But if your car is completely stock and you throw this manifold on there, then you're performance gains are going to be minimal and impressive looks is about all you're going to gain from this manifold. Where this manifold really thrives and performs is when it's paired with other mods. On any cars it works best with a set of cams and aftermarket throttle body, which is why we pair with the Ford Racing Hod Rod Cams and the Ford Racing 62-millimeter throttle body on the product page to help you see the most gains possible with this manifold. It also works great with boost despite some early misconceptions, which I'll come back to earlier. But the increase flow capabilities of the manifold means that it's a good pairing for boosted cars as well. Now if you do currently have a stock or relatively stock three-valve, then this manifold will open up some flow, but in all reality it does really need the help of other mods to transfer the gains. Those that have not already deleted the charge motion plates will notice a little bit more difference and have some more gains as opposed to those that have already taken this step since the mani does delete those. But like I said, this is really more of a modification for a car that already has some work done. Let's talk about the actual construction of this manifold some. It's made from a lightweight composite material, so there are some weight savings here and also better heat desiccation with this type of material as opposed to other types of materials. An aluminum manifold is heavier and easily heat soaked when under hood temps get hot, but the composite material does not react the same way. This means that horsepower torque levels will be more consistent, giving you more consistent performance. And despite some misconceptions, this composite material also functions well under boost. It can stand up the pressure. Ford Racing did pressure test this manifold to make sure that it was strong enough for force induction, and it does have some specifically reinforced areas to make sure there's no failure under boost, so you don't have to avoid this manifold if you're looking at a force induction build. This manifold does have an open plenum design and high-flow runners. So this means more plenum volume and it also has shorter intake runners. The stock intake runners are about 14 inches, but this manifold has runners that are about nine and a half inches. I mentioned this earlier, but this manifold does have the IMRC delete or charge motion control delete built into it, which is going to help supply you with some performance gains. Some more general info, this manifold will still fit under a stock hood, but you won't be able to squeeze it under a Ford Racing strut tower brace. Just so you guys are aware. It's going to include intake gaskets, a crossover fuel line, perch fitting assembly, PCV fitting assembly, and hardware as well. It almost goes without saying, and I'm assuming all of you already know this, but I'm going to say it anyway, you will need a tune for this manifold. So overall this manifold really thrives in the upper RPMs and that's where you'll most likely see the most benefits and improvements. That usually leaves people to become worried about losing some low-end power with this manifold, but you have to keep in mind what you're building for and how you plan on building it. This manifold is really designed to help get the maximum NA gains from this motor with supporting mods, cams, long tubes, throttle body, or with a centrifugal blower or turbo setup. That being said, if you have a build along those lines then you don't have to worry about losing that low-end power. Your build will make your power band. Where you're going to lose a little bit of the low-end power is if you slap this on a stock car, like we talked about earlier. As far as price, this is a pretty serious mod and so it's going to have a pretty serious price tag that comes along with it. Power isn't usually cheap, at least good, sustainable power anyway, and so you're looking at spending a little over $600 for this manifold. Keep in mind though that this is a Ford Racing product, so you've got the comfort of Ford Racing quality, fitment, and know how backing the design of this manifold behind that price tag. The install here really isn't difficult. The manifold is obviously easy to access and I wouldn't say that it takes a ton of know-how to do, but you should have a little experience before you try to tackle this yourself. You'll need a few different sockets, a fuel line disconnect tool, a drill, and a torque wrench as well. It will take about two hours of your time and I'm going to call it a two out of three on the difficulty meter just because this is a little bit of an involved install. Giving a general overview of the install you're looking at having to depressurize the fuel system so you can remove the fuel rails and disconnecting all of the backing connections and the electrical connections to the manifold as well. This means the TPS, MAF, ETC, injectors, and intake. The fuel rails will need to be removed so you can pull the manifold, and following the proper sequence will be a good idea here when you're unbolting the manifold. The alternator bracket will need to be removed so you can modify it, which is why you need a drill bit, but the instructions are clear here and they'll help you out. After that, it's just a matter of installing the new manifold. Follow the bolt sequence here and torque these bad boys down to spec so you don't have any issues, and reinstall all of the other items, including the fuel line crossovers and all of your electrical and vacuum connections. Wrapping things up here, the Ford Racing High Performance Intake Manifold has a high-flow design with an open plenum and high-flow shorter runners to make it a performance upgrade that pairs well with other modifications. It's made from a lightweight composite material that's been pressure tested and reinforced with forced induction applications and, of course, it looks great under the hood. As always I suggest you check this thing out more online for yourself, and for all thing Mustang keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

  • Well it really depends on what upgrades you have with it. if your just replacing this item and have no other upgrades only expect about 10-15hp more. On the other hand if you get a CAI with it and a custom tune you will get around 25-35hp.

    Hear and feel the difference

    I installed this intake manifold along with the ford racing 62 mm throttle body and a throttle body spacer. Installation was fairly simple. I did run into about 4 holes where the dress bolts go that were filled with excess plastic. I fixed with a bit of patience and a drill bit. The pcv valve hoses on both sides ended up not fitting because the driver side is wider than stock so it bend the hose and pinches it. I figure you could cut it put a double sided male hose fix with son heat and hose clamps but I just got some 5/8 rubber hosing with a mesh cover. The passenger side ends up being too short with the added length of the spacer and possibly intake and throttle body. Did the same fix with a 3/8 hose, clamps and braided cover. Make sure you have a 5/8 fuel line disconnect. Intake definitely made a change in my borla exhaust sound. Its more of a crisp throaty sound. You definitely need a tune. So don't think you can get around that without a check engine light and not getting the full use of the intake.

    Love My Ford Performance Intake Manifold

    Bought and had installed my Ford Performance intake manifold and I couldn't be happier. It really compliments my JBA LT headers and Comp Cams MuthaThumpa cams. I really noticed a difference in power especially at the 4K rpm range and higher. Besides the performance side of it, I love the way the intake manifold looks under the hood. I have a SR strut tower brace that clears the intake manifold by a 1/4 inch, but it does clear it. Remember, you will need a tune since a lot more air will be coming into the engine. I would highly recommend this only if you have long tube headers and cams, otherwise you probably get no benefit from it.

    Higher rev range

    This intake manifold will move your felt powerband north by quite a bit. Gets rid of that lag feeling down low where the charge motion plates are working, smooth from low to high rpms now. Between the cams, longtubes, this intake and tunes I would recommend gears too. I'm running 3.73's in my 5spd.

    Awe Factor

    Yes we all know you can get Steeda's alternative for around $300 but how can that compare to a quality Ford Racing intake manifold. I'm often approached by older fellas, typically hot rodders, that love the exhaust note of my Grabber Orange '07 (thank you Pypes Super Beast System) and I'm pleased to talk to them. Nobody expects a modern day fuel injected vehicle to be as modifiable as a mustang and you can proudly boast the rebirth of the muscle car era with this intake manifold. Unlike Steeda's product, you not only feel the results every time you step on the pedal but every time you lift your hood as well. Next mod: Stage 3 Comp Cams and Beehive Springs P.S. Set aside an afternoon and do this yourself guys and gals, it's a fairly simple job requiring only patience and moderate inappropriate language.

    Great upgrade

    I had to replace my stock intake manifold after it was damaged by hot exhaust gases coming from the number 7 cylinder as a result of a broken exhaust valve spring. The local Ford dealer wanted more than 800 dollars for a replacement manifold and needed 5 days to get it. The Ford Racing intake manifold was more than 200 dollars less expensive and was delivered n 5 days as well. The part fit perfectly and the tune supplied by Bama is working flawlessly. I've yet to re-dyno my GT but I can feel the power increase. I'm running 87 octane gas and I've yet to see any change in fuel mileage but I'm still early in the process now. The intake looks great under the hood and my only disappointment is I could re-install my strut tower brace.

    Don't get me wrong.....

    Please don't get me wrong. I gave this manifold three stars on the performance gains because I am still lacking a pair of mods and have not reached my pony's peak potential yet. This manifold is designed to be a platform for future power adding mods. Now, with that being said, I have noticed an equal distribution in power throughout the power band. No loss of low end torque whatsoever, and the idle is really smooth. I've also noticed a slight change in the exhaust note, as the engine isn't restricted as it was with the charge motion plates. It's more of a really smooth growl now. Overall I am satisfied not only by the performance I am seeing thus far, but also with the aesthetic quality of this product, this thing is just downright sexy under the hood. Worth every penny in my book.

    The unit wasn't hard to install but took longer then 2 hours, maybe for someone who has done this before. The biggest problem is this changes the tune on the car and bama customer support is terrible. It's been 3 weeks and they quit communicating with me all together. Do not bye a Bama tune Find a good speed shop that can dyno tune your car.

    Understanding the benefits

    There seems to be lots of debate on the benefits of this intake so I went into the whole thing a bit cautious. Does it look good? - yes. Does it add power? - By itself, maybe not. With other items its a "must have". So where's the confusion? Your car will perform in a new way. By getting rid of the charge motion control plates you will change your power curve. It's smooth and it builds quickly. I think this is the reason for the debate over horse power. If you're serious about performance you must, at a minimum, get rid of the charge motion control plates. Since you're going to spend $ to do that, why not do the racing intake. After installing this I also switched to a race tune. No low end torque loss.

    Bad@$$ Intake

    This was my first time installing a manifold but it only took an afternoon to do and the instructions were pretty straight forward. I had some throttle issues and the car died after I had installed everything but it turned out to be the tune. After only thirty minutes of talking with Bama, I had my new tune and my stang ran better than ever! Bama and American Muscle continue to astound me with their amazing customer service. The throttle response and acceleration at lower rpms is a lot better now and a little past 3500 I can really feel the difference in acceleration speed. I also went from 13.5 mpg city to almost 18!!! Now I don't know what kind of performance gains you'll get from just the manifold and nothing else (I have offroad exhaust, LT headers, cams and msd ignition), but it will definitely look AMAZING under the hood. I recommend this product.

    Great Product!

    Amazing piece, i'm so satisfied with the looks and gains of this product, i will eventually swap BBK CAI with FR. other than that everything is great, i had hot rod cams installed, TB, CAI, LT will be next. one thing i was disappointed is that my Steeda strut bar wont fit, but i have seen other peoples pictures with their FRPP intake manifold and still have clearance to install their strut bars, mine wont clear the manifold, and the strut tower bolts are not long enough to support the bar with washers. so am i SOL?? but regardless its a great product, and if you wish to still retain your strut bar, do your research and double check because i did my home work and saw that a Steeda strut bar would fit but obviously mine does not, so your experience might vary from others.

    Intake Pro's and Con's

    First of all, this Manifold is pretty good overall. I have Muther Thumper Cams, a BBK Throttle body and JLT intake, along with other extranious upgrades. The Pro's: - It looks great under the hood - I can still fit my Stack Racing Strut bar over it - I can feel and hear a difference - I am getting about 1 mpg better on my daily driving (when not reving high, so I can hear the extra airflow) - Installation instructions are pretty clear but you may need to flip back and forth between the customer submitted guide and manufacturer's guide. Con's: - A vacuum hose must be cut and modified for correct fitment (heat gun may be needed, I used an indirect flame from a torch lighter, just don't leave it in one place too long) - No instructions are included. (you have to go to the AM website and get the pdf. I used my kindle or you could print them out)

    Manifold Looks Amazing in Person

    When I ordered this intake manifold, I thought it looked good, and the pictures of it on customer cars looked good as well, however, in person, the manifold looks fantastic! It really makes the engine stand out. I purchased this with several other intake and exhaust goodies so it is difficult to determine the exact performance gained from this part alone, but the package (CAI, TB, Manifold, Headers, Axle Back) combined with the custom tune from BAMA is amazing! The car seems much more violent now and I can't stop smiling when I drive it. One thing to NOTE: Apparently sometimes the two halves of the manifold (top and bottom) sometimes come already bolted together, and sometimes not because the instructions did not say anything about bolting them together and unfortunately (and embarassingly) I didn't realize that I needed to do that until I had everything installed and put back together so I had to go through a very trick process to get them all in and bolted up after the manifold was already installed. Other than that, the installation went great and I really love the product.

    Great manifold, makes power if you have the mods to go with it. Looks INCFREDIBLE

    I bought this because I am doing cams and long tube headers, and have a GT500 TB. If you already have CMDPs and you dont have AT LEAST lt headers, you are going to gain next to nothing, and bang for the buck will be next to nonexistant. I know several people here talked about the big difference it made on their close to stock cars, but that is their brain telling them a lie, that they believe, to justify the cost. Dynos dont lie, and delete plate make pretty close to the same power, on basic modded cars, until about 5000rpm, where it makes a LITTLE bit more. Really this isnt worth buying unless you have or plan on cams. UNLESS, you just want the look, which is, INCREDIBLE. It looks unbelievably good under the hood. Is it worth doing if you arent doing cams? Depends on what you want. If you dont already have charge motion delete plates, this will get you some decent power. Not nearly $600 worth when CMDPs are under 300, but decent nonetheless. Also, if you want an absolutely awesome looking manifold, this is the one to have. It never fails to get attention when I open my hood, there are always a couple people taking cell phone pics of my engine. Ford tested a combo of this manifold, the FRPP throttle body, Hot rod cams, their CNC heads, and long tube headers and it did 440HP (at the crank, so figure 385ish at the wheels) at 7000rpm. That is the direction I think I am headed. Although I may skip the heads and do a vortech instead. Makes a very nice high pitched WHOOSH sort of whistle when you hit it, almost reminiscent of a turbo. Install took me just under an hour, but I have close to 2 decades of wrenching under my belt. I could have done it faster, but I had to keep going back to the fridge for another beer. (I knocked TWO full cans over by accident) Mine doesnt seem to have the flexing, but even if it DID, Ford has stated that this is "normal" and is no problem, so dont worry about it.

    Ford Racing performance gains with OE-fitment!

    This thing fits like a glove, obviously, being that it's a Ford Racing part. A ton of people are worried about losing low-end power with this manifold, but I've seen otherwise. This manifold is really designed to be installed on a car looking for maximum N/A gains using cams and long tubes, or a centrifugal supercharged or turbocharged forced induction system. You'll make every bit of that low-end power back. I have this on my 2007 Mustang GT, at the time with nothing more than a CAI, Throttle Body and Axle-Backs for other mods. It smoothed out the entire powerband, and pulled like crazy from 5500rpm and up! There was little to no loss on the dyno printout, and you definitely can't feel it on the street with a good tune! Great quality manifold, good price and definitely going to be staying on my car to prepare for a centrifugal supercharger!
